Craft: Clip on Braids

Sammy, age 13, from Australia shared this craft idea with Squigly.

Clip on braids are fun for dressing up or just hanging around with friends.

What you need:

A regular hair clip
String, wool or yarn
Glue
Scissors
Elastic band
Beads (optional, but nice)

What you do:

1. Take your string/wool/yarn and cut three pieces of it. You can make them any length you want, and add 5cm extra, so you can tie it.
 
2. Tie the three pieces of string/wool/yarn together at one end and begin braiding them.
 
3. When you have about 5cm left of the string/wool/yarn, put the beads on. You can put as many beads as you like on, but I always put three.
 
4. After putting on the beads, take the elastic band and put it around the end. Make sure it's firm, and make sure the beads won't slip over it.
 
5. Now get the hair clip, and put a dab of glue on the end. Get the braid and press the end WITHOUT the beads onto the glue.
6. Let dry, put it on and show off to all your friends!
**Try this: Make 4 clip on braids and put 2 on each side of your head. It looks really cool. You could also put some at the back of your hair, in your pony tail!
