One of my all-time favorite hair accessories to use on my dolls is...Ribbon! From doing crafts I have a ton of it laying around the house too. It's so much fun and an inexpensive way to give your doll's hair some style!
Ribbon is only $1.99-$2.99 at craft stores and on sale you can get it even cheaper. Here's some of my favorite ways to use Ribbon on doll hairstyles:
Basic Bow. I love to tie some ribbon after doing a braid or on a ponytail!
Double Bow. Use two different kinds of thin ribbon and tie them together!
You could dress it up or make it sporty too by tieing the double bow on pigtails! :)
Bow Headband. Cut a long piece of ribbon and bring it around your dolls head. Then tie it into a small bow to make a headband!
This is a great style for dolls with bangs. :)
I think Abbey looks adorable!
Braided Ribbon. Seperate your doll's hair into three sections for a braid and cut three pieces of thin ribbon. Tie them on three small sections of hair, placing each ribbon on top of a section. Then braid the ribbon with the hair.
I love tieing another piece of ribbon on the bottom of the braid for a final touch.
Princess Bow. I call it that, because I think it looks like a crown! After doing a top-knot bun, tie ribbon around the bun and make a bow. This is so cute on dolls with curly hair, like Rebecca.
I hope this inspired you to try using ribbon on your doll's hair. If you do, I'd love to see! Feel free to send me a picture at firstname.lastname@example.org
