If you are looking for a last minute idea to add instant festive cheer to any holiday party look, be sure try out this super easy DIY.
All you will need is two rather long ribbons, a hair tie, and scissors. I have not provided measurements simply because head size, and creative preference should be left subjective.
Step 1: Fold each ribbon in half. find your needed length by applying the ribbon around the desired part of your head, keeping in mind that half of it will be occupied by the hair tie.
(Tip: braids call for longer lengths, so keeping it a bit longer is always safer. You can always trim it shorter at the end.)
Step 2: Loop one ribbon around the scissors, or any stick form. Then tie a knot around it with the second ribbon. The key is to create a loop which you will need at the end.
Step 3: Begin to braid. You can either do it with 4 parts and braid a classic "fish tail" or go for the basic three and simply keep one ribbon together while braiding.
Step 4: at the end of the ribbon, choose the same ribbon you looped around the scissors, to create another loop. Tie and secure the loop with the other ribbon.
