Did I ever show you our Ribbon Dancers?
I made these for Butterfly as one of her Christmas presents this past Christmas, I think I only Instagrammed the photos of them. I thought I would show you these a little bit closer.
Here are some photos of Butterfly dancing with them, first thing in the morning in her PJs of course :) (Really don't know how children get this energy first thing in the morning. I'm artificially energized with coffee! hehe)
It looks so pretty, don't you think?
They are really fun too and help put more creativeness and colour in dancing and moving.
So all I did was buy two wooden rings for the handles, and a roll of ribbon of each colour I wanted on them. You can find these at a crafts store.
Figure out the length you want them to be and double up on each colour by folding the colour in half and then looping them in a knot over the ring.
At the bottoms of the ribbons, I cut a triangle into them and then used clear nail polish to paint the bottoms. This has kept the ribbons from fraying at the bottom as Butterfly moves these all around.
Wouldn't these make a beautiful Summer Birthday present?
I love handmade gifts, and these are so simple and fast to make!
