STEP 2: Braiding

Fold the two ribbons in half to find the middle.Braided Ribbon Barrette - ribbon folded

Place the ribbons, layered one on top of each other, behind the barrette on the clasp end of an open barrette.Braided Ribbon Barrette - Behind Clasp

Without twisting the ribbon, take both ribbons from one side and weave the ribbons over the metal bar and insert them in the space between the two bars. Pull the ribbon completely through the opening and under the other metal bar.Braided Ribbon Barrette - Weave

Take the two ribbons from the other side over the metal bar, insert them in the space between the two bars, and under the second bar. As you pull the ribbon all the way through, pull the ribbon taut as you work.Braided Ribbon Barrette - Weaving

Continue braiding by alternating sides and inserting the ribbons into the middle space until the barrette is completely filled with braiding. As you braid, push the braids up to solidly fill in the barrette.

STEP 3: Tying a Knot

When finished braiding, take the two ribbons on one side and wrap around the end of the barrette. Take the two ribbons on the other side and wrap around the end of the barrette.Braided Ribbon Barrette - Tie Knot

Tie a double knot with the ribbons on the inside (or backside) of the barrette so it will not be seen.

STEP 4: Add Beads

If you want to add beads, thread them on the ribbon and tie a few knots at the end of the ribbon.Braided Ribbon Barrette - Add Beads
