In honor of Disney Month over here at A Peek Into My Paradise I’m back to share again. I hope you enjoyed the Minnie Mouse Cupcake Tutorial I shared on Monday! I have brought y’all a fun and easy tutorial.This is just perfect for a little girl’s first trip to Disney. It’s a ribbon sculpture hair clip of Sofia the First! She can be worn on a hair clip or glued to a headband. In this tutorial, I’m making her for a hair clip.
I love making these little ribbon sculptures. They are such fun! My little preschooler loves Doc McStuffins and Sofia the First right now, so I thought this would be a great opportunity to share with y’all how to make one of them as a ribbon sculpture.
Princess Sofia the First Ribbon Sculpture
Peach 3/8 inch – 4 inch piece, (2) 1.25 inch pieces
Lavender 3/8 inch: – (3) 4.5 inch pieces, (2) 2 inch pieces
Lavender – 1/8 inch – (2) 1.5 inch pieces
Lavender 5/8 inch – 2 inch piece
Red Brown – 3/8 inch – 1.5 inch piece, (5) 1 inch pieces
2. Round the end of each 1.25 inch peach piece to create the arms.
3. Creating the skirt. Take the (3) 4.5 inch pieces of 3/8 lavender and fold each one with raw edges together and glue each one.
4. Take the (2) ivory pieces and round the edges for the bottom of the skirt.
5. Take the 1/8 inch lavender pieces and glue them about 1/4 inch above the rounded edges on the ivory, like in the picture. Fold the raw edges of the 1/8 inch lavender pieces behind the ivory ribbon and glue them
6. Assemble the skirt. Glue the two ivory pieces together, then glue the three loops of lavender for the skirt like the picture shows.
7. Glue the skirt on top of the body about 1 inch from the body bottom.
10. Slide the bodice down onto the skirt and glue it front and back.
11. Glue the arms behind the bodice of the dress.
12. Create the sleeves/upper bodice of the dress by cutting angles at the ends of the (2) 2 inch pieces and gluing them together by slightly overlapping at the angles as shown.
13. Add the purple rhinestone right at the overlapping angles.
14. Add the sleeves by gluing it in the front on the bodice and gluing each end on the back.
15. Creating the hair. Take the 1.5 inch piece of brown and cut an angle for bangs. Glue it to the top of the head
16. Take (4) brown 1 inch pieces and cut the ends like pictured.
17. Take the last 1 inch brown piece and glue it into a loop.
18. Next, take the 1 inch lacey lavender piece, cut it in half lengthwise. Use only one half and glue it into a loop. This forms a “crown.”
19. Glue the brown pieces to the head so that they come around the shoulders like pictured down below.
20. Glue the loop of brown to the top of the head, like shown.
20. Slide the crown down onto the loop of brown hair on the top of the head and glue.
21. Creating the hair clip. Use fillet tape or hot glue. If using fillet tape, cover the alligator clip with the double-sided tape.
22. Remove the tape and cover with ribbon. If using hot glue, glue the ribbon to the alligator clip.
23. Attach the princess to the alligator clip with hot glue.
