Red, White and Blue Holiday Hair Extension for Barbie

Ya gotta buy it when you see it folks, we all know how quickly seasonal items sell out... So I'm posting this idea for the 4th of July nice and early. I'm a total sucker for the fun 98¢ holiday hair clips at Walmart and love using them as hair extensions for Barbie! I think she looks fabulous in this red, white and blue braid and pill box hat:)

You can leave the hair long and flowing or braid it.

The extension is about 14" long, Barbie is 11.5" tall...

The braid could go all the way to her feet or you could trim it to a desired length as above.

I started with the hair clip. 

I cut the comb part off of the hair clip and hot glued it to the inside of a milk carton cap.
I save the caps from my Half and Half for crafting.

Then hot glued 4 1/2" of elastic to the inside of the milk cap. 
A small hair band might work too.

I sat the hat on her head and pulled Barbie's original hair through the elastic, like a headband.

Really cute! The hat could be embellished with stickers, paint, sharpies, glitter, etc.

Oh, and if you want to, you can turn the braid into a cute headband HERE.

Make something just for fun and have a happy day!
