Ribbon Pumpkins Hair Clips

Start point: The other day, one of Sofia's little friends at school was using this very cute orange hairclip.  When I took a closer look I had to smile...it was a ribbon pumpkin!
Right there I knew I could, I knew  I would make one for Sofia!
Off to Walmart to buy my supplies:

Orange and Green grosgrain ribbon.

Total price: 4 dollars
I tried to figure out how it was made after seeing it only once, but I think it is very much straight forward and simple:
I cute one piece of the orange ribbon measuring 24 inches
Rolled it around 2 fingers
 Opened the ribbon 
 Then I cut a 31/2 inch piece of the green ribbon
With hot glue I attached it to the (cute) pumpkin 
 The original clip did not have this part, but I decided to give it a shot:
I used: a wooden dowel ( I encircled the ribbon as above), 2 wooden clothespins and my oven at 350 F for 20 minutes. 

 Hot glue.

Hot glue again to attach it to the barrette 

I made another one a bit different, this time instead of attaching it with the spiral on top, I left it on the bottom 

 orange + green cuteness!
Little pumpkin love:)
