Each Independence Day I make some sort of craft starting back when I was in Jr. High school in the 1970's when I made a copper enameled American flag pin.
So this year I made a hair ornament in red, white and blue to go with my new hair blog. The uptwist is a figure 8 that is pinned on both sides with bobby pins. I find it easier to put my hair up when it is damp, about 30 minutes after a shower. I'm definitely going to have to make some videos on how to do this one, because it is so second nature to me, I don't really think I could describe it in a way you can understand easily.
