Anyway, Stacy and her 9-year old daughter wrote and asked if I would show them how I would do Pebble's hair. So here's my inspiration:
So cute, little Pebbles.
Anyway, I started off by making the bone for her hair. (I didn't just have one laying around.) I am working on some snake heads for Emma's costume, and used the same lightweight Model Magic. It was about $5 for a bigger package at Michael's. (would have been less if I had remembered one of the 3 coupons I had at home!)
Here's the bone. It is super light, so it shouldn't have a problem staying in her hair all night...
So, start with a super high ponytail- the higher the better.
Next, put the bone at the base of the ponytail, then take a small section of hair out of the pony. (You'll use this to wrap around the bone. I split that section in two, crossed them over the bone, and brought them back around the ponytail, where I crossed them again. Now depending on the length of hair you're working with, you'll want to repeat this. On Emma's I did it twice; just make sure you end up at the back of the ponytail.
So take whatever is left of that hair that you've been wrapping around the bone, and tie it tightly with a rubberband to hold it in place. Remember Pebbles has crazy poofy hair, so this little bit out of the ponytail won't even matter.
Now just frizz up the rest of the hair with a good dose of hairspray (I didn't do this because it's still a school day,) and you're all set with a super cute little Pebbles Flintstone do!
Anyone else need a Halloween Idea??
