DIY Chinese New Year Hair Accessories

I was interested in making Chinese knots when I was in Primary 3-4. Oh, that was N years ago. And can you believe that I still keep the strings that I bought N years ago?

Since Chinese New Year is approaching, I thought it would be a good opportunity to make use of the strings to make some crafts - DIY Chinese New Year Accessories for Pei Pei!

I borrowed some books on Chinese knots from the library, and after a few failed attempts, I finally managed to make this.



I found some Chinese knot buttons (usually used on Cheongsam / Qipao) from a craft shop at Chinatown. I made this pair of hair clips within a few minutes!

  1. Beautiful result - and I think that is very special that you still have knots from when you were in school. A wonderful memory to pass on!
