I created the bow leaving a few 'bangs' left behind to create a wrap around braid. I had about 3 dreads on either side (parted slightly to the side). I braided each side then joined them in the back. I wasn't sure how I was going to join them since I don't have any bobby pins. I ended up actually sewing them together with a big needle and a piece of yarn. =) It held up great.
Plus I took some non-Christmasy photos of a couple red pairs that were part of my Christmas bunch.
There you have it. Valentine's stockings and Dread Bows.
