The ones I wore as a little girl always had the little beads attached to the ends so when we swung our head the beads clicked together (I told you I was a little nostalgic).
I'm going to keep playing with them. I think by twisting the ribbon, the colors could alternate down each side.
This is a great little project that is ridiculously cheap and simple to make! My daughter will be so happy with them in the morning because as she always tells me, "You know mommy, pink and purple are my favorite color."
