DIY Hair Bows
Although I buy plenty of hair accessories for my daughter, sometimes I need a bow to match a specific outfit and don’t have just the right thing.
So instead of going on a wild goose chase for the perfect shade of pink to match a party dress, I just make my own!
This technique is super simple and easy to customize to your own needs. You can use any kind of ribbon—the possibilities are endless, so get creative!
- Hot glue
- Jewelry wire
- Barrettes (you can buy a pack of them at the craft store).
Step 1: Tie one piece of ribbon into a knot and set aside (NOTE: This will be the same color as your top bow).
Step 2: Cut three pieces of ribbon the same length.
Step 3: Lay one piece of ribbon flat and fold into two loops as shown.
Step 4: Wrap small piece of jewelry wire around center of ribbon to secure into a bow.
Step 5: Repeat with two other ribbon lengths.
Step 6: Layer the three bows on top of metal clip barrette how you want them to look and secure with hot glue. Glue ribbon with knot on top.
