DIY: Hair Bows

Posted by Olivia Jayne at 00:00
Hey guys,
I've always loved hair bows but have always spent my money otherwise because lets face it, when you can choose between clothes and a bow, you'll usually choose the clothes. So I decided to try to make my own. Here's what I did!

Things You'll Need:

  • Material
  • Hot Glue Gun
  • Scissors
  • Hair Clips

 What to do:
1. First take your fabric and cut it into a square. Use whatever fabric you want your bow to be but before going out and buying some, I would recommend seeing if you have any already from previous projects or cut up some old clothing or something like that because you don't need very much.

2. No roll the fabric over until it is a long strip of fabric, the thickness that you want your bow to be. Use your hot glue gun to glue it to stay in place and cut any frayed pieces of fabric off the edges to neaten it up.

3. Now cut any material off the sides of the fabric to make it the size that you want your bow to be and fold the ends in and glue them.

4. Then pinch the middle of the fabric to scrunch it up into a bow shape.

6. Glue the middle pinched bit together so that it stays like that.

7. Now take a small section of fabric and secure it around the bow to cover the pinched middle bit. Glue it down and now your fabric should resemble a bow.

8. Finally, secure your bow to a clip or hair grip and leave the glue to set. Now your bow should be ready to use!

i hope you enjoyed this tutorial. It was very hard to explain what I was doing but you can follow the pictures and they should help. Send me pictures of your bows at
