Tutorial: Hair bow madness!! (lots of images)

Postby Melanie on Tue Jan 29, 2008 11:43 pm

For the price of one expensive pair on the internet (plus shipping and handling!) you could make 6 pairs at home. This is my first post... hi, I'm Melanie. :smt006 This is my tutorial ice breaker.

I bought all my supplies at WalMart. You'll need a hot glue gun for this project!
Image
Cut some ribbons 6-7 in. If you're using a decorative ribbon like I did, glue it on top of the ribbon you're using as the base. I put a thin strip of glue the entire length the decorative ribbon
Image
Its a good idea to press hard to make sure the ribbon on top dries relatively flat. Image
Next, make a loop with your ribbon.
Image
Fold back the end of the loop and place a glob of hot glue on it.
Image
Your completed loop should look like this:
Image
Next, cut another piece of ribbon about 3-4 in. for the middle section. If you're using a thick ribbon you may need to cut it in half length wise. Place a dab of glue on one end of the ribbon and glue it to the back side of the loop.
Image
Wrap the ribbon around from back to front a couple times. Make sure you pull slightly when wrapping to give the bow its shape. If any excess wraps around to the front, just cut off the excess and then place a dab of glue on the end and glue it down. It should look like this
Image
Then you can glue on any adornments you'd like!
Image
The last step! Place a small glob of glue onto a hair clip. Quickly press the bow onto it and try to center it as best you can before the glue dries. If it's crooked, you can peel it off the clip and re-glue it.
Image
You can make a whole plethera for friends! Or for yourself to enjoy.
Image
Image
Thats it! Please feel free to ask if I didn't explain anything well.

Those are awesome, thanks! I always see the cutest bows at little stores in the mall here, but am unwilling to pay six bucks for one teensy bow. I'm soo going to make some now!

How funny - I made similar bows to the black and red ones last summer (only I didn't have a gem in them, just the bow with same-fabric center).

Totally brought me back - now I want to wear them. Just gotta find 'em!
