How to Make Hair Bows


Items You Will Need to Make Hair Bows:

  • Glue Gun
  • Decorative Ribbons

  • Elastic Hair Band
  • Cloth Headband
  • Barrettes

Step 1

Tie a bow. If you don’t know how to tie a great bow, research how online. This is important for the presentation of your hair bow.

Step 2

Tie the bow by making two “bunny ear” loops. Hold one loop in each hand and cross them. Pull the loops through the hole and adjust the ends of the bow. Make the bow even on both sides and also make the two tails equal in length. This is about as perfect a bow as can be made.

Step  3

To form a bow for a head band, you’ll need to be able to make a knot as well. Place the ribbon down the hair, wrap the ends on top of the head.¬† Make a knot and tie a bow just like the step above this one. Remember to adjust the ends of the bow and the tails. Make a larger bow to slide onto the plastic headband and position it towards the side of the head. This adds a little pizzazz to your presentation.

Step 4

Make accessories that will last a while. You are free to use your favorite colors, ribbons and more. Tie another knot and place a bow right on top. When the bow is the size you need, use a clip to position your new creation off to the side of the hair.

Step 5

Use the glue gun to secure all the decorative pieces in their proper places. Allow the hot glue to dry completely before wearing. You don’t want the decorative pieces to fall over when you decide to wear your new hair piece outside. Wear your custom creations out with elegance and style.

Step 6

Enjoy your new custom made hair bows.
