I got my hair cut several months ago and finally had an excuse to use a bow I’d bought. Limited in the amount of clothing it went with-and stumbling upon an exciting amount of fun felt at Hobby Lobby-I decided I needed to make my own.

1. Hot Glue Gun
2. Printed Felt
3. Needle and Thread
4. Hair Clips
5. Pencil
6. Scissors (not pictured)
7. Cardstock (not pictured)

Step 1:

First I made a couple different templates. They all made different size bows, so cut you r template to the size you want. I used cardstock to make my template more durable. I folded the sheet and only drew on one half of it to make both sides even. I just free handed my template because the finished look is quite forgiving to any sloppy lines.
<p>OMG! </p>
A great stocking stuffer for my two little sisters
Here is a quick trick I learned while making misc. hair flowers and bows for me and my girls. To deal with those pesky glue webs (strings from hot glue) Is to use your blow dryer on a med-high setting, this makes them just sort of whither away. You just lightly wave it over the area at a close distance. *Not to close distance so not to melt the bow depending on material*
can you please put a pic of you wearing one of the bows?
ilove all the bowa not only the polka dotter and the sparkly ones too
I* and bows*
I like the polka dotted one the most!
That is so cool! Instead of hair clips, could you use bobby pins?
the bows you made are really cute i <3 bows
So easy to make and they look super cute!
I love all the sparkly ones!
