Introduction: Easy Hair Bows!

Picture of Easy Hair Bows!

I love making cute little hair bows!! My friends wonder how I make them so.. Here's how!!
Things you need:
- glue gun
- ribbon or felt ( how much you want plus 2 in.)
- ruler
- scissors
- another piece of ribbon or felt ( around 3 inches is good)

Step 1: Pick Fabric

For this bow I'm using ribbon but usually it's easier with felt because it doesn't fray. You choose!

Step 2: Turn on Glue Gun!

Mine preheats for 5 minutes, don't overheat it.

Step 3: Pick the Length of Ribbon!

I want my bow to be 2 inches long. Later you will fold in the edges so, add 2 inches. ( I have four)Then cut it.

Step 4: Fold Each Side a Inch In

You want to next fold each side of the bow a inch in towards the center. Then glue with a small line of glue. Make sure to do this on the opposite side of the bow.

Step 5: Make Middle Piece

Cut your 3 inch piece ( if not cut). Then flip it over. Next, add a long strand of hot glue in the center. Fold one side over. Then, add another strand of glue. Then fold the other side. Flip, and there!! You completed your middle!!

Step 6: Putting It All Together!

Scrunch up the bow. Then add a little glue on the middle piece. Wrap that around. Then, cut of the excess middle piece. Add a little glue to close it off. To add a hair tie, put a drop of glue on the hair tie. Then, stick that on the bow too!!
There, you are done!!
Ps. Also works as bracelet!!
