When making 3.5" or larger korker bows, it's easy to just tie the korkers together using a korker box. This method is not suitable for mini korkers though--the korker pieces will run all over the place.

In this tutorial, we will show you how to make full mini korker hair bows as shown in the title image.

Step 1: What We Need:

Picture of What We Need:

14pc mini korkers (about 2.25-2.5"). Please see step 9 for how to bake korkers. We are using our Hip Girl Korkers. 1pc each color is enough for 2 bows. We're going to use the korkers from bottom to top.

Step 2: Pull Korker Straight on a Metal Ruler.

Use wood burning tool to cut and seal at the same time. We'll get 2.25-2.5" long pieces.

Step 3: Take 1st Korker,

pull straight, use clips to secure the ends (so both hands free). A little bit hot glue in center. Pull straight the 2nd korker and glue it on first one as shown.

Step 4: Again, Secure 2nd Korker's Ends Using Clips,

Wrap ribbon on wood dowel (1/4" in diameter) as shown in the picture, secure ends using wood clips, bake in the oven 250 degree for about 30 minutes (every oven is different. unwrap the end to see if it's done). Wood dowel can be found in Walmart or craft stores like Joann.

Has anyone tried the glue dots or glue lines instead of the hot glue gun? I'd love for my 6yo daughter to be able to jump in and have fun making her own hair "pretties" but burns are noooo good!
