Make adorable and trendy NEON hair bows or bowties!

You'll need some material.
(think old sheets, tablecloths, even shirts!)

You'll also need:
Sharpie markers
Hot glue/gun
Ribbon
hair clip or pinback
scissors (always)

Step 1: Color your pattern!

Start with thin, non stretchy white material.  About 8 by 10-12 inches.
(you can do smaller, you will just get a smaller bow...)
Stretchy material would work, but you'll have to hold it tight while coloring.
You could use old t-shirts...sheets, tablecloths, whatever...
I'm all about recycling and free.

Use Sharpies or permanent markers to color on the fabric!
It's like watercoloring because the ink bleeds a little.

Any pattern you like!  Chevrons, arrows, anchors, polka dots...even just scribbles!
And you only need to fill the center about 6 inches wide and 4 or 5 inches tall.
