If your talking about archery, i have been a boyer for about 5 years now.  I would love to make an instructable on it, and most likely will later, but im currently disposed of for my country right now.  Douglas SpottedEagle wrote a good book on boyering, thats excellent for beginners.  I reccomend getting this.

Do you mean bow and arrow-bows?

You can make miniature ones with shish-kabab skewers and a bit of twine

I never wear them but my niece makes them herself.  She's used several of the instructables on this site.  Just search "hair bows".
