2 inch wide grosgrain ribbon
1/2 inch wide ribbon
string (fishing line or thread work too)
3. Use a lighter to quickly run across the raw edges of the ribbon. This seals the ribbon from fraying.
4. Pinch the middle of a 6 inch long ribbon peice between your thumb and pointer finger and then use your other hand to fold down the two ends between your fingers as well. Repeat with all three 6 inch pieces. Secure by tying around the middle with string and knotting. (See the 4 pictures below).
5. Repeat step 4 with the two 4.5 inch long pieces.
6. Place a dab of hot glue on the middle of the bigger ribbon cluster and secure the smaller one to the top.
7. Take one of the 1/2 inch wide pieces of ribbon and hot glue it around the outside of a metal clip. You can skip this part but I think it makes it look more polished. Remember to use the lighter to seal the raw edges of the ribbon.
8. Take the second piece of 1/2 inch wide ribbon and find the middle. Place a small dot of hot glue onto the inside of the clip and then secure the middle of the ribbon to it.
9. Put another dab of hot glue onto the bottom of the bow and secure the clip to it. Then wrap the ribbon around to the front of the bow and make a knot.
10. Wrap the ends back around to the back of the bow and place another dab of glue on the inside of the clip and knot again over the glue. Clip the ends and seal with the lighter.
Ta-da! Your first one might take a few extra minute but these bows take minutes to make! You can roll these out like a factory! I clip these right into Delilah’s hair and they look super cute over the top or under a bun. If your little girl does wear headbands you could always clip the bow or hot glue it right onto a band as well. Ready to try your own!?
My kids start their Spring break next week and I have a few fun craft tutorial roundups coming for kids of all ages. We will be visiting family for a few days, heading to the splash pad and possibly the beach one day before we host Easter brunch on Easter Sunday. Who else has fun plans for Easter break? Safe wishes and travels to all!
