How to Make a Hair Bow Tutorial Really, it only took me about a half hour to make this, and that included taking pictures for this tutorial. Easy Peasy. And, the great thing is, you can make it as big and loopy as you want. It could have had more loops if I wanted. But I was going for simple.

You will need:

Hairbow Making SuppliesDouble Ruffle Ribbon (I used approx. 1 yd)

Lined Alligator Clip

Some spare string (embroidery floss would do–just a small piece)

Scissors

Glue Gun (not pictured)

Directions:

Take your ribbon and start to make loops in the size you want your ribbon to be. I cut mine off of the spool first, but if you’re not quite sure how much you’ll need, you can cut it once you’re done with your loops.

Double Ruffle RibbonContinue to make loops until you are happy with the general fullness of your bow. It doesn’t have too look quite perfect yet. You can manipulate it later.

Trim off the excess double ruffle ribbon. Squish the center of your bow together and tie a piece of string around it to hold it in place.

Trim a small piece of double ruffle ribbon to wrap around the center of your bow. Hot glue the lined alligator in place on the back. Now some of you are going to think I put this clip on backwards. but I like it this way. That way it lays flat against the little girl’s head.

You will then wrap the piece of double ruffle ribbon around the center of your bow and secure with hot glue between your clip. Trim off ends of ribbon once your are done gluing in place.

Now you can manipulate the loops on your bow and make it look pretty. All done!

  1. I would like to see a tutorial on how to use ribbon to make figures or characters to put on clips – I keep seeing princess figured clips around but would love to know how to do it myself.

  2. I would like a tutorial on how to make the large ribbon wreaths that people are making using the mesh-type ribbon. Those are so cute and probably not all that difficult to do! I second the person who posted earlier that they want a tutorial on character bows as well!

  3. I would love to see how to use the bottle caps? There is not too much info out there on how they are attached and how people personalize them! Love your products and your prices!

  4. I love marabou! I’ve made a few headbands using them, but would love to have some other things to create.

  5. I would love to see some tutorials on how to use the feather boas in a different way other than just draping around the neck!
