How to Make Hair Bows

  1. Needle and Thread
  2. Ribbon
  3. Hair clips or barrettes
  4. Decorative piece (optional)
  5. Glue Gun


  1. Take the ribbon and fold it over, making a figure 8.  Do this process three times.  Use a push pin and push it through the center of the bow.  Cut off the excess when you are done making the hair bow.  Repeat this process to make another hair bow.
  2. Using thread (make sure it's knotted), start at the back of the bow and sew the two bows together.  Make sure the thread is tight.  Finish in the back of the bow.  Tie a knot in the back of the bow two or three times.  Make sure the knots are secure on the back of the bow.
  3. Put a decoration in the middle to stylize the bow -- use the glue gun to secure the decoration.
  4. Put some glue on the barrette or clip.  Take the clip and place it on the back of the bow.  Push down to secure the barrette or clip.  Hold it until it cools. 
  5. After the glue has cooled, put the bow in your hair!  You're now ready to show off your new bow!
Follow these steps on how to make hair bows, and you'll have a hair accessory that you can proudly display.  You can make as many hair bows as you want.  Plus, you get bragging rights because you made them instead of buying them!
