So skip the trip to Claire’s or a different boutique and make these hair bows yourself!

DIY Hair Bow 

You will need:

  • Two colors felt (or stiff fabric) of choice
  • Scissors
  • Two pins
  • Sewing needle
  • Hairband
  • Thread

Instructions:

Cut out a rectangle in one of the felt colors of choice. This will become the body of your bow.

Cut out a skinny strip of the other felt, slightly taller than the length of your rectangle.

Cut out two very shallow V’s, one at the bottom of the rectangle and one at the top

Pinch together the points/vertices of the two V’s together with your fingers.

Using the two pins, pin the pinch in place.

Thread your needle and sew the pinch in place. Remove the holding pins.

Wrap your skinny piece of fabric around the middle so that the stitches are covered up. Sew the strip in place.

Take your hairband and place it on the bow. Sew the hairband to the back of the bow.
