  • How to make a hair accessory. Hair Bows - Step 1
    Step 1

    Cut four to five inches of ribbon.

    I made this set for my roomie's daughter, she chose different beads in the end. (;

    Fold ribbon into an oval, overlapping a little in the back, then slide into the center of the bobby pin.

    Push the ribbon up in the center and push the threaded needle through the bottom back of the ribbon close to the bobby pin.

    Step 4

    Wrap the thread around the ribbon and the bobby pin. Before you tie off and cut the thread add your beads or embelishments if they can be secured with the thread as well.

    I wrapped the thread around the ribbon and top of the bobby pin and only needed to poke the needle through the ribbon twice (once to star and second to make the bead sit the dirction I wanted. I tied the thread onto itself at the end. I hope the photo illustrates what I mean about securing/wrapping.

I added a photo of it in my hair for you. There's also a version someone did where they tied a bow and secured it horizontally, that might work better for you.

These are such a cute and simple idea! Your directions were really easy to understand. Thank you for sharing. I hope to be making a bunch of these for gifts and such with the access ribbon I have floating around my room.
