Handmade Simple and Cute Hair Bows!
A friend of mine showed me how to make these cute and simple hair bows out of satin ribbons. Once I knew how to make'em I couldn't stop, I started making satin ribbon hair bows for my sisters, friends and myself! I even sold so many. Anyways I'm really excited to show you guys how I made'em, hope the tutorial is helpful :)

  • How to make a ribbon hair bow. Satin Ribbon Hair Bow - Step 1
    Step 1

    Cut out 2 pieces of satin ribbon, one for the bow and the other one for the middle.
    The satin ribbon I used was 2 inches in width and 8 inches in length, but you can cut the ribbon into any length you want.
    The satin ribbon piece for the middle would be the same for any length.

    When the glue dries, hold the glued satin ribbon as shown in the picture, placing the glued area in the middle,
    Create small folds to make the bow,
    Start folding it from any one side and press the middle of the bow.
    Use a small amount of thread for tying a knot in the middle, so that the small folds don't come off.

    Step 6

    The blank hair clip I used had small holes on both sides, so I used thread and needle,
    I placed the blank hair clip right below the bow,
    Brought the needle (along with the thread) through the hole, pulled the thread all the way through the satin ribbon and tied a knot,
    Did the same for the other hole.
    You can also glue the bow on a blank clip.

    Done! Use bright colored satin ribbon and make as many as you want :)
