Lovely (and very easy!) Bows

Okay so yesterday, my wonderful sister Kassi was making felt flower clips for hair accessories and I (Kayli) decided that maybe there was a way to make bows too… So after a little experimenting I discovered a way! I took a standard sheet of black felt and cut out a rectangle using a ruler and highlighter, about five inches long. You can make it as wide as you want, depending on how big of a bow you want 🙂

Then I pinched it together in the middle and sewed through a few times, no special way, just enough to keep it together…

Then I cut out another small rectangle of felt, wrapped it around the center and hot glued it in place. Later we made more and added buttons, and even hardware to make them more unique and a little trendier. We just used hot glue again, no big process, just add what you like.

After I had the bow all put together, I hot glued a black hair barrett to the back in the middle just like this…

And there you have it! A classic (VERY easy to make) bow for your hair! You can wear them just about anywhere. Glitter felt, or adding a little bling of your own would make for a super cute Holiday accessory (or gift!) Just sayin’!

P.S. These would make a super cheap, super easy stocking stuffer for Christmas!!!

P.P.S. We linked this fun craft to these linky parties!! Check them out and link up your own ideas!!!
