You Can Make Hair Bows For Girls

Hair bows for girls are really popular and easy to make. There are so many options, but they are either expensive or the wrong color.

Making them is a much better option, but where do you start?

Hair bows are ribbon creations that come in hundreds and thousands of awesome styles, patterns, and colors.

Anybody can make them you must realize though that on the first few tries they may not look very good, that's normal just stick with it and you will succeed.

With some ribbon, a hair clip and some tools you can have your own homemade hair bows for your girls in no time.

Supplies To Make Hair Bows For Girls

Some supplies you will need are:

Ribbon--Looking at all the racks of ribbon might inspire you or scare you. The best ribbon for making hair bows is grosgrain ribbon. It has a tighter weave and is very durable and easy to work with and flexible. It comes in many styles and colors and sizes.

Clips--There are two types of clips that work for hair bows snap clips which snap open when you bend them, these are great for simple bows and work great for fine hair. Alligator clips open and shut when you squeeze the end and have teeth to help hold thicker hair.

Flowers --These are a great addition to any bow. You just pop them off the stem and glue them on the bow. Other things to think about gluing on the bow are buttons, and small rhinestones.

Hot Glue Gun --Use high temp/high heat hot glue gun and glue sticks, it works better then the regular glue. This is the easiest way to hold your bow together and add your extras to it, also it doesn't show once it's dry. You have to be careful not to melt the ribbon. You want to make sure you get a glue that dries quickly so it will hold your bow in place. If you get glue on a piece of ribbon where it shouldn't be just pop it in the freezer for a few minutes and it will peel right off.

Scissors-- A good pair that cut well.

Lighter--To seal the ends.

Ruler--To measure the length of ribbon.

Stick Pins--To hold the bow until you fasten it permanently.
