How to Make a Hair Bow Many moms and grandmas have decided that they want to learn how to make a hair bow instead of buying expensive boutique and store bought bows. Once they see how easy it really is (and fun!) to learn this new craft with beautiful ribbon, they are hooked. Beyond that, the cost to get started and the ongoing costs are minimal because supplies like ribbons, glue, and hair clips are very inexpensive. Imagine creating your own hair accessories in the exact style, size, and colors that you want to match any of your favorite little girl’s outfits. You’ll be so happy that you can have a bow for every new pretty shirt and beautiful dress that you purchase. What is better than having a great accessory to match an adorable outfit that really makes it come together perfectly? Hairbows in stores (or even online boutiques) can sell for up to $30 EACH. Wow I’d never want to spend that much money for just some pieces of ribbon, now that I know how to make them. For that same price, you can create at least 5-10 of your own; that sounds much more reasonable to me. Ribbon is often on sale (at 50% off typically) and even available at dollar stores which make hairbows a very inexpensive craft. Also you can try sites like Ebay to find lots of ribbon wholesale if you want to get a whole bunch at one time for pennies on the dollar. Beyond that there are online stores that sell ribbon in wholesale, if you choose to make lots of bows all at once. This would be really great for those that want to sell bows or just make a bunch of matching bows for kids birthday party favors, a whole sports team of girls, or something similar. If you’ve ever wanted to learn how to make a hair bow, now is definitely the time to explore boutique hair bows. Typically spring and summer are the most popular times for hair bows since the ribbon options are just beautiful and very plentiful so now is great to learn how to make a hair bow. Pinks, purples, floral designs, and more are options for beautiful bow making. Beyond that though, don’t forget about the fall and winter for hair accessories because holiday bows are very popular and often times more extravagant and decorated than everyday bows. Wouldn’t you love to make a gorgeous handmade hairbow for your daughter’s first Christmas? Imagine a beautiful green and red boutique layered bow with korker embellishments and some other jewels as decorations. Whatever color the dress and style of outfit she’s wearing for a special day, you’ll be able to create a hairbow that matches perfectly. Just bring the outfit to the craft store with you as you choose the ribbon you want to use as you learn how to make a hair bow. Your older girl will even be able to help choose the embellishments she wants on her special bows, which makes your holiday photos even more special and memorable. There are so many cute button, gems, feathers, and flowers that will be a great way to really make your creations uniquely yours and so beautiful. If that sounds exciting to you, you’ll definitely love this ribbon craft. I bet you can’t wait to start learning how to make a hair bow now! The best thing about bow accessories is that girls are never too young or too old to wear accessories with their outfits once you have learned how to make a hair bow. I’ve seen girls as young as just a day old wearing hair accessories and girls as old as high school teens doing the same. Since there are so many types of bow styles you can really accessorize any type of outfit depending on your girl’s age. I was really surprised to see how many teenagers are wearing small trendy bows lately. Now, for younger girls, if your daughter doesn’t have enough hair yet to attach a clip, simply slide the clip of the bow onto a crochet or nylon headband and have her wear it like that. Then once she gets older and has more hair, she can wear that same bow just clipped onto her hair. The bow really can grow with your daughter because girls of all ages are wearing bows of all sizes. Don’t worry if the bow is too big or too small; it seems that any size is just your own preference. I’ve seen newborns with bows nearly bigger than their head! Since the ribbon is lightweight, it is just a matter of preference for which size hair bow you chose for the age of your daughter. Older girls (even high schoolers) enjoy wearing smaller styles like tuxedo bows and jazzy sequin cheer bows to school and sporting events. That gives you about eighteen years to enjoy hair accessory bows made from ribbon. How exciting! What is your favorite size of bow? Small butterfly bows? Medium sized Korker bows? Large layered boutique bows? It’s so exciting that there is such a large variety of choices you can make when learning this ribbon craft. Are you ready to learn how to make a hair bow?
