I absolutely love wearing hair bows and wear them almost every day (maybe that’s why people tend to think I’m younger than I actually am ;). I have had trouble finding bows I like in stores, and when I do find them, they’re often pretty expensive. I found a tutorial of how to make bows out of felt. It’s super simple and they’re so cute!
The first thing you do is cut a rounded rectangle out of felt and a smaller thinner strip of felt (either the same color or a different color).
Next, pinch the rectangle in the middle.
Take your smaller strip of felt and wrap it around the pinched rectangle. Take some hot glue and glue the strip around the rectangle.
I’ve found the easiest way to make these into clips is to use one of these metal saw-tooth thingies and just slip it between the bow and the strip.
I want to make these in all sorts of colors and for all different seasons!
I found this tutorial at Ruffles and Stuff. She has a tutorial for another type of bow made of felt as well that I haven’t tried yet.
