Cheerleading Hair Bows

Cheer bows are very popular and lots of fun for teenagers to help make for their team spirit days and game days.  I just love the cheerleading hair bows with lots of long tails like this one pictured above.  The tails will flip up and down as the cheerleader moves which makes it really fun.  You can also create sequin cheer bows if you want something with shorter tails and more glitz!

Any age girl can wear these type of bows and it doesn’t just have to be if they are cheering.  Even for Superbowl Sunday or a Monday night football game, these bows would be great.  Create a cheer bow in your favorite team colors.  If you do an online search you can even find NFL team logos on ribbon to really make a spectacular bow.  Just be sure not to sell any licensed ribbon; although you can certainly make it and use it yourself or for your own girls or as a gift.  I think these bows would make great gifts for cheerleaders to be or a teen that is currently cheering.

These bows take a bit more ribbon than a typical bow because you’ll most likely have long tails.  To keep the costs down, be sure to check out the dollar ribbon bins which most craft stores like Michael’s have towards the front of the store.  Or you can always wait until the ribbon goes on 50% sale at Hobby Lobby which is another place to get cheap, good quality ribbon.  Otherwise, you don’t have to make all the ribbon tails very long.  You can make them different lengths or make them all much shorter.  I like to have the ribbons extend just below the length of the girl’s hair when in a pony tail so there is some room for the cheerleading hair bow to really be showed off!
