Making hair bows is a lot of fun and it doesn’t need to be overwhelming if you start with the easy to create bows first.  Here is a basic bow you can create and use later on to add to your stacked and layered bows with sprays and loops to make it even more jazzy and unique.  Practice working with your grosgrain ribbon until you have a hairbow you are proud of.

How to Make a Hair Bow Easy

When you start a new craft such as learning how to make a hair bow, you want to be sure to start off easy so you will enjoy it! The video instructions above show a hairbow you can make simply and with minimal supplies you can try it out without getting frustrated at complex directions and without spending a lot on supplies. This is one of the most basic bows you can make, then later you can get into more advanced hair accessory designs with lots of layers and embellishments. Sometimes though, the simple accessories are great because they can be worn daily and with many outfit options for your little girl to get a lot of use out of her bow.  When I first learn how to make a hair bow that is new to me, I’ll cut some ribbon off the roll (about 2 feet) and play with it while I watch the video until I get the loops perked up just right and the crossing of the ribbon perfectly.  This gives me some time to play with it before I finish the creation and I get a chance to practice.  If you want to practice with ribbon, head over to the dollar bin or even a dollar store and you’ll be able to work with some grosgrain practicing without spending more than just a dollar on it.

How to Make a Hair Bow: Supplies Needed

If you want to learn how to make a bow out of ribbon, of course you’ll need some grosgrain ribbon, but there are a couple other supplies you need to grab too!

If you live in the US, you might want to try Hobby Lobby, Joann Fabrics, and Michael’s for supplies. Those are my three favorite places because they are convenient to where I live, have great sales, and typically have coupons to save on items that are not on sale. I just go and stock up when their supplies (especially ribbon!) are 50% off because it saves me a lot and I’m able to get a bunch of ribbons at the same time so it’s easier to match up the ones I want to use together to make a boutique hair bow.

So besides the ribbon for your bow you also might want to grab some embellishments like I used in the photo below (Spare Parts brand flowers parts and some jewels or gems).  Be sure to use high temp hot glue and glue gun, have some craft wire or thick thread available too.  And of course a good pair of scissors.  That’s it!  All you need to make beautiful bows can be found at a craft store and you can get them for less than $10 to get started.
