How to Make a Hairbow Videos – Pin It
Twisted Boutique Bow VIDEO: This bow is great and used for a lot of different stacked and layered bows so you will definitely want to learn how to make a hairbow this way. It is a basic bow that can be worn alone or stacked with loops and sprays. This is one of my favorites to make. Just take time to practice getting your twist correct so it looks right when you show off your finished bow. You want it to be perky and not flat.
Easy Hair Bow – Perfect for Teens VIDEO: This is my most popular Youtube video and I’m sure you can see why…it is so easy even teenagers enjoy making this type of hairbow. It’s great for a small and simple bow but can also be made with larger ribbon as well. You don’t have to use grosgrain ribbon like I do, but plan to use a ribbon that is 7/8 inch wide or wider so you have enough ribbon to work with as you glue the creases.
How to Make a Loopy Bow VIDEO: Loopy bows are a lot of fun. They are one bow I really love and was so excited to learn this when I was first taught how to make a hairbow because I used to wear these fun and poofy bows as a kid. Now that I can make them, I just love using all kinds of beautiful ribbons (various colors, patterns, and widths) to make unique loopy bows.
How to Make a Hairbow: Helpful Tips
1 – Use hot glue or E6000 and also sew your bows to get them to stay together well so they will last a long time. 2 – Start with minimal supplies so you don’t get overwhelmed or waste a lot of ribbon. 3 – Practice making loops and bows with an inexpensive ribbon so you can experiment before committing to it. 4 – Learn the basic bows like butterfly, boutique, and pinwheel, then build more bows from there. 5 – Use coupons for craft stores to save a lot on your bow making supplies. It is a very inexpensive craft if you shop wisely.
