How to Make a Tails Down Bow

This step-by-step video shows you how to make a popular tails down bow. I just LOVE how these turn out and know you will too. This is a great hair bow to start with if you are looking to make hair bows for little girls. You can try this style bow with a variety of ribbon widths but I prefer to use at least 1 inch ribbon for this tails down bow.  This Youtube video was created to show you exactly how to make a tails down bow step-by-step.  If you have been searching for instructions on this type of bow, I’m glad you found this page because this video will detail the steps for you.  Watch the video, grab your bow making supplies, and you can get started making hair bows immediately.  I love how simple it is to make this basic bow.  It should be pretty easy for a beginner to pick up but if you are having difficulty, be sure to grab some cheap grosgrain ribbon and practice forming the bow a bunch until you get the hang of it. Once you get it down, you can work with some nicer, more expensive ribbon and make a beautiful bow that is something you can be proud of.
Your little girl will love wearing this bow!  Be sure to use all different types of ribbon when making this bow since it will give you a lot of different options for a beautiful bow.  You can even add some embellishments to add some uniqueness to the hairbow and to personalize it for your special little girl.  Use her favorite colors or to match a favorite outfit and you’ll be sure to have a winner when she sees that you have learned how to make a tails down bow.
