|This bow looks way more complicated than it actually is.|
My daughter Zara loves hair bows like I love earrings. She's so my girl. She's very particular about what she likes in a hair bow. It needs to be smallish and cute but not too cutesy and absolutely nothing big and garish. It's always worn on the right side. Only one at a time. Any deviations are not tolerated. She's three and the girl knows what she likes. She needed a navy blue hair clip, so I whipped this little one up. It's Super Simple, like most of the hair clips I make for her.
- Covered hair clip base
- Ribbon - three 4" pieces & one 1 1/2" piece
- Hot glue gun & glue stick
Use a dot of glue to secure the ends of the 4" ribbons into loops.
Use another dot of glue to glue the center of one loop together, making a sort of sideways figure eight.
|Make a figure eight.|
Slip the squashed loop into a loop diagonally and secure with glue. Glue the top of loop down in the center.
|Layer the loops.|
Add the third loop.
|The three loops glued together.|
Wrap the small section of ribbon around the center and attach it to the back with yet more glue. Glue the finished bow onto the covered hair clip base.
|Add the center and glue the bow to the base.|
Zara loved it! Yay!
|The smile on her face says it all. Thank goodness!|
