Have you been wondering how to make a hairbow? Well, here is a simple tutorial on how to do this!


Here is what you will need:

1: 1 1/2″ Ribbon, Cut (2) 8″ pieces

2: 3/8″ Ribbon, Cut (1) 4-5″ piece

3: Heat Sealer (a lighter or candle works great)

4: Glue Gun (I use a *high temperature* glue gun)

5: Hair Clip (of your choice and enough 3/8″ ribbon to cover it)


Step 1

Ok! Ready? Now that you got all the needed materials ready, go ahead and heat seal the ends of the ribbon with your lighter or candle.3

Step 2

Once you have done that, take the (2) 8” inch pieces of ribbon and make a crease in the middle by folding them in half.


Step 3

Unfold the ribbon. Now take your hot glue gun and put a strip of glue on each side of the crease.6

Step 4

Once you have put a strip of glue on each side of the crease, fold each side and meet them in the middle. Don’t overlap the ends.


Do the same steps above for the other 8” piece of ribbon.


Step 5

Now make a crease in the middle of the folded ribbon and put a dot of hot glue. Once you have done that, fold the crease and hold until the glue sets.


Step 6

Now fold the crease back on itself and put (2) dots of hot glue on the other side of the crease.


You will now want to do the same thing for the other piece of ribbon so you have two bows that look like this!


Step 7

Now put a dot of glue on top of the middle for one of the bows.


Step 8

Once you have done that, go ahead and take the other bow and place it on top, like so.


Now onto prepping the clip! Go ahead and cut your 3/8” ribbon so it fits on top of the clip with a little extra length so you can glue the edges underneath the clip.


Step 9

Once you cut the ribbon to the correct length, now glue it onto the top of your clip and glue the edges of the ribbon underneath the clip edges.


Step 10

Now take your other piece of 3/8″ ribbon and glue one edge to the back of the bow.


Step 11

Take the clip, put some glue on it and then press it onto the middle and edge of the bow.


Step 12

Once you have done that, take the rest of the ribbon, wrap it around the middle and push it through the clip.


Step 13

Put another dollop of glue underneath the ribbon on the other side of the bow to secure the clip even more.


Step 14

Wrap the ribbon around once more and put another dot of glue to secure the ribbon.


Thee End!

There you have it! A simple, but cute bow you can easily make!
