How to Make Hair Bows

How to Make Hair Bows

Posted on 13. Nov, 2009 by Trish in Tutorial

My wonderful neighbor came over yesterday asking if she could borrow a hairbow for their family pictures on Sat because my hair bows “are so much cuter” than hers.


I offered to make her one that matched the outfit she was wearing and offered to teach her how to make them too because they are so easy.  So I’ve had hairbows on my mind yesterday and today and thought I’d share some great youtube videos where I learned how to make hairbows.

This first one is a boutique style hairbow which is great for layering and making more of a poofy bow.  Super popular right now.

This next one is how to make a pinwheel bow, which is great if I want a flatter bow. I like to tie a knot and secure it on the middle for these.

I do make the pinwheels slightly different. Instead of using a needle and thread, I use the salon clip to clip it down the middle, and then use the embroidery thread to wrap around and tie like it shows in the boutique bow video. It works wonderfully! I used to try to make my bows without the salon clip, but I decided to finally buy some, and I am so glad I did! I highly recommend them.

I hope this helps some of you learn how to make bows. I love to make them to match all my daughter’s outfits, and they are so easy!

    You can get the headbands and other needed items for CHEAP on Ebay.. I have a set of 32 crochet headbands on the way to me and it only cost me 7.00.
