Daisy Hair Bow Tutorial!

Because I have two girls, I’m an accessory addict!  I just love them matching.  However, even before I had my first daughter (but knew she was a girl), I was making different types of hair bows for her.  This style is a newer design, but I think it is so cute!

First, I take the alligator clip and wrap it with ribbon all the way around it.  This helps with it staying in fine hair (which most little girls have) and it makes it so the silver doesn’t show.

Next, I take three different types of ribbon and cut it into about 6 inch pieces
**you can choose the length, just remember the width of your bow will be about half of the length you cut the ribbon.

Then, you fold the ribbon in half (so you know where the center is) and you put glue across the fold.

Repeat with the other side.

Fold and glue all of your ribbons.

Next, I glued the black ribbons in an x-shape and then the Merry Christmas ribbon and then the red.  I put them on top of each other with the button on top and glue the bottom ribbon to the alligator clip and wahlaaaaa, we have ourselves a bow.

Couple of side notes:

  • You can get all of the supplies at any craft store.
  • You can use all types of ribbon for this bow.
  • Sometimes I use thicker ribbon on the bottom.
  • Play with different designs!
  • Save your extra buttons from clothes!!

    These look GORGEOUS! I just started making bows for my daughter [ive always been “crafty”] and we had family portraits at Olan Mills, and the Photographer Loved my bows, and asked if i made daisy bows. So ive been searching the web for some, and yours are just Darling. 🙂

    Thanks! I’m glad you like them! It is a lot of fun and so easy! You can easily buy them, but why when they are so fun making them and get credit where it’s due! Happy bow making!
