To make a Big Christmas Hair Bow you will need:
-1 green ribbon 28 inches long and 2 inches wide (I used this one)
-1 red/white ribbon 28 inches long and 1.5 inches wide (similar)
-1 red ribbon 6 inches long, 7/8 inch wide (similar)
- French barrette (similar)You could also use an alligator clip or pony tail elastic.
- Thread & needle
- Sewing machine (If you don't have one, I have modifications in the directions below!)
- Glue gun
1. Layer the two long ribbons on top of each other and run a straight stitch down the middle using your sewing machine. (If you don't have one, you can hand-stitch or use hot glue.)
2. Fold and snip the ends of the ribbons. You can use a lighter to seal the ribbon so it won't fray. Or use a product like "Fray Check".
3. Fold the ribbon over to create a bow shape as shown.
4. Secure the ribbon in place with 3-5 stitches in the middle. (Do not cut off the thread yet.)
5. Pinch the center of the ribbon and use the thread to wrap around the middle. This will hold the 'pinch' in place. Tie a knot in the thread and now you can snip off the excess.
6. Turn the bow over. Use the small piece of red ribbon to cover the thread in the center. I like to tie a knot in the ribbon for the center. A small dot of hot glue will hold this ribbon in place.
7. Use hot glue to attach the clip to the back. Wrap the ribbon around the clip and secure with hot glue. Snip off any excess of the red ribbon.
And you are done! This bow makes a great gift and is the perfect hair accessory for all those holiday parties and photos.
