As many of you know I love to DIY and make creative things, so when I saw that my cute friends Katie and Savannha had started a Facebook page for their awesome DIY projects I knew that I had to invite them to do a guest post. 🙂 Here is how they make these adorable bows.
-Hot glue or Fabric blue
Start off by finding the perfect fabric for your bow! Once you have it you’re going to cut it into a square. The size of the square depends on your preference of how big you want your bow to be: the more fabric the bigger the bow! Once your fabric is cut you can choose to add lace by hot gluing it across the center of the square.
Place the side of the fabric you want to be the front down, leaving the side you don’t facing upwards. Take all of the edges of your square and fold them over about a ½ to 1 inch and glue them down. Let it set until the glue is completely dry.
Take your fabric and flip it over again so the side you want to show is facing upwards. Take two of the sides and push them together to make the middle of the fabric create a series of folds. Fiddle around with the folds until you are satisfied with it. Glue in between each fold so they stay in place.
Now you need to cut another piece of fabric (or any material that you think will look good, It’s your bow!) about an inch wide and three inches long to go around the entire middle of your bow. Once that’s all ready you need to glue it in place and let it dry. Last but not least you need to glue on some kind of hair clip to the back of the bow. Bobby pins can work but we don’t suggest them. Instead we suggest ones that have a clamp because they are more secure. You can even wear the bow on a collared shirt!
Once the glue is dry your bow is complete! We hope this helped you out! Remember, Keep It Simple, Sweetie.
