Halloween is right around the corner and we all know that means candy! My daughter loves Candy Corn so these pigtail candy corn hair-bows I made were perfect for her and will look adorable through the fall!
Cut two 4" pieces of each of your 7/8" ribbons. Heat seal the ribbon ends
Fold the ends of your ribbon together to form a circle.
Flatten out your circle making sure the fold is in the center.
Crease the center of your bow - wrap the center with your upholstery thread and tie off the thread.
Repeat the above steps with your orange ribbon.
Repeat the above steps with your yellow ribbon.
You now have 3 bows - 1 of each color.
Start with the white bow on top, followed by the orange. Put a dab of hot glue on the bottom center of the white bow, smash your orange bow up against the white bow. Hold the bows together until the glue dries. You can also tie your thread around the center to pull tightly together as well.
Put a dab of hot glue on the bottom center of the orange bow, smash your yellow bow up against the orange bow. Hold the bows together until the glue dries or tie another string around the center to hold in place until dry.
Make sure your centers are lined up.
Flip your bow over, hot glue your 3/8" yellow ribbon to the back.
Wrap the yellow ribbon around the front of the bow, covering the thread wrapped centers of each bow.
Cut your ribbon, heat seal the end and glue it down over top of the piece that is already glued there.
Use your matching 3/8" ribbon to line your alligator clip.
Glue your lined clip to the back center of your bow.
Repeat the above steps with your other set of ribbons. Make sure when you line up your bows that both sets are in the same order - yellow, orange, white.
I just love the way these fall candy corn hair-bows turned out! They were so easy to make! I see myself making some of these in Christmas colors soon!
