Easter Loopy BowContributor post by Danielle at Korker Krazy
Easter is just around the corner and Easter Egg bows are a must!! Today I'm going to show you how to make this adorable Easter Loopy bow using HairBow Center's gorgeous 3/8" Easter Egg ribbon.
3/8" Grosgrain ribbon: Easter Egg Print, Turquoise Swiss Dots, Apple Swiss Dots, Yellow Swiss Dots, Hot Pink Swiss Dots and Purple Swiss Dots.
Needle & Thread
Hot Glue Gun & Glue
Step 1: Cut 10 3" pieces of each print. Heat seal your ends if you are not using a wood burner to cut the pieces.
Step 2: Thread your needle with a large knot at the end. Fold your first ribbon in half and thread it through your needle.
Step 3: Decide on your pattern and start adding each piece onto your thread. Make sure you have a big knot at the end so your pieces don't fall off.
Step 4: Continue adding each piece onto the thread. You will start to see a flower like shape.
Step 6: Find the first piece you added and thread your needle through it. Pull the two ends together - This step is important to achieve the round look. Tie your thread a few times and clip the excess.
Step 7: Adjust your bow to the shape you want, some loops may be pressing against each other. I try to pull my loops all apart to make a fluffy look. Spray your finished bow with stiffen spray/starch and allow it to dry.
Step 8: When your bow is dry it's time to add your felt circle. Hot glue your felt circle to the bottom of your bow.
Step 9: Glue your alligator clip to the felt circle.
You're all finished!! How cute are these? I think I'm going to make another and have my niece wear them as pigtails! I'd love to see what other color combinations you can come up with for this bow!
