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 5: Finish adding all 50 pieces onto your thread. Your bow may look a little wild at this point, that’s okay. We will straighten it out soon.

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!
