Supplies Needed:
7/8" and 3/8" White Grosgrain Ribbon
1/4" Grosgrain Ribbon - Orange
Hot Glue Gun & Glue
Sharpie Marker
Small Rhinestone
Upholstery Thread
Scissors
Lighter


DSCN5783


Cut three pieces of your 7/8" White ribbon - Two pieces at 8" and one piece at 2". Heat seal your ribbon ends with your lighter.


DSCN5784


Fold the ends of your ribbon together to form a circle. You can add a small dab of hot glue to hold the ends together - but don't use too much!


DSCN5785


Flatten out your circle, make sure the glued piece is in the center of the bow.


DSCN5786


Crease and fold the center of your bow, wrap your upholstery thread around the center and tie it off.


DSCN5787


Repeat the same steps for your second bow but after tying off the bow leave your thread attached.


DSCN5788


Put a small amount of glue right below the center of your first bow, press your second bow up against it. Hold the two bows together until the glue dries. Wrap the thread around the center of the bows several times and tie it off.


DSCN5789


Wrap the center of your bow. Take a piece of your 7/8" white ribbon and glue it down to the back center of the bow.


DSCN5790


Wrap the ribbon around the front of the bow and around to the back. Cut the ribbon, heat seal the end and glue it down to the back of the bow.


DSCN5791


Now your bow is finished, we are going to create our ghost.


DSCN5792


Take your 2" piece of ribbon, fold it in half long ways. Use your scissors to cut one end of the ribbon - Start at the open side and cut up to the top. This is your ghost body so you want to make sure it is round.


DSCN5793


Use your lighter to heat seal the round part of your ghost body.


DSCN5794


Draw your ghost face using your sharpie marker.


DSCN5798


Cut a 4" piece of your 1/4" orange ribbon. Heat seal the ribbon ends.


DSCN5799


Loop the right side of your ribbon over, use a small dab of glue to glue your loop down.


DSCN5800

Loop the left side of your ribbon over and glue it down.


DSCN5801


Add a small rhinestone to the center of your bow. I used this small black star I had but you can use whatever you would like.


DSCN5802


Add your bow to the top of your ghost head.


DSCN5803


I decided my ghost was too long - I folded the bottom up and glued it to the back of the ghost.


DSCN5804


Add your ghost body to your bow.


DSCN5805


Add your matching lined clip to the back of your bow.


DSCN5806


My bow had lost it's shape while adding the different pieces to it. To fluff it back up I gently pushed on the ends of the loops. To make your bow stay like this spray it with hairspray or stiffener spray.


Your Halloween ghost hair-bow is all finished and definitely boo-tiful!
