Easy Holiday Hair Bows

Easy Holiday Hair Bows - The Ribbon Retreat Blog
Can you believe that there are only 5 more Fridays, including today, before Christmas? Whatttt? Are your hands tiring from all of the Christmas crafts you have been busily creating? Phew! I hope not, because today I am going to show you how to create a fabulous Christmas hair bow that is ooooohhhhh so very cute! I am pretty sure this is my favorite holiday bow as of yet! It is super easy AND, the best part, I made both bows with scrap ribbon I had left over from 4th of July and last year’s Christmas crafts….ssssshhhhh, don’t tell. Haha!

Are you ready to get started? All you need is different widths and designs of red, white and green ribbon and you are set? However, if you don’t have any Christmas ribbon laying around, any ribbon will do because believe me…you are going to want to make these fun bows for every holiday and season and to match multiple outfits. They are that cute and that easy peasy!

Side note…The Ribbon Retreat has the most amazing grabber bags EVER! You could make so many, many fun bows with one grabber bag. It is always a surprise as to what colors, widths, and designs of ribbon you are going to get! But, I guarantee that you will get our high quality ribbon that you are going to LOVE! I didn’t use a grabber bag for these particular bows, because I had leftover ribbon from spools that I have used for other fun projects!

Determine the size of bow you are going to make. I wanted a really big statement bow, so I cut my piece of ribbon long. You can always trim it down! You will fold this piece in thirds!

Fold ribbon in thirds by bringing both sides in at equal amounts.

Fold ribbon in half and crease with fingernail to determine center.

Insert needle through center point and with a knot at the end of the thread, pull needle and thread all the way through until the knot is tight against the ribbon.

Fold ribbon accordion style with fingers.
Wrap thread around center of bow and pull tight, tight, tight…but be careful not to break your thread.

Make a couple of stitches in the back and tie off.

Wahoo! One layer done!

Repeat the above steps with your remaining ribbon. You can make as many layers as you want.

I continued to make each layer a little smaller than the last to give a nice layered look.

Wrap ribbon around all layers (remember to pull tight), take a few stitches in the back to ensure all layers are secure. Tie off.

Wrap a small piece of ribbon around the center of the bow and hot glue!

To add a little festive touch to my bow, I used one piece of Korker Ribbon cut into small pieces and created a miniature Korker Bow to finish off my Holiday Hair Bow!

What do you think? Super cute and super easy!

You can now, attach your fun bow to a headband or clip. For this bow, I choose to attach my big bow to a headband.

I simply cut two sides off of a couple of felt circles and hot glued one to the back of my bow.

I hot glued my headband to the felt circle and topped the headband with my remaining felt circle. I wanted my bow to be front facing but have fun with your headband and bow and glue them together however you desire!

I LOVE!!!

To make the second bow, I followed the exact same steps above. However, I wanted this bow to be a little bit smaller so I could attach it to a clip instead so I cut smaller pieces of ribbon and used a smaller width for each layer.
