I love winter. I love the snow, sledding, sitting on my couch watching snowflakes fall from the sky while reading a good book and cuddling up under a nice warm blanket…I love it all. However, if only we could figure out a way for the snow to stay off of the roads. Whether you are with me in winter bliss or spending your winter days on the beautiful beaches, today’s fun project with Debra from Housewife Eclectic, is all about lovely snowflakes that no matter where you spend your winter, you will love these cute bows that are fun to make and even more fun to wear. Enjoy!
Hi everyone, I’m Debra from Housewife Eclectic, I typically share recipes, DIY, geeky projects and much more over at my site. Today I am here to show you how to make these fun and easy Snowflake bows. They come together really quick and are perfect for the snowy weather that has finally hit my neck of the woods.
You will need:
- White Grosgrain Ribbon
- A Gem for the center of your snowflake
- Long Needle
- Alligator Clips
- Hot Glue
- Fray Check or a Match
Lay the ribbon on top of each other and then fold the strands in half. Pierce the ribbon at the halfway mark with your threaded needle. Pull the ribbon halfway through the needle.
Leaving the ribbon on the needle, spread the ribbon out until it is even. Fold each piece up and pierce with the ribbon with the needle, creating loops. Continue until all of the loops have been made. Pull the thread through the ribbon and sew through the center of the bow 4 or 5 times until it is completely secure. Tie off the thread. Hot glue your gem to your center and then hot glue the bow to a covered alligator clip.
My daughter absolutely loves this bow and it goes with just about everything, which I love.
How are you dealing with the snow?
