A Loopy Puff Bow is sure to add some spunk to any outfit!
Not only are Loopy Puff Bows adorable, but they’re super easy to make!
How to Make a Loopy Puff Bow
40″ length 3/8″ American Flag 4th of July Stripes
40″ length 3/8″ Red Solid Grosgrain
40″ length 3/8″ White Solid Grosgrain
40″ length 3/8″ Dark Royal Solid Grosgrain
2 felt circles
Needle and Thread
Hot Glue Gun and Glue Sticks
Wood Burning Tool (optional, but awesome!)
You will need forty 4″ strips of ribbon for this bow.
I had 4 different colors of ribbon, so I cut 10 of each color.
Cut and seal the ends of all 40 pieces of ribbon.
You can seal the ends using your preferred method.
I have found the Creative Wood Burning Tool to be a lifesaver!
I love that you can cut and seal the ends of your ribbon in one simple step.
For projects like this one, using the wood burner saves a lot of time!
After trying out the wood burning tool on a few different surfaces I decided that I liked cutting on glass the best.
This colorful mess I’m cutting on is actually a picture frame.
I placed cardstock with different lengths of ribbon on it behind the glass.
This makes cutting the ribbon a breeze, plus it looks cheery and makes me smile.
Always remember to BE CAREFUL when working with a wood burning tool.
Accidentally touch your skin with it and you’ll have a 3rd degree burn in 2 seconds flat!
After you’ve cut and sealed your 40 ribbons you’re ready to start sewing them together.
Thread your needle with a coordinating color of thread.
Double your thread and secure a knot at the end.
Fold your ribbon in half to make a loop.
Push your needle through the ends of the ribbon and slide the loop down to the knot.
Repeat with the remaining ribbons.
You can string the loops on in a pattern if you’d like or you can string them on at random.
My pattern was red, white, blue, flag, as you can see in the picture below.
This is what it will look like when you’ve added all forty ribbons onto your thread.
At this point you want to pull the thread tight, allowing the ribbons to gather.
Then sew the first loop to the last loop.
Secure with a double knot.
Fluff the poof and shape it how you’d like.
Line your clip with a sealed 4″ ribbon.
Hot glue a felt circle to the under side of the top prong on your clip.
Hot glue the other felt circle to the under side of your loopy puff.
Hot glue the two felt circles together, “sandwiching” the top prong of the clip.
That’s all there is to it, my friends!
I made two Loopy Puff Bows for my All American Girl.
She’s turning heads wherever she goes in her loopy red, white and blue cuteness!
And she couldn’t be happier about it!
Happy crafting friends!
I’m telling you, once you make one bow you’ll want to make one for every outfit in your little lady’s closet!
There is no end to the cuteness you could create with a Loopy Puff Bow!
