Reindeer Hair Bow

I am pretty sure I can almost hear those jingle bells ringing as Santa prepares his sleigh and his friendly reindeer to make that long trip around the world on Christmas Eve. I am sure his reindeer are dancing and prancing as they get ready to pull that sleigh and bring smiles to children everywhere. I too am dancing and prancing around with excitement, but mine is for this sweet little bow Jess from Mommy Makes Things is sharing with us today. This little Reindeer Hair Bow is beyond cute and absolutely perfect for all of your Christmas festivities. Enjoy!

Here comes another fun bow Tutorial with The Ribbon Retreat!! It’s getting so close to Christmas but it’s never too late for an easy holiday bow! And kids will absolutely LOVE this character bow! Instead of Rudolph, we decided to make little Rudolph a “girlfriend” so that this darling combination of pink and brown will match everyday outfits without it needing to be a “holiday outfit”! You can sneak in your festivity without even buying new clothes!
Major win!

So here’s how she’s put together:

First, pick out some fun polka dot ribbon from The Ribbon Retreat and ANXIOUSLY wait for it to arrive. I’ll admit, I LOVE this part!

I started with a simple figure 8 twist and placed hot glue in the middle to adhere the ends together.

Make another figure 8 and hot glue them on top of each other. Yes, I’m skipping the needle and thread this time…totally saving on time!

Then I cut 3 strips of ribbon, approximately 6 inches long.

Then loop strips into circles and hot glue them together. Make sure they are the same size so your reindeer face isn’t lopsided.

Next, layer them on top of each other and glue.

Then comes the fun! I cut out some antlers with brown felt and glued them behind her ears. Then glue on some googly eyes & a pom pom nose. She’s officially coming to life!

All you have left is to glue her to the ribbon and then add a darling bow so she’s nice and girly. And, she’s officially ready to be shown off! My girls were so excited about this bow that they had to help with the entire process. They loved helping glue the eyes and nose on the most! So don’t be afraid to include the little ones on this one…they will be even more excited to parade it around in their hair!

    If I had diabetes, I’d be needing extra insulin because of the overwhelming sweetness of this adorable reindeer!! She’d be cute enough as shown in the last pic, but with all of her pink frilliness, she’s just precious! And I love the brooch/bag embellishment suggestions.

    Thanks for sharing, Jess, and Merry Christmas to you and your family! xoxo
