With Halloween getting closer I thought I’d better get crackalackin’ and whip up some cute festive bows for my girls! Every day is a day to celebrate with little girls, but the holidays are especially fun to dress them up.
The Ribbon Retreat offers a variety of cute Halloween ribbons.
There are so many fun choices that the hardest part is picking your favorite!
This bow is fun and super easy to make!
The size of your ribbon (length and width) will determine the size of your circle.
For example, my largest ribbon was 36″ in length.
My medium ribbon circle was 18″ long,
and my small ribbon circle was 12″ long.
To start out cut your largest ribbon to the desired length. The length of my ribbon is 36″.
Seal the ends of the ribbon with your preferred method.
Thread your needle and start sewing your ribbon with a simple running stitch.
The ribbon will begin to gather as you sew it.
When you reach the end of your ribbon pull the thread tight and gather the ribbon into a circle. Secure with a knot.
Sew the end of your ribbon to the beginning of your ribbon. Secure with a knot in the back.
Ah, so pretty!
Continue making ribbon circles. I made 3 total.
Line your clip with ribbon. Using hot glue, attach a felt circle to the top of your clip.
Hot glue the largest ribbon circle onto the felt circle. Press and hold to secure.
You could easily sew the 3 ribbon circles together but I chose to glue them.
Glue the medium sized ribbon circle onto the large ribbon circle.
Top with the smallest ribbon circle.
Add a button in the center for a finishing touch.
Does it need another button?
I think so!
If you think it looks cute now, just look how cute it is on!
The bow is adorable attached to a headband! It would look cute on a scarf or bag or hat, as well.
Ok, she’s done now!
This bow would look cute in a variety of colors and patterns.
There are lots of possibilities.
Just have fun with it!
Happy bow making!
