Hello Ribbon Retreat Readers! Have I ever told you how much we appreciate you? Well…let me just say how much we truly appreciate you hanging out with us everyday! You are incredible!
I am so excited you are here, because it is my pleasure to introduce a brand new Contributor! Jess from Mommy Makes Things is here with us today sharing some super fun and super festive Halloween Bows. Halloween is literally right around the corner, and I am so excited for Jess to be here with us today wrapping up our holiday projects! Welcome Jess! Enjoy these fun, fun bows!

Hey friends, it’s Jess from mommymakesthings.com! If you love making hairbows and headbands, The Ribbon Retreat has the BEST selection for ribbon out there! With so many options to mix and match, including DIY kits with coordinating ribbon, they’ve made it too easy to make the boutique bows YOURSELF for less! And can I mention FUN!??

In this tutorial, I’m sharing a super easy technique for creating a Stacked Halloween Bow. Check it out and then get yourself some ribbon to practice on at www.theribbonretreat.com!

For this bow, I’ve stacked several different bow styles together. You can find all of these bow tutorials at The Ribbon Retreat HERE, if you need more details. But they are all simple bows that you can master in minutes. And when grouped together they make the cutest bows!

The Pinwheel Bow

Cut 3 ribbons the same size (about 4-6 inches each). Lay 2 of them down in the shape of an “X” and then lay the 3rd one across the middle. Poke some thread through the middle, pinch them all together accordion style and then wrap the thread around and secure with a double knot.

After you’ve made all of these individual bows, make sure you heat seal the ends so they don’t fray. (Click here if you need help!)

Start stacking them on top of each other, starting with the biggest on the bottom and working your way up. You can use thread to secure and wrap around them or glue them together with hot glue. OR both!

For the middle, I take a long piece of ribbon and tie it around the whole stack in the center, making sure to tie the knot on the front of the bow and trim the ends so they blend into the rest of the bow. If you want a flat center, just place the ribbon on top of the front and glue at the back so you don’t have a bulging knot in the back where you will be gluing your clip to.

After some fiddling with pieces to get it sitting just the way you want it, you’re done! If there are pieces you aren’t happy with or there are uneven spots, you can always pinch down in the problem areas and hot glue pieces of ribbon down without any of that showing. Such a great trick for those stubborn pieces! Fingers crossed you don’t have any though, right?

Again, these are such easy bows once you get the hang of it. Be sure to check out all the fun ribbon options from TheRibbonRetreat.com! There are so many other holidays coming up that you can make these for!


Thank you Jess! It is so much fun having you on board and being able to feature you and your incredible talent! These bows are so festive and would look incredible sitting next to cute little pig tales, attached to a headband or holding back your little sweeties hair to showcase her sweet little face! However you or your little girlee wears this bow…it will look incredible and will be the perfect accessory to your holiday attire! For more fabulous projects by this super sweet lady, make sure to visit her at Mommy Makes Things!
