Over the weekend I decided to jump on YouTube (I have no idea what drove me to do such a thing) and search “hairbows” to see what I could learn about how to make such accessories for the girls as they enter kindergarten. (?!?!?)
I found several tutorials, but one lady who makes quite a few really good ones calls herself ‘Mommy Crafts A lot” was one of the best. I tried my hand at it and here are the results. I think I’ll make a few more and do a tutorial of my own here on the blog for you so you don’t have to go search around the internet, but for now, here are some pictures of what I made.
I’ll just preface these photos by saying that I used what I had on hand and tried to come up with a theme. The bow KD is wearing is kind of the “primary colors” with a big fluorescent yellow ribbon as the large base bow (all I had for 1.5”) and I tried to tie it all in with the bow that wrapped around the center, which was a white one with polka dots in the colors of a Twister game. For Easy Mac, the top bow was a floral one, and the large base bow is a matching pink bow (the only other large 1.5” ribbon I had) and I matched everything else up accordingly. I have a lot of ribbon, but I guess not as much as Mommy Crafts A lot!
I’ll tell you that I think these are adorable. And if I think they’re adorable, I’ll leave it to your imagination what Shaun’s reaction was. Making the bows was TOTALLY WORTH IT right there.
|The bows on the left are Easy Mac's and the bows on the right are KD's|
|To give you an idea of size, it's about 6" across and 4" top-to-bottom|
|This is a smaller version of that base bow, which is cute on its own, called a 'boutique bow'|
|Easy Mac picked out the ribbon. It's really pretty.|
