DIY: Printed Ribbon Hair Bow


By Blerona

With the cold winter this year in NYC, I’ve begun to dream about the future summer days… and decided to make the cutest summer accessory for the little one’s. So get started on your summer projects by making an adorable printed grosgrain ribbon bow.

Materials Needed:

First step: Sew the two 4.5 Lemon Grass strips together. Be sure they are making a small X when before sewing middle. I call these the leaf pieces because they go at the end of the flower bow.

Step 2: Take one 6″ polka dotted stip and create circle and push a t-pin through.

Step three: Take one 6″ Flower ribbon and create a circle and add it to pile it onto the other polka dot ribbon. Keep doing this until you finish the polka dot and flower ribbon. Be sure to make each circle smaller as you pile them onto the t-pin. (You can do this by cutting an extra 1/2″ after each ribbon piled on.

Step 4: Now sew the piled ribbons together neatly and remove the t-pin. Then sew on the button and the ‘Leaf Ribbon” at the same time, and cut the ends of the ‘Leaf ribbon’.

Step 5: Lastly, attach a hair clip to the back of the flower ribbon, which can be purchased at any craft or drugstore.

    Love this! I wanted to make a bow to match a dress I made for my daughter and this worked great. My one ribbon was thinner though (5/8) so I ended up stacking them on the pin and then arranged them at angles and it gave it a pretty flower look in black, hot pink and zebra print.

    How do you prevent the ribbon from unraveling? Clear finger nail polish?

      You burn the end of the ribbon ever so slightly with a flame or there are tools you can buy at a craft store to burn it. I just hold a lighter to the end of the ribbon back and forth quickly.
