Here’s a tutorial for these EASY and quick felt hair bows.  They are so cute!  I’m willing to bet you fall in love with how easy and fast they are to make.  They are a great way to add color and fun to a girl’s shoebox gift!  They would also be adorable to include in all your children’s Christmas stockings, or even as a birthday party favor!

Felt (like this HERE at Amazon)
Scissors or rotary cutter
Hot glue gun or needle and thread


Cut three strips of felt in the following sizes: 6″x1″, 4″x1″, and 1/2″x2″  (You’ll probably notice my felt isn’t cut extremely even or exact, and that’s okay because this project is very forgiving.  Yet another reason to love it!  Just eyeball it and give try to get straight cuts.)

Take the 6 inch piece of felt and find the center.  Fold the two ends into the center and glue in place or tack with a few stitches.

Next, use your fingers to pinch this same piece of felt in the center and glue or tack in position with a quick stitch.  I used glue because it’s fast, but your do have to be careful with it.  It can leave unsightly strings or drops if you’re not cautious.

Next adhere this bow to the 4″ piece of felt.  Try to center it.  Then cut around the bow on the top and bottom.  Don’t worry about being real even with your cuts.  You basically just want the back felt above and below the main bow to disappear.  No one will ever know if your cuts are perfect.  Then, cut out triangles on the end to make it look like a ribbon.  These do need to be pretty accurate, so take your time with these.  See pictures below, as I’m horrible at describing this step.

Finally, tack of glue the small strip of felt around the center to complete the bow.  The felt hair bow can easily be attached to a barrette, bobby pin, or hair tie.

Here is a whole bag of hair clips at Amazon.
