This is a fun and easy tutorial that will give you an adorable little felt bow as a product. This particular tutorial is how to make a bow for your hair but you could also add these bows to fun fashion projects,  add them to home decor projects or make all sorts of accessories like broaches or earnings.

This is an easy project that really doesn’t cost much or take many supplies making it a great craft to do with kids or just an easy project for yourself.

The supplies you need are:

1. Wool felt Squares in any color you desire.  You can use other types of felt squares or fabric but I’ve found wool felt looks the best.

2. Scissors

3.  Hot glue gun and glue sticks

4. Hair tie or clip (optional)

In the photo above I have already cut the felt into the shapes needed for a bow. These are the three basic shapes need for any bow but you can cut them various ways to get different looks. I would recommend playing around with your shapes with paper first to make sure your getting the desired look.

Step 1:

Take your hot glue gun and your main bow piece and fold half to the middle and tack with a dab of hot glue.

Step 2:

This step is basically the same as the first just repeated with the other side.

Step 3:

After you have the main part of the bow tacked together take you felt piece that will be the ends of the bow and tack them to the center of the back of the bow with a dab of hot glue.

You now should have something that looks like this:

Step 4:

Now flip your bow over to make sure the center is in the middle and where you want it.

Then flip back over and add a dab of hot glue to attach the center.

If you desire you can add a hair tie or clip or you can just seal the other side and have a cute bow. Here’s how I added a Hair tie to make a cute hair piece:

Now your all finished! You can add other embellishments like cute vintage buttons or whatever you hearts desire. Make a million of them for you and your friends!

Happy Sewing
