How to Make Blingin’ Hair Bows for Girls

Just like women can never have too many shoes, little girls can never have too many hair accessories. Girls need several to match different outfits, and it seems like the clips are always getting misplaced. Today I want to share my newest hair bow creation – it’s BLINGIN’!

I was given an awesome stash of Bling on a Roll from Darice that was perfect for this project. 

This bling is fabulous! It comes is all different colors and widths and is very easy to use. You can simply cut off the length you need and glue to attach. For these bows I used the following lengths:

Here’s how to make a blingin’ bow:

(1) Make the long strip into a loop and hot glue.

(2) Pinch the middle of the bow together and glue (it’s okay if it’s messy, it will be covered up!)

(3) Wrap the smaller length of bling around the middle and glue.

(4) See how the top bow is a little flat? I used my finger to poof up the bow a little on each side (see step 3) and added a tiny bit of glue to hold it in place. Either bow would be cute, but I like the puffed-up bow the best!

Finally, attach an alligator clip to the back of your bow with (more) hot glue! I reeeeallly like hot glue!

I love how these turned out and so does my daughter! 

This cute girl got a lot of compliments on her new bow!

I had to try the wider width Bling and make a GIANT bow. 
Who wouldn’t love to get a glam gift like this?
