6 Ways with… Hair Clips: Bows

This is the next in our series of hair clips and I’m absolutely in love with them. Aren’t they the cutest? And like the other projects they take very little effort to make. I’ve been wearing them all week long, when they are not in my hair they are clipped to my winter jacket, brightening up the drab weather. For these I used regular sized hair clips.

To Make:

  1. Cut 2 pieces of felt – both 2 cms thick, one 12cm long and one 4cm long
  2. Take your big piece of felt – fold it to make the main bow (see below left) and secure in place with a pin. Sew to fully secure
  3. Using you small piece of felt wrap it around the centre of your bow and sew in place. Trim any extra felt
  4. Sew your bow onto your pre-covered hair clip

Finally puff up your bow a little and you’re set. It couldn’t be simpler. Good luck!
