Often asked: How To Make Hair Bows With Ribbon?

How much ribbon is needed to make a bow?

You will need about 4 yards of ribbon for the bow and another piece long enough to fit around your gift package and tie a simple knot. You will also need to have a 4 inch piece of florist wire or a metal twist tie. If you use florist wire, cut it before you start to tie your bow and keep it where you can reach it.

How do you put a bow in a little girl’s hair?

Grab a section of hair and make a ponytail of both sections. Pull the ponytails as high as you can and secure with an elastic band. Now divide the hair into two sections and circle them around the base of the ponytails, repeat on the other side. Secure the buns with pins and attach the bow.
