Readers ask: How To Make Ribbon Hair Bows?

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?

Brush your hair and make a simple low sitting ponytail and secure with an elastic band. Now twist the hair around the base of the ponytail several times until all the hair is gathered around it. Place the bow as you like and loosen some hair strands from the bun to create a casual look.
