Many children go to schools where they are told what to wear. Uniforms are uncomfortable and it’s hard for a kid to feel like an individual when they’re at school. So one of the best ways of giving them some individuality is a hair bow. They can have a bit of colour in their hair, which can be enough for them to feel like themselves.
Now it’s the holidays, the kids are everywhere and they need stuff to do. Making a holiday hair bow is an amazing way to keep them entertained, encourage their imagination, develop their practical skills, and involve themselves in how they look. Making your own DIY hair bow is a lot of fun. It’s easy and very cheap too, so check out our guide below.
Making a DIY hair bow is one of the cheapest and easiest ways of entertaining the kids this holiday season. Take them shopping or look online for some ribbon that they might like. If you can, give them the choice of what they want, even if you don’t think it will be very nice. Making their own choices will make the activity much more interesting and engaging. You will need maybe 1.5 metres to make several bows. Try a few different thicknesses
Now you have your ribbon, you need to decide what kind of attachment you are going to use. Clips are the easiest option for kids but a hairband, headband, or tie all work wonderfully. Talk to the kids, see what look they would like to go for. However, if they can’t decide, get a few of each.
Next is deciding what kind of bow you want. The easiest for children is the classic bow. It uses the same knot as they use to tie their shoes and it doesn’t require things like glue guns or pins. All you need is a ribbon and an elastic hair tie. First, cut about 6 inches of ribbon and pull it through the hair tie until there are equal lengths on either side.
Next you fold one side over, the left over the right, so they are in a V shape. Then, lift the right piece and pull it through the left one to create a loop. Then pull the loop tight. After that, take both ends and make loops with both. Cross the left over the right and take the left loop under the right one and pull tight. Your holiday hair bow is almost ready. Finally, adjust it to size and get rid of creases and you are ready!
Making your holiday hair bow unique is easy: add a hair bow logo. To make a hair bow logo, draw out what you want to go on your bow and then cut it out. Then, stick it straight onto the bow if you have the right material. However, making a stamp or a sticker will produce much better results.
