How To Make A Pinwheel Bow

Thursday, March 07, 2013

Pinwheel hair bows are always a hit, from school girls to girlie-girls! For me, they bring to mind being young and carefree, riding ferris wheels, eating cotton candy and laughing together with your best friend... Yes all of that from a simple hair bow. Now let's get started!

What You'll Need

  • 1 Piece 1 1/2" Grosgrain Ribbon (28" in length)
  • 1 Piece 3/8", 5/8" or 7/8" Grosgrain Ribbon (4-5" in length) *Choose whatever width you want, if you want a smaller center knot use 3/8" or for a "fluffier" center knot use 5/8" or 7/8" width ribbon.
  • 1 Piece 24 or 22 Gauge Craft Wire (4-5" in length)
  • Wire Cutters
  • Heat Sealer (I use a lighter)
  • Hot Glue Gun (I use a high temperature hot glue gun)
  • Hair Tie or Clip of your choice
