Today I am just going to show you how I made the bow my little red-head wore for her baptism. It was very easy and quick and I love how it turned out.
I started with these 3 pieces. I bought them all at Hobby Lobby and with the coupon I paid less than $6 for all 3 of them.
I broke out my hot glue gun and started layering.
I first added the smaller tulle flower to the top of the bigger satin flower. The little flower had a clip on the back. I just used my scissors to cut it off so it would lay nice and flat on top of the other flower.
Next I added the ostrich puff. It also had a clip on the back that I cut off. I put the puff under the top layer of the bigger flower and well off to the side so it would be nice and big since she has a ton of hair.
I used felt on the back to attach a clip. I used a couple bobby pins to get the placement right in her hair since it is a bigger bow. If you were putting it on a headband the bobby pins won’t be needed.
This isn’t the best picture of the bow but it shows well how big it is. I love it. I love being able to find things to make projects like this a little easier. I *could* have done all 3 pieces from scratch but I was running low on time (she was suppose to wear the same headband her sisters wore for their baptism but it went missing of course until the day AFTER the baptism) so this was perfect. You don’t have to be a professional hair flower/bow maker to create big beautiful bows for less than you’d pay for them!
