Simple Hair Bow

Cheer camp is next week, so we are gearing up for what's to come.  This week, I am making bows; this zebra bow is a simple bow and takes only minutes to make.

  • Ribbon - I used 1.5 inch wide satin zebra print, and 7/8 inch wide black satin.
  • Glue gun
  • Scissors
  • Hair elastic
  • Fray Check
  1. Cut a 3 inch length of the black ribbon and tie into a knot.
  2. Cut a 21 inch length of the zebra ribbon and fold like pictured.
  3. Pinch center of the bow and glue the black ribbon to the front.
  4. Place the elastic against the back of the bow and glue the black ribbon ends around the elastic.
  5. Dab fray check in a line along the cut ends of the bow to keep from fraying.
