I am 8 weeks away from delivering a baby girl . . . and I am one of those moms who loves to put little hairbows and headbands in my baby’s hair. I have seen a couple of felt bows floating around the Internet and decided to do my own take on them.
The best part of these bows is that no sewing is required- all you need is a glue gun! They also can be made in about 10 minutes (I love quick and easy projects!). So pull out some felt scraps, plug in your glue gun, and let’s get started!
Here is the template I made to make it SUPER easy for you to make these bows:
All finished! Now just repeat with other colors for some cute hair accessories.
You could attach an alligator clip or bobby pin to the back to put it in your hair . . .
Or you could attach to elastic for a darling little baby headband!
I just purchased this elastic at a craft store for about $1. It is 1/4″ wide and 3 yards long. I was able to make about 8 headbands with it.
As far as sizing for headbands, here are the measurements that I use:
10″ for newborns
12″ for 0-3 months
14″ for 3-6 months
16″ for 6-9 months
18″ for 9-12 months
Cut a small rectangle piece of felt that is not any longer or wider than your bow.
Put a dot of glue on the back of your bow and place the two ends of the elastic on the glue dot.
Take your little rectangle of felt and put a strip of glue on it.
Place rectangle over the two ends of elastic to cover them up and hold in place until glue dries.
Let me know if you have any questions!
