I LOVE little bows! These little felt bows have to be the cutest thing ever! I absolutely love having a little girl. She is such a sweet heart. I love dressing her up and making her fun flowers and bows. You should see her bow board … it is over flowing… literally! lol! Today I’m going to show you how to make these fun felt bows!

1. To start the felt bow cut 2 pieces of felt (A) 1in x 6in and (B) 1in x 4in

2. Take piece (A) and fold one edge into center and glue. This should measure 1 1/2 inches. Then take the other end and fold into center, bumping heads with the other edge.

3. Put a dab of glue in the center and pinch together. Hold for 10 seconds.

4. Cut a small piece of felt (C) 1/2in x 2in

5. Put hot glue on piece B.

6. Lay piece A on top of B. Make sure you have enough glue on there to make it stick well.

7. Cut off the extra felt (into the curve) with your scissors.

8. Cut ends to a point.

9. To finish the felt bow take piece C and wrap around the center of the bow.

10. Glue the two ends on the back side.

11. Attach trim, lace, rhinestones to center. They look plain cute too!

12. Attach elastic, pin or hair clip to the back of the felt bow if desired.


Enjoy your new felt bows! Felt comes in a variety of colors, so you can have one in every color! IMG_2140

Another fun way to dress them up, is to sew or glue a ruffle on the back of the bow. 🙂


You can even get a little more creative and add some tulle! 🙂 Enjoy your new felt bows!
