I made these heart bows for Macey on Saturday (to match her Sunday dress, and of course for the upcoming holiday) and they were so super simple to make I thought I’d do a little tutorial for you.
Step one: Cut four pieces of ribbon. I prefer to use 3/8 inch grosgrain ribbon, but I’m all out of white so I had to rock what I got and ended up using some wider sheer white.
You’re going to need one piece each of 6 inch, 5 1/2 inch, 5 inch, and 4 1/2 inch ribbon. Seal the ends with a candle.
Take your 6 inch piece of ribbon and put a dab of glue on the TOP of it at three inches and pinch it. Then you’ll put a dab of glue on the bottom of the “v” and put your 5 1/2 inch ribbon underneath the 6 inch ribbon. Keep going until you’ve got your ribbon looking like this.
Line a clippy with ribbon (I get mine at Sally Beauty Supply). Put a dob of glue on it like so. . .
Take your bottom layer of ribbon and glue it down so it forms a heart. Keep going with your layers of ribbon until it looks like this.
And there you have a cute little heart bow.
Happy bow making to ya!
