DIY felt bows




So I've decided to share a picture tutorial of the bows I make for Tatum! They are so fun and so easy to make! And even better they are so cheap! yay! I don't know about you but all that is right up my alley! 

I really have enjoyed crafting lately, not only because I have tons of time on my hands now, but it makes me feel like I am not wasting my day! 
So enjoy! If you're anything like me you'll find yourself making these all day everyday so you can have a bow for every outfit!


 Supplies needed: 

What you will need is felt, hot glue gun, scissors, and elastic or clips! 
{you can also hand stitch these if you would like but I find a hot glue gun works wonders!}




 Bow #1 



step 1: cut out a rectangle piece of felt and a longer thin strip of felt. {you can also round the edges on the big piece of felt to make the bow round instead of square.}



step 2: pinch the center of the big piece of felt together {you can add a little hot glue to make it more secure.}




step 3: wrap scrap piece around the center.



step 4: glue to elastic or clip.



Ta-da! you're done!

 Bow #2 

ps. sorry the lighting was super bad for this bow, I did it later in the day and the sun was just not helping! 




step 1: cut out 3 piece pattern shown below.


step 2: bend the two ends of the bow loop towards the middle so they overlap and hot glue.


step 3: flip bow over and place over lapped side on the base of the bow.


step 4: wrap the center strip around the bow and glue.



step 5: glue to elastic or clip.

All done! So easy and so cute! You can also make these bows as big or as small as you would like!
