Step 1

Take 2 x 22cm lengths gros­grain rib­bon, ends sealed with a lighter. Lay one out hor­i­zon­tally. Mea­sure 4cm from end of left side of one rib­bon. Pick up right side and fold down as shown. Place a hair clip at top of folded edge to hold in place.

Step 2

Fold your rib­bon on folded edge to make a point. Use short length of rib­bon on top as your cen­tre and mea­sure 4cm from that edge. Fold your folded edge back to cre­ate a point with flat end of your rib­bon sitting on top of the other flat end.

Step 3

Gather cen­tre of your bow and thread a nee­dle with knot­ted thread through cen­tre and tie up tight. Re­peat each step with sec­ond length of rib­bon. Once you have two double-pointed rib­bon ends, join by stitch­ing them at the cen­tre.

Step 4 T r s W g a t

Take an ex­tra 9cm of gros­grain rib­bon and use a hot glue gun to stick it to the back of your bow. Wrap rib­bon around your bow, hot glue it to back and trim rib­bon. Then at­tach it to a hair clip, let it dry then pin it in your daugh­ter’s hair.
