The other day I came home to my daughter and her babysitter creating duct tape hair bows and I fell in love.
They are too cute and better yet, super easy! Which reminds me, I’ve been wanting to share this awesome gift idea with you since…ooh…April. My daughter received a bin full of duct tape with a few instructions of how to create things with it. How cool is that?! Great gift idea for a wide age range too.
Okay, now back to the bows. This too, would be a super sweet gift to give to the girls in your life. My daughter was so excited about them, she started making one for anyone she could think of…including her grandmas. I cannot wait to see the bows in their hair!!
here’s what you need to get started…
- duct tape
- bobby pins, hair clips or headbands
Cut a 3 inch strip of duct tape.
Stick the 3 inch strip to the duct tape still on the roll - sticky side to sticky side.
Then cut it off so you end up with print on both sides of a 3 inch strip.
Fold it like an accordion, just like when you made homemade fans as a kid.
Cut a small strip of contrasting tape to wrap around the middle to create the bow.
Slide a bobby pin under the strip. Boom, you’re done!
You can use clips from Michael’s or thin headbands too.
Variation: the “double-decker”
Just add a smaller bow to sit on top of the bigger one.
A couple other options would be to glue the bows on shoe clips to jazz up some shoes or attach them to gifts, make a pin, so many options.
