Hair Bows with Clay Button Centers

Our Bowdabra Design Team shared with collage_final-300x220you yesterday how to make polymer clay button hair bow centers. We designed several different unique types that would look lovely in the center of button_clay_104-300x220your hair bows.

Today we made several different hair bows using our Mini Bowdabra and Hair Bow Tool & Ruler. We then attached the buttons to the center of the hair clips and we think they give our hair bows an awesome finished look! We hope that you agree.

We created a large style bow with a purple button center. We used our Mini Bowdabra, Hair Bow Tool & Ruler, and the Interactive Hair Bow Making CD to easily design this bow. We layered netting, a 4? wide 6 loop basic bow, ribbon sprays, and finished with a small bow tie. Then we threaded the Bowdabra Bow Wire through the button holes and brought the wire around to the back.

Using our Mini Bowdabra and Hair Bow Tool and Ruler we also created an 8 loop basic bow, stacked with a Boutique Bow, and finished with a small little bow 2 loop bow with tails. Using our Bowdabra Bow Wire we attached the bow to a plastic barrette clip.

Lastly, we made a very unique hair bow with the large eyed clay buttons. To begin with we created a Boutique Bow with 2? Tails using the inches side of our Hair Bow Tool & Ruler. We then trimmed away the Bowdabra Bow Wire.

We added a finishing knot to the center of our small bow but kept the Bowdabra Bow Wire in place. Then we threaded the Bowdabra Bow Wire through the large eyed bead and placing the bow on top of the bead.
