DIY No Sew Hair Bows and Gorgeous Hat for Royal Wedding

Learn to make easy DIY No Sew Hair Bows and even a hat for the royal wedding. Join Sandy Sandler, Creator of the Bowdabra as she takes you through this exciting journey of making incredibly cute and adorable hair and head accessories.

PRETTY PINK HEADBAND

Sandy takes 3 pieces of cute pink ribbon about 5 inches in length and dovetailed at the ends. She puts them in the Mini Bowdabra with a little crease in the middle and adds two pieces of cute and curly korker ribbon. She adds flowers and a floral pick to the arrangement and ties up the bow with the bow wire. By weaving the loose ends of the bow wire into the seam of a headband, Sandy makes a pretty pink adorable headband in minutes!

HAIR BOW IN MINUTES

For the next hair bow, Sandy takes a piece of bright pink ribbon, cut at the ends in slants. She places it in the Mini Bowdabra with a slight mountain crease. Over it Sandy adds a longer piece of the ribbon, folded in loops to make a bow. A black and white polka dotted wired ribbon scrunched in on the top gives a lovely contrast to the pink bow. Tied to a hair clip, it makes a beautiful hair bow.

GORGEOUS HAT FOR THE ROYAL WEDDING OR ANY PATRIOTIC CELEBRATION

For the hat to celebrate the Royal Wedding in the UK, Sandy takes a straw hat on which she has glued felt stars in red, white and blue to match the flag colors of both USA and UK. She starts by placing flowers in the Large Bowdabra and adds a long piece of white tulle to make a loopy bow. Over it Sandy adds another bow with red satin wired ribbon. Next comes a red lacy ribbon bow over the arrangement.

A blue, red and white patterned ribbon bow is added next to the arrangement. When the whole bow is tied up and the loops are shaped out, it makes an astonishingly beautiful bow on top of the hat. You can wear it to celebrate the royal wedding or any patriotic holiday.

SUPER CUTE DOLL’S HAT BOW

With a sparkled tulle and another pink tulle scrunched into the Bowdabra, Sandy starts the next hat – this time a little doll’s hat. She adds pieces of dovetailed pink ribbons in light and dark shades the bow and finishes it with a stone in the middle stuck with a glue dot.

LITTLE TULLE BOW WITH A CHARM

A cute little bow is the last project for the evening, made with a charm that tops a bow made from a piece of tulle and some pieces of patterned ribbons. Tied up together and shaped out, they make a beautiful bow that can be attached to a hair clip, ponytail holder or headband.
