DIY ~ Hair Bows

I love to wear fancy hair accessories in my bun for dance!
A plain ol' bun gets so boring!!! Heehee!
Here's how I made a whole bunch so I have lots to choose from!
One to match every pair of crazy leggings! LOL
First take some felt and cut a strip about an inch to an inch and a half wide and about 7 inches long.
Using a glue gun, make a stripe of glue down the center and fold each end into it.

Now cut a small strip of felt about a 1/4 of an inch wide and 2 inches long.
Pinch your felt in the middle.

Glue one end of your small bit to the back of your "bow".
Glue a bobby pin just at the fold part onto the back as well.
Wrap your middle small piece around the front and back around to the back.
Pull it through the bobby pin so it covers the edge where you glues it on.
Glue to secure the end of the middle piece of felt and clip end if too long.

Aren't they cute?!?
I've been wearing them lots!
