Easy to create Bowdabra sunflower hair bow

Sun 15

It’s the time for sunshine and flowers and you can easily make a  sunflower hair bow using the Mini Bowdabra bow maker.

This bow has a barrette clip and longer tails and It  looks great attached to the top of a pony tail.

I have some friends that have beautiful thick long hair.  They absolutely love these gorgeous sunflower hair bows!
