Holiday Boutique Hair bows easy tutorial

Holiday boutique hair bows

There are so many beautiful netted ribbons in the craft stores right now and they are perfect for making Holiday boutique hair bows.

I found this beautiful white-netted ribbon that reminds me of a snowy day and ice-crusted windows. Simply add a charm or button in the center as a fun accent. There are really cute tiny ornaments for mini Christmas trees that work as well. Your favorite little girl is sure to love it.

These bows are a favorite at craft shows. They make up so quickly and are so easy and fun to create that you will want to make some extras for gifts too!
