How to make an adorable conversation heart hair bow

conversation heart hair bow

This conversation heart hair bow is so easy to make and so adorable you won’t be able to stop with just one. Make one for gifts for your favorite little girl, or you can make one for yourself. Make a few for the cheer squad. And make some to sell at your next craft fair. They are that cute!

I used red wired ribbon trimmed with little white dots but you can you any color you choose instead, along with different color conversation heart motifs. (They come in all colors!)

  1. Next, cut 56” of ribbon. Use a lighter or some clear nail polish on the ends to keep them from fraying. To start with, fold the ribbon in half to find the center and then insert it into the Bowdabra.

Finishing your bow

  1. Insert the two loose wires through the loop (to make a slip knot) and pull tightly while the bow is still in the Bowdabra. Separate the ends and pull tight. Remove from the Bowdabra, turn to the back and tie another knot. Lastly, f luff and adjust your bow.

  1. Attach a ribbon covered alligator heart to the back using a hot glue gun and glue sticks.  You may want to use the excess bow wire to tie the clip on as well so that it will be extra secure.
