Pretty cute and a nice accessory if you are going to a party. Best of all it is so easy to make! Check it out.
What you need is a hairband, six latex strips in two colors and one smaller strip to glue later around the bow.
1. Cut the strips
Cut the strips into the right length. The first strip for the latex bow should be 14 cm (5.5″) long (here its the Lilac strip) and the second one should be 12 cm (4.7″). They have both the same width of 1,5 cm (0.6″).
Now you need four strips for the bow tails, two of each color. Decide yourself how long they should be, you can always shorten them after you are done with your double latex bow.
2. Apply the glue
Take the two longer strips for the bow, clean them and mark the middle of them. Apply the glue on the outer sides and the middle of the strip. Wait until the latex straighten itself out again.
3. Make the bows
Now glue the outer sides towards the middle of your strip.
Apply the glue on the middle of both bows. The smaller bow will be glued up on top of the larger one. Use the seam roller and apply pressure to your glued seam.
5. Glue strip around the bow
6. The bow tail
Now you need the four strips which you have left. Cut them in the end in a ankle you like, I have chosen a 45° angle.
Apply the glue on the top of the strips and glue the bow tails together, so that they slightly spread apart in the end. Now you can glue both bow tails together. Then they are ready for the bow.
7. Glue the bow tail on the bow
Just take your prepared bow tail and glue it on the back of the bow. Done!
8. Get the bow on the hairband
Now you can glue a little loop in the back of the bow, so that you can stick your bow on a hairband. The advantage of gluing a loop in the back is that you can always exchange the bow to another one in a different color etc. so that it matches your dress, instead of attaching it permanently.
I hope you got inspired and have fun with this little tutorial.
Let me know how it went or send me some pictures of your hairband.
