Naptime Creation: Halloween Hair Do!

Easy Peasy
Hair Bow

Naptime Creations are fun activities for school age children and parents. These hair bows are incredibly easy, need no glue or hot glue guns and cost next to nothing! Oh and they are really cute too!

  1. Gather your materials. You will need two fun contrasting ribbons, I am using craft ribbon because it’s stiffer and will keep it’s shape well. You also need a hair elastic, some pinking shears and a can from your pantry.
  2. Cut 4 pieces of ribbon, 2 in each color in two longer and two shorter lengths. I used pinking shears to prevent unraveling and i like the way it looks.
  3. Pop the elastic on the can , this will keep your elastic in one place while you tie the ribbons on.
  4. Tie the ribbon on making a snug knot. If the ribbon isn’t even don’t worry you can always cut it later.
  5. Keep tying the ribbon OVER the original knot, with your last layer you want to tie a double knot.
  6. That’s it- told you it was easy peasy!

    Very cute! Now, what’s the tip on how to put it in your child’s hair and end up w/the bow on top after all the twisting to get it tight enough? 😉 Oh, that’s probably just me that has this problem :)

    I just wanted to tell you that I am so glad I found your blog! This is exactly what I have been looking for! I love to do crafts with my three-year old, but sometimes I spend more time just trying to find a project to do with her. Since I found your blog Sunday night we have already done three projects, and I now have a steady stream of ideas thanks to you! I posted your link on facebook b/c I know many other moms looking for just this sort of thing!
