The month of December is so fun. There are so many ways to decorate. Adding some hair bows to your accessory collection is a great way to be festive everywhere you go. This Reindeer Hair Bow tutorial will walk you through the steps to make a hair bow that looks like a reindeer (use a brown pom pom) or Rudolph or a girl version of a red nosed reindeer.
Little Sister, who is almost 7-years-old, absolutely LOVES her reindeer hair bow. She wore it as soon as I was done with the last bit of hot glue.
Reindeer Hair Bow Materials Required
For this DIY project you will need:
- Brown Ribbon
- Another color ribbon to make a bow for your bow. 🙂
- Glue Gun (super glue works as well)
- Small Googley eyes
- Tiny pom poms
- Hair Clips – you can also get these at beauty supply stores
DIY Reindeer Hair Bow Tutorial
Start this project by covering the hair clip with brown ribbon. Use the lighter to lightly burn the edges of the ribbon before you glue it to the hair clip. The photo below is merely an example and does not reflect the colors of ribbon that I used in this post.
Glue the ribbon around the hair clip.
Grab your brown ribbon. You don’t need to cut it just yet….simply pull some from the spool so you can work with it.
Loop it so you have two loops side by side. I used a little extra hot glue on the back to hold the pieces together. Once you have two piece of ribbon side by side you can glue the reindeer’s pom pom nose. Use red for Rudolph or brown/black for a regular reindeer. Don’t forget to prevent fraying by using a lighter on the edges.
Make antlers by taking a piece of brown ribbon and making two figure eights. Glue all these pieces together with hot glue. You can use wire for this part, but I didn’t feel it was necessary. I planned on covering up any spots of hot glue with a bow.
Using your complimentary ribbon color, make a tiny bow and glue to the reindeer’s antlers. Glue the fully finished reindeer onto the ribbon wrapped hair clip.
What do you think? Will you make this Reindeer Hair Bow?
