Hairbow Supplies, Etc. sent a BIG bag of elastic ribbon over for my girls to enjoy.  SO many colors.  This was only a fourth of the ribbons they sent!  Each “slice” of ribbon has about 3-4 yards of ribbon.

That means TONS of flowers and headbands!

How to Make Ribbon Flowers

According to my seven-year old, the flower above is the easiest ribbon flower to make.

You will need roughly 1 foot of ribbon, less for a smaller flower, more if your ribbon is thick.

Sew along one edge of the ribbon.  Then pull the strings to gather the ribbon into bunches.  Swirl the ribbon until it makes a “flower”.  We knotted the strings together after the flower was formed, then hot glued the flower to a “backing” to keep it in it’s “flower” shape.

Attach the flower to a hair clip.
