Add a little extra to the perfect ballet hairstyle, when wrapping a gift or give their favourite soft toy a new look with one of these gorgeous double bows. You could even hot glue your bow onto a hair clip for the easiest ballet bun accessory.

You'll need...

To tie one of these double bows to match our new season Tutus and leotards you’ll need;

      • a length of ribbon about 40cm (this is just for a bow, if you are tying around a ballet bun or present you’ll need some extra length),
      • a pair of scissors,
      • a lighter/match to seal the ends of your ribbon.

          How to tie a double bow...

          Adjust bow ears to suit and trim ribbon ends to the desired length. We used a lighter to seal the ends of the ribbon so it doesn't fray.

          And Voila! you should have a beautiful double bow.
