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.
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...
Place ribbon over your index finger with about 15cm for the bow tail hanging in front of your palm.
Then wrap the ribbon over your index finger again so you have two layers of ribbon.
Pull tight. Adjust as you pull to ensure the knot remains in the centre of your 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.
