Make your dog the most dapper pup at the party with these DIY holiday bows!
- Fabric [preferably a thicker one]
- Fabric Glue
- Elastic Hair Tie
- Chip Clip
Cut out a piece of fabric that is 13in. x 5in.
Flip the fabric so that the pattern side facing down.
Fold over about 1 in. of fabric on each side and glue the corners down to keep things in place.
Fold over the left and right sides inwards so that they meet in the middle and overlap slightly.
Add a little bit of glue to keep things in place.
Now fold this square in half, lengthwise [hotdog style].
This next step is a bit tricky to explain. You will fold the fabric in half once more and then fold back the top and bottom halves in the opposite direction – creating a wave like ripple throughout the fabric.
Once you are happy with your ripples, put some glue in between the folds and keep it in place with a chip clip. Let dry for 20+ minutes.
Your bow is starting to take form! Once dry, now flip it over and insert your hair tie.
Glue the folds shut in the circle of the hair tie.
Cut a second piece of fabric that is 2in. x 4in. Take that strip of fabric and wrap it around the center of the bow. Glue as needed to keep it secure. I glue down the beginning of the strip and the end of the strip [after it has been completely wrapped around].
Thread collar through hair tie and voila!
