Sweethearts Candy Hair Bow / Broach

After making my Sweethearts Candy Hair Pins I decided to make another hair accessory/ broach, using ribbon, a hair clip, and a safety pin for a simple & easy accessory to wear on Valentine's Day. Plus, it would be a really fun activity for little girls to make and then wear to school for giving out their Valentine cards!

  • Ribbon
  • Tacky Glue, Fabric Glue, or Glue & Glue Gun
  • Candy Heart
  • Small rectangular piece of felt or Fabric
  • Hair Clip
  • Safety Pin
First, cut 5 pieces of Ribbon: 2 at about 8 inches, 2 at about 3 inches, and 1 at about 1 1/2 inches.
Then, with the two longer pieces glue the ends on top of the center. This is where you'll put the bow together now, with the bow parts glued on slightly diagonally, and the 2 ends under between the bows. With the smallest pieces glue it in the middle of the bow and wrap it around, gluing it on the back.

Once, you have your bow together, glue on the candy heart.

Then, just as I have done in the past with my flower hair pin tutorials use the felt to glue the clip and pin to the bow. Let it dry... 

And that's it!

 Happy Valentine's Day Everyone!
