Duct Tape Hair Bows

So, I love Duct Tape, it’s pretty fun stuff. And I’ve already showed you a few fun crafts. I love teen crafts. Do you know why? there are so few on the internet. Young kids have a lot of fun little crafts they can do, but when I’ve looked, there really isn’t a lot that is there for teens/older kids. I know that many already are into their own ‘thing’, maybe painting, or drawing, or listening to music, playing games. but once in a while, my kids like to do a hands on craft. And what is there, that isn’t too childish for them?

This is totally do-able. And really, the only thing you might need to help them with is the hot glue part. Just so they don’t burn the crud out of their fingers. I do that often enough with hot glue, no need for the kids to do it just yet.

How about these fun and trendy duct tape hair bows? They are darling. the duct tape comes in a variety of patterns and you only need some plain clips for the hair, so it’s not all that expensive. They could create bows for every day of the week, colors of the rainbow and still not have the same bows. These are a few that I created, I doubled the neon pink so that we’d have a set for two braids or pony tails.

What you need. Duct Tape, a hair clip, scissors, and a hot glue gun. I like the hot glue because it sets up fast and holds well.

What you do.

Pull out your duct tape. You’ll need about 16 inches.

Fold it over on itself. You’ll need about an 8 inch piece.

Cut off the excess from the duct tape roll.

Fold it in thirds so that both ends of the tape, meet in the middle of the section.

Pull off a small section of tape, about 4 inches long. Fold it in thirds on itself. This is the middle of the bow.

Now you have the bow, and the center of the bow.

Crinkle the bow piece so that you can adjust your folds. This is basically the folds you will have in the bow, try to get them even.

Take the middle piece, and tape it onto the back of the bow.

Wrap it around the front, and tighten the bow, then adhere the middle part again with another piece of tape.

Then simply put one finger into the bow and separate the pieces to fluff your bow, making any adjustments to the middle piece or making sure you have enough tape to hold the pieces together.

There is your duct tape hair bow.
