In this regard, how much ribbon do you need to make a hair bow?
It's not an easy question to answer since there are so many variables, but in general, you need about 25 inches of 7/8″ ribbon. However, it's really much more involved than that. Below is a graphic showing 12 different bows made from 4 of the most common sizes of ribbon used for Boutique Style hair bows.
One may also ask, how long should a bow ribbon be? Take a long piece of ribbon (at least 36 inches) and create a loop at one end, folding one side over itself. Use your thumb to hold down the inside of the loop. This is the center of your bow.
Simply so, how do you make a big hair bow out of ribbon without sewing?
No Sew Hair-Bow!
- Ribbon, hair clip, glue gun, done!
- Step 2: Fold your ribbons in half and crease the center.
- Step 3: Fold each side into the center and hot glue them down.
- Step 4: Complete step 3 with your other 6″ piece of ribbon.
- Step 5: Pinch the center of your bow towards you and put a small amount of glue on the inside.
How many feet of ribbon do I need for a bow?
For an average sized bow, cut a piece of ribbon 3 yards (2.7 meters) long. Measure 1 foot (0.3 meters) of ribbon and pinch the ribbon together widthwise at that point. This will be the tail of the bow.
