Welcome to Ribbons and Hairbows Galore here on Udemy! I am so glad you have joined me to explore a few of the many options for making cute and stylish hair accessories. Often, these can be quickly and easily made at home for a fraction of the retail cost, and the projects themselves are so much fun that it may just serve to satisfy and "arts and crafts" craving that overwhelms you at times. Throughout the course, we will explore several different ideas to get you started, ranging from casual "play day" bows to bows suitable to adorn a darling little flower girl at your next family wedding. (Also included is the practical hair bow organizer -- sure to be Mom's favorite!) Each lecture provides step by step instruction, and clear video footage, so that even the most hesitant beginner can learn with ease. My goal is to equip you -- no matter what your past experience or skill may be -- with the knowledge you need to create accessories for your own families, for gifts, or for an on-the-side entrepreneurial venture.
So, grab your ribbon, scissors, and creativity, and prepare to have a blast! Let's get started!
Welcome to Ribbons and Hairbows Galore! In this lecture, I will explain some hair bow supply basics, as well as touch on the highlights of what we will be covering throughout our time together.
Are you new to this delightful craft? Do you find yourself overwhelmed when wandering down the ribbon isles of your local craft store? If so, this lecture is especially for you! During this lecture, I will give detailed descriptions of the supplies you will need to begin so that selecting them from the shelves will be a breeze.
Let's get started! During this lecture, we will do our first basic hair bow, giving you a good foundation for the projects to follow.
During this lecture, we will learn the next technique and experiment with a double layer of ribbon, adding dimension and an extra splash of cuteness!
Have a wedding coming up? Is that sweet little girl playing in the next piano recital? Then this bow is the one for you! Learn to use both satin and sheer ribbon and make a bow that will beautify and complete her dress.
Buttons, buttons, everywhere! Buttons can be the perfect center or top to a bow, adding a pretty dimension and speaking of the personality of the child, so learn how use them in hair bow-making with ease!
This lecture details the creation of an adorable hair band/bow combo that is sure to bring delighted smiles to the face of the little one who likes to do her own hair. Simply comb the hair and let her slide it in, and she is set for the day.
Learn to make this simple yet happy accessory and then make some more with your little girl right there beside you! As the least-difficult of all the projects in this course, the Wild Hair Tie is certainly a favorite and adorns a ponytail or French braid with cheerful style.
Searching for a precise and orderly way to organize all those adorable accessories and rid your bathroom sink and dresser of the clutter? Do you want a quick way of finding the "perfect bow" each day without having to hunt through the chaos of a disheveled drawer? This hair bow organizer may well be the answer to your dilemma! Make one that coordinates with the decor of the room and this project, so quick and simple, will not only make your life more organized but will add a cute splash of color to the place in which it hangs.
Thank you so much for joining me on this somewhat brief but delightful introduction into the world of ribbon and hair bows! I hope that this course has provided you with the tools you need to move onward and create many more fashionable accessories -- all your own -- in the future.
