I’m sure you’re looking at the picture above wondering, “What in the heck is that?” If you guessed Hair Bows, you’re correct!
This year Taylor is a cheerleader for a jr. football league, so it seems only appropriate to make some accessories for her new uniform (pictured on the left). After looking at some “deluxe spirit bows” and being shocked at the price (between $5.50-$10 each), I decided to make my own. While at Walmart, I got all my supplies – ribbon (lots of it, in fact I have leftovers), ‘ouchless’ hair elastics, and over-sized clear sequins.
So did I save any money? Not really. Each hair bow cost about $5.75, but now Taylor has 2 unique elastics to wear when games start and I have some ribbons left over just in case I need to make another (although, it may be a little mismatched!).
