Butterflies and hair bows are both equally sweet additions to the hair, so why not combine them? While it is difficult to make a realistic butterfly visible from a ribbon, you can still create a simple look that is just as captivating. All you need is ribbon, needle and thread, hot glue, and hairpin. Immediately, you will be able to make butterflies for every occasion!


Method 1: Make a Simple Butterfly Bow

1. Cut two pieces of grosgrain inches. Your first cut should be 3 ½ inches long, and your second part should be 3 inches long. You can use solid colored ribbons for this, but the pattern will look nicer. This will make wings.
The grosgrain band is different from the satin ribbon. It is not shiny and has a wavy / striped texture.
2. Fold the antenna tape in half and plug it into the back of the butterfly. Fold the antenna in half to make the V-shape. Place on the back of the butterfly, with the tip protruding over the longer band. Secure the antenna with some stitching or with a drop of hot glue.
Choose colors that match your wider ribbon. For example, if you use a pink ribbon with white spots for wings, select the white band for the body.
3. Place the body tape behind your butterfly center. Set the body tape down on your work surface. Orientasikan vertically. Turn your butterfly so that your back faces you. Put it on the body tape. Make it central.
4. Cut tape ⅛ inch size 2 ½ inches. This will create an antenna. Use the same color as your body tape.
5. Cut the wing tape at an angle. Fold the two wing tape into two, wide. Match the ends, then cut with angles. Open the ribbon when you are done.
6. Seal heat the tape for a cleaner end result. This is not entirely necessary, but highly recommended. Not only will this make your butterflies look neater, but will also make the ribbons not frayed. Light a candle or light a match. Hold each end of the tape over the flame for a few seconds until the tip melts slightly.
Do not let the bands burn, however.
Keep the bowl or the nearest water cup, just in case.
7. Wrap the thread around the center of the wing tape, then tie it with a knot. Keep the wing tape collected with one hand, and use your other hand to wrap the thread around it several times. Pull the needle under the wrapped thread, then push it back through the circle. Create a second similar node, then pull out the excess thread.
8. Sew the stitch in the center of the wing tape, wide. Fold the wing tape halfway. Clip the folds to make a fold, then open the ribbon. Insert your needle and tie the knot at the end. Sew simple stitching along the crease
Work one wing ribbon at a time.
9. Cut a short ⅜-inch grosgrain ribbon. Ribbons only need between 1½ and 2 inches long. Use solid colors for this. This will make the body.
10. Drag the thread to collect the ribbon. This will help create a wing shape for your butterfly. Do not cut the yarn.
11. Sew, collect, and sum up your second wing. Find your second wing tape center. Make the stitches run in the middle, width. Pull the thread to collect it. Wrap the yarn around the wings several times. Conclude threads to himself, then pull out the excess.
12. Sew the wings together. Insert your needle and tie the knot at the end. Push the needle up through the center of the bottom ribbon and out through the top tape. Wrap the yarn around the center of the two ribbons several times. Tie the thread, then breathe the excess.
For a neater end result, turn the butterfly, then make two small stitches on one side of the middle thread, joining the wings together.
13. Place the wings. Place the wings side by side, with long edges touching. Place a longer wing on the top and a shorter wing on the bottom. Make sure that the angle of cuts is tilted toward the joint to make> and <shape.
Make sure that the patterned side is facing you.
14. Wrap the yarn around the center of the wing tape, then tie it with a knot. Keep the wing tape collected with one hand, and use your other hand to wrap the thread around it several times. Pull the needle under the wrapped thread, then push it back through the circle. Create a second similar node, then pull out the excess thread.
15. Wrap the body tape around the butterfly. [10] Place a drop of hot glue behind the butterfly. Pull the bottom of the tape up and press it to the glue. Cut the ribbon over. Place a drop of another glue on the back of the butterfly. Pull the top of the body tape down and press it to the glue. Snip off the tape excess.
16. Hot butterfly glue to hairclip. Hot glue with narrow band matching over the hairpin and excess remaining pieces. Draw a horizontal line behind the butterfly, use the joint between the wings as a guide. Press the butterfly above the hairclip. If you want to put butterflies into a hair band, do the following:
Cut a small circle of flavors, about the size of a butterfly center.
Close the circle with hot glue.
Place the circle on the inside of the hair band. Make sure that the hair tie is centered on it.
Press the butterfly into the glue. Orientate horizontally.
