How to make a scene / emo / harajuku hair bow and pin(DIY tutorial)

Hey everyone! Always wonder how those cute bow hair pins are made? Want to have some for yourself but you don't have $7.00 to spare?

This super cute and easy DIY tutorial (DIY= do it yourself) will explain every step of the way so you can get that adorable scene, emo or harajuku accessory you want sooo badly!

1. Ribbon of your choice in 1" and 1/2" (around 5 inches of each - I used satin ribbon)
2. fabric glue or a glue gun and glue sticks
3. scissors
4. metal hair pin
5. tape measure
6. florist wire or a twisty tie

Ready? Set? Let's GO!
Step 1: Grab your ribbon and cut 5 inches of it.
Step 2: Glue one edge and fold it up to close it up.
Step 3: Put a little glue on the top and fold it together, can you see the bow forming?

Step 4:. Now make another one just like it and tie them together with a twistie tie or florist wire.Step 5: Grab your 1/2 inch ribbon, put some glue on the edge and glue it the back of your bow and loop it around, glue it again to close.

Step 6:Grab a metal hair clip and glue it, then put the bow and press it, holding it for few seconds, and voila! Enjoy your new hair pin!
