You know those $1 little flags you can get anywhere? I made one into a Flag Pinwheel Hair Bow.
I really liked how it turned out. Pinwheels are very cute and very trendy right now… and so I incorporated it into a hair bow. In a house full of girls hair bows are always needed! Here are the instructions and directions to make your own.
Flag Pinwheel Hair Bow
By Carrie Perrins
*Pinwheel Instructions adapted from leslietryon
Paper cutter or rotary cutter
hot glue gun
Step 1: Cut off the flag from the wooden pole.
Step 2: Trim the cut flag… to give it an even straight line. But…don’t cut off any stars.
Step 3: Cut your flag into a 4×4 square.
Step 4: Fold your square corner to corner and unfold. It should give you a big X when you have folded the two corners.
Step 5: Mark with a pencil a little line about 1/3 of the way from the center.
Step 6: Cut with scissors along fold line up until the pencil mark.
Step 7: Hot glue every other corner down in the center.
Step 8: Hot glue an embellishment over the center of the folded/glued pieces. I used a glitter foam sticker. Hot glue a double prong alligator clip to the back of the Flag Pinwheel.
There is your finished Flag Pinwheel Hair Bow in 8 easy steps.
