Easy Felt Bow Ties #Diy For #Valentines or Anytime

Dear Creatives, With Valentine Day quickly approaching I thought I would create some Valentine Bow Ties. I wanted the Valentine Bow Ties to be easy. I had left over felt from doing the heart banners so I decided to make a few different ones for the kids. The felt bow ties are super easy you can create some yourself. I have seen other bow tie diy’s & shared them here before. But this is felt,  no sew & very easy project Felt Bow Tie project.

What kind of supplies you need can range from what you have on hand to purchasing felt from a craft store or a wool blend felt or 100% wool felt. Use ribbons & String or twine. Glittery hearts & cut out felt. A good craft glue that dries clear & is for working with fabric.  Alligator clips & bin backs. Maybe a hot glue gun & tweezers if you like. In a manner of a half an hour you can have many or in as little as 5 minutes you can have one or two for those special Valentines you love! But, here is a list of basics:

  • Felt
  • String, Ribbon or Twine
  • Craft glue for fabric that dries clear
  • Glue gun (another option) & tweezers
  • Alligator clips
  • Pin backs

  1. First cut out your felt about 41/2″ x 2 1/2″ but, you can make them any size. This size is small for a toddler or as a broach type pin
  2. Cut ribbon about 4″ or string about 12″ .
  3. Then pinch in the center.
  4. Wrap string around pinched felt.
  5. Tie a knot in the back. Either use an alligator clip or hot glue a pin backing.

    These are beautiful, Theresa. And they could work in so many Valentiney ways…from cards to gift embellishment to place-cards at a party (or special family dinner?). Love the simplicity. Lynaea @ EverydayBloom.com
