“How do you make a Cheerleading bow?”

Recently I was asked “how do you make a cheerleading bow?”  And here’s what I answered:

The basic cheerleading bow is very easy to make.  Here’s a simple tutorial that will help:  How to Make a Cheer Bow

That video shows you exactly what to do to make a cheer bow with just a piece of ribbon (I use 1.5 inch wide grosgrain), a needle and thread, and a salon clip that I got at Sally Beauty Supply (which isn’t necessary but extremely helpful!)

Beyond that, you can actually make the fun sequin and shiny ribbon that you see on professional cheer bows.  The process to make them is very easy and I explain it and show it all in my course “Secrets to Cheer Bow Success.”


Which cheer bow is your favorite?  I LOVE the blue one in the center with three layers – glitter ribbon on top, zebra grosgrain in the middle, and then a mystique blue for the base.
