No-Sew Baby Bow Ties

Baby boy bow ties are very easy to make with a scrap of ribbon and a hot glue gun! I designed four colorful bow ties one weekend to dress up my little guy for his belated baby shower. Our baby boy recently joined our family of girls and after three years of hair bows and tutus, I found myself regularly wondering how I could accessorize him. These bow ties are so cute! I was very excited to discover how simple bow ties are to design in just minutes.

I can easily attach my homemade bow ties to any outfit or onesie with a small safety pin.

How to Make Baby Bow Ties

To make these cute baby boy bow ties, all you need is a length of wide ribbon. I used wire ribbon and just pulled the wire out. With so many types of plaid, striped, solid, and even glittery ribbon, your little guy could have a whole collection of bow ties!

Step 1: First, cut the ribbon to 6″ in length. Take out any wire from the edges by pulling it out from the end.

Step 3: Fold down the edges of the ribbon loop to create a bow shape. Attach each edge with a dot of hot glue and repeat on the back side.

Cute bow ties. I want to make some. I think maybe glueing on a hair clip would be better to use then a safety pin.

Hi! The easiest way to attach them is to pin them with a large safety pin.
