Simple No Sew Felt Bow Tie DIY

Friday, March 14, 2014


Today I want to share a super simple little DIY felt bow tie I created last year for a Little Professor's birthday party. Each guest received a plain white t-shirt that we added a little bow tie to.

All you need is:

  • A rectangle of felt measuring 4" wide x 2.75" tall (the bow)
  • A strip of felt measuring 1" wide x approximately 2.5" tall (the center of your bow)
  • Hot glue gun
  • Pin 
  1. Pinch or the top and bottom into the center of your "bow piece" and glue. Be careful not to burn yourself. It only takes a second for the glue to set. 
  2. Starting in the back side of your bow, attach your "center strip", then wrap around the front and attach in the back. 
  3. Add your pin with enough glue that it is secured. I made sure the glue came up through the holes a bit and let dry. 

Here is what our Little Professors looked like.

I hope you like the GIF tutorial and find a fun use for these simple bow ties. 
All the best,
