Can You Make Hair Bows With a Cricut?

Hair bows are an essential accessory for many women and girls as they allow you to add a cute and stylish touch to your look. But what if you could make them at home, with your own Cricut machine? You can! Making hair bows with a Cricut is easy and fun, and you can create unique designs that will make you stand out.

The first step in making hair bows with a Cricut is to choose the materials you want to use. You can use felt, fabric, or even vinyl. Once you have chosen your material, it’s time to design the shape of your bow. You can use the software that came with your Cricut to create the perfect design. Once you are satisfied with the design, it’s time to cut it out.

Before cutting out your bow shape on the Cricut, make sure that you have placed the material on the cutting mat correctly and securely.

Then select “Cut” in the software and let your machine do its work! After it has finished cutting, carefully remove the cut-out shape from the mat and set aside.

Now comes the fun part: assembling your bow! Take two of your cut-out shapes and place them back-to-back so that they form an “X” shape. Then use a hot glue gun or craft glue to secure them together at their centers. Once they are secured together, fold up each side of the “X” so that they form loops on either side of the center. Lastly, tie a piece of ribbon through both loops to complete your bow.

Once you have mastered making basic bows using felt or fabric, why not try using vinyl? Vinyl bows are perfect for special occasions as they provide a more polished look than traditional fabric bows. Start by choosing a design for your vinyl bow – either one you created yourself or one from Cricut’s library of designs – then follow all of the same steps above for cutting out and assembling it.


Making hair bows with a Cricut is easy and fun! You can choose from felt, fabric or vinyl materials to create unique designs that will make you stand out from everyone else. With some practice, anyone can master this craft in no time at all! So go ahead – give making hair bows with a Cricut a try today.
