I have long wondered how korker hairbows were made. I foolishly thought that there was special curling ribbon and wondered why I never saw it in the stores. I finally googled it and it's amazing! All you do is wrap your regular old ribbon around a 1/4" dowel, secured at each end with binder clips, and...get this...bake it in your oven at 250 degrees for 20 minutes. I never would have thought of that! I fired up my toaster oven so that I didn't have to waste so much electricity and gave it a try. It is fabulous!
My son has a birthday party to go to this weekend so I made his friend a hairbow hanger with a stuffed butterfly on the top. On the ribbon, I hung one large, raspberry colored korker bow and a set of smaller blue polka dot hair barrettes. My son chose the ribbons.
I love making hairbows for my daughter (the one who is old enough not to put them in her mouth). The korkers are so much fun to make and I am happy to add them to my hairbow making repertoire!
