These cute knotted hair ties are also great as gifts or as an identical group accessory for sisters, cousins or for your daughter and her friends. This way, everyone will know they are tied together as friends.

Even better: if she ever gets bored with a tie color, she can always unknot the bow and move it onto a different tie or other hair accessory.

How to add more interest to your knotted hair ties?

  1. You can use different fabrics for the two sides of the bows, so don’t worry if you only have small pieces and you can’t use them to cut out both sides. You can use complementing or contrasting fabrics, it’s up to you and your own taste.
  2. Instead of pointy ends, you can make them round or rectangular. They would look just as cute, but you will have many different hair bows in many styles. No matter how you make them, these pretty knotted hair ties will add some color to any hair style.
  3. Take these cute knotted hair ties to the next level by adding pretty buttons, sequins, glitter or anything that can make them unique.
  4. You can also knot two bows on the same tie for a fuller look.
  5. Also, make them in velvet, satin or sequin fabric for a more festive look, for example for holidays, parties or special days.
  6. You can also knot these bows on a hair scrunchie, a clip or a headband. Make them a little longer to give the impression of a small scarf tied around a ponytail. They look great and are of huge effect. In this case, it’s better to make the bow from the same fabric as the scrunchie.

I just hope you enjoyed this quick project as much as I did and I’m sure you managed to make very cute hair ties. Please tell me how you feel about it in the comments section below.
