DIY No-Sew Bow


I get a lot of my inspiration from Pinterest. I have an entire board dedicated to things that I want to try and create, one of which was this pretty pink and gold bow. One of my very first DIY tutorials was this plaid bow-tie. Today, I decided to do a quick, no-sew hair bow. The result was a precious bow in half the time!
