You all know I love a good DIY project, and when it takes less then 5 minutes and requires no sewing (for my mom who is not so handy with a needle and thread) it’s just an added bonus!
So for Easter this year my mom helped me whip up some quick DIY Bowties that I can wear when all my family comes to visit on Sunday. They’re so fun and easy to make that I can’t even decide which one to wear!
5 Minute No Sew DIY Easter Bowtie for your Pet
What you need:
- Scissors or Rotary cutter
- Iron (optional)
Step 1: Cut a long rectangular piece of fabric (Mom cut mine 5″ x 19″ to make my small bow tie). The longer and wider you make your rectangle the bigger your bow tie will be. You will also want to cut a thinner strip of fabric, mine was 2″ x 19″, to be used later.
Step 2: Using your large rectangular piece of fabric fold in the edges. You can use an iron to crease the folds if need be.
Step 3: Next fold your ends towards the center so that they just overlap where the center mark would be.
Step 4: Fold the entire piece of fabric in half.
Step 5: With the front of your bowtie facing you, crease it into 3 even pleats. Then place a clothespin on it to hold it in place while you move to the next step.
Step 6: Using the small strip of fabric you cut, fold in the edges.
Step 7: Wrap the thin strip of fabric around your bowtie and tie in a double knot in the back.
Step 8: Tie your Bowtie around one of your dogs collars, trimming any excess fabric if need be.
You’re now ready for an Easter Party!
Now if I could only decide which one to wear!
P.S. I expect to see lots of dogs in dapper bowties this Easter! Post your dog in their best bowtie on my Facebook wall so we can enjoy them all!
