How to Make

  1. Take a sheet of felt and gather the middle together. Tie a short piece of yarn around the middle to hold it in position.
  2. Cut a long length of green ribbon (at least 60cm). Place the middle of the ribbon at the back of the bow then tie yarn around this too to hold it in place.
  3. Snip a band of orange felt 3cm wide, and stick with glue around the centre of the bow to hide the yarn. Make sure you leave the ribbon ends free.
  4. Decorate your bow tie with Glitter Stars Foam Stickers and foam letters to spell out 'Best Dad'.

Top Tip

Make sure you cut your ribbon so that it is long enough to tie in a bow around Dad's neck.
