We are going to show you seven ways that you can make bows and flowers. This is a great way to add a little extra to your dance costume creating the perfect cherry on top of an already great costume.

The first way you can create a bow is with lace and tulle. This is a fantastic method to add some softness and three dimension to your costume.

The next bow is an excellent little simple bow that works in your hair or it works on your costume.

Another style of bow is the eight-loop bow. It is a great bow if you want something with a lot of punch and is simple to do.

Next, we have the puffy bow. This bow is perfect if you want to make your costume really sassy but is super easy to make.

A unique addition to your costume would be a ruched flower. This is one of our favorite bows to make because it can give your costume a little elegance and a little softness. The flowers are beautiful when you put them together in a bunch.

The next flower is a simple flower. The reason you might want to make this flower is because the movement of the flower will bring the attention to wherever you place it on your costume directing the judges’ attention to the spot you want them to look at.

The last flower we are going to show you how to make for your dance costume uses simple fabric petals to make. It is a lot like our simple flower but is a lot more three dimensional. It is a little more intricate but it is a great flower to bring a lot of attention to wherever you want the judges to focus.
