How to Make a Cute Flower Hair Comb from Ribbon

Depending on what you add to the bare hair combs, you can create decorative hair combs in various styles. To make cute hair combs, ribbon flowers may be the first choice by most people especially little girls. I make a flower hair comb by sewing a two-layered ribbon flower with two lovely heart-patterned ribbons. The reason why I choose to sew the flower and hair comb instead of gluing is that I can remove the stitches when I make it crooked. Check out this lovely tutorial for inspiration!
