Step 6: Use your needle and thread to sew up the center of the looped ribbon.

Step 7: Pull the thread tight and pinch the center.

Step 8: Wrap the thread around the bow, pull tight, and tie a knot to secure.

Step 9: Repeat steps 4-8 with the red ribbon.

Step 10: Glue the red bow to the center of the barrette.

Step 11: Glue the damask bow to the red bow at the center.

Step 12: Glue the small red piece of ribbon to the center of the barrette on the bottom.

Step 13: Wrap the red ribbon around the entire bow and glue it down to the bottom of the barrette.

Step 14: Replace the center piece of the metal barrette.

Step 15: Glue a large rhinestone to the center of the bow.
