When you wish to create a Halloween themed hair bow for your child, the first thing that you will want to take into consideration is the color scheme of the Halloween costume that your little girl desires to wear. Many Halloween costumes, such as the witch, pirate, Indian, geisha, vampire, and dark angel will gear around the color schemes of black, silver, gold, and red. Costumes that are related to famous cartoon characters, cheerleading, princess designs, and similar costumes will often focus on brighter colors, like pale blue, pinks, gold’s, and more.
Once you have established the color of the costume that your child is wearing, you are now ready to purchase your supplies. It is important to select at least two different color ribbons in order to create your Halloween themed hair bow. This will help make the hair bow unique, and suited to the color scheme of the overall Halloween costume. You will also need to purchase a pack of hair berets that is appropriate to the type of hair that your daughter has. You will want to try to find berets that are black in color. This will ensure that everything matches. A hot glue gun and glue stick will also be required.
