DIY: 1 minute doily bow

I like bows a lot. I sew them quite frequently. (ahem)
They're super easy. Especially this one.
I am not exaggerating when I say that this bow takes 1 minute to make.
And it's as cute as it is easy.

Materials: Doily, Ribbon, Bobby Pin.

 Start pinching you're doily between your fingers at one end and work your way across...

Until you reach the other side..it should look like this.

Take a scrap piece of ribbon and double knot it around your doily

 Add a bobby pin...

 Now you have yourself a fun lacey hair bow.

or you can stick in a safety pin and you'll have a faux bow tie. :) 

I urge you to try
and don't forget to show me your variations :)
