If I'm right about what you're thinking of...

... You first start off with a rectangular shape piece of fabric with all the edges nicely trimmed/sewn. Then what you want to do is fold it like an accordion/fan. Next, with a strip of fabric, bind it in the middle to get that bow shape and sew or either glue it down so that the strip of fabric can hold the folds in shape. Open up the edges and mold the folds to the desired look of your bow, then you can place your bow on a snap clip, or what have you.
Hope this helps.

You can also take a long rectangle, with finished edges (mine were made of t-shirt parts, so they're all raw edges), then sew the two shorter ends together, making a circle (think broccoli rubber band). Tack it down in the middle (with a qiuck stitch or hot glue) and stitch a little band piece over the tack-ing.  For the ones I made over the summer, using barrette clips, I hot glued the center of the bow onto a barrette, then wrapped the center band around the bottom of the barrette as well.
The black one shows the underside of the barrette, with the cross bar piece taken off, for a better view, the pink and black has a better contrast to see the band piece, and the blue one just has a button on it, because you can put fun stuff on the band before attaching it to the bow, like the skull picture you had...

You can get barrette clips and probably other kinds as well at Joann's or Hobby Lobby, or whatever your usual craft store is... Bows are fun!!  ...yeah, that's all I got!

The yarn seduced me, I swear!!

If the bows are small, you can use a wide ribbon for the base of a bow and some thin to enlace the centre. I think you can glue them on some cheap, normal hair pins or barrettes, but the elastic sewn in a circle will also be a good base.
