I’ve gotten more than a few requests for a tutorial on how I tie my bows; this is definitely an area where a video explains things so much more easily than simple text.
Using this tutorial, your bows will look like this:

A few tips:
- -Start with more ribbon than you think you need. I use 36″ (1 yard) for this particular bow; I’d rather cut a little off when I’m finished than not have enough.
- -I use 1.5″ ribbon most frequently and usually buy it at Hobby Lobby when it’s 50% off.
- -Using a dab of Fray Check on the ends keeps them from fraying over time.
- -Practice makes perfect! After you tie a few, you’ll be able to make a perfect bow every time.
Now, here’s the video. Just leave a comment if you have any questions and I’ll try to answer them.
Thanks for stopping by!
