We are back today with another installment in our “Back To Basics” series where we bring you a tutorial about a simple and easy DIY task. You can see all the other basics from the other blogs in the series at the end of this post.

Today I wanted to share how easy it is to make a bow to garnish a wreath or a floral arrangement, a package and my favorite–to use as a Christmas Tree topper. You can see mine below–last year I used a bow jazzed up with feathers on one of our trees.

These bows are very easy to make, all the supplies you need are below.

Wired ribbon of your choice {the thicker the larger and wider your bow will be}

Scissors

Floral Ribbon

The trick to these bows is to make a series of loops, each time twisting the ribbon back over itself. I know that doesn’t make sense, so the easiest way to show you is via video, so take a quick look at how I did it below.

You can use these bows anywhere, I like to update our door wreath with a new bow seasonally. Here is our current Fall door decor below, it may still be in the 80’s here but I am ready!

  1. So beautiful! I definitely need a few lessons on pretty-bow-making! My aunt works for Tiffany & she has tried numerous times to teach me how to tie a bow with a satin ribbon…#noluck… I’m definitely going to give yours a shot – I want to make one for the holidays for sure! Thank you 😉

  2. Looks beautiful, Amy, and you make it look easy! 🙂 Years ago, my daughter worked for The Container Store. Since I am “bow making challenged”, she invited me to attend a class there at the store. Another employee conducted it and gave great instructions. Do you think it worked for me? No! I think my daughter was mortified and she still teases me about it. By the way, she does the bows for my Christmas tree toppers! 🙂 She’s extremely creative and talented and her home is stunning! Maybe one day she will allow me to share it.
