How to Make a Bow

I saw this pin on Pinterest and decided to try it out.  I actually modified the instructions a bit, and I think I made it even easier than it already was.  This would be a good way to use up some of your leftover Christmas supplies while dressing up a hostess gift for a New Year’s party.



Wired ribbon

Twist tie or craft wire

Rubber band (optional)




With the right side of the ribbon facing out, start folding the ribbon over on itself.  The more times you fold, the fuller the bow will be.

Hold a rubber band to the back (if you need it to attach the bow when you’re finished) and twist wire around the layers of ribbon.  Be sure to only twist the wire around one edge of the rubber band.

Tighten the wire, re-center it if needed, and fluff the loops of ribbon.

Cut the tails of ribbon to the same length, and use the rubber band to attach the ribbon to a gift.


See you in 2015!
