Just the mere mention of bows sends some of you running for the hills. STOP! This is super easy bow will have you looking like a rockstar in less than five minutes and not a ton of expensive ribbon.
We start off all of our bows with 2.5 inches of wired burlap ribbon. It holds it’s shape well and makes a nice background for just about any bow.
Then we pick 2-3 different 2.5″ ribbons and one thin ribbon (almost always from Dollar Tree to save some money).
Cut 2 of each ribbon, about 5″ long each. We V cut our ends before we start laying them out.
Once that is complete we just lay our burlap out in an X pattern. Then do the same with each ribbon on top of the burlap ribbon.
Then layout a piece of thin ribbon on top (as shown) and flip the packet over.
Tie ribbons in a knot, tightly. Fluff and add to your door hangers and wreaths.
Still, stumped? I made a video to help.
Thanks for showing us how to make your cute bows!
Your bows are easy to make and so cute on the projects! Bows can be frightening for some.
