Supplies:

  • craft wire
  • scissors or wire cutters

Steps:

  1. Create a loop for the center and hold it in place with your thumb and forefinger.
  2. make center loop
     
  3. Twist the ribbon (so that the right side is up) as you create your first loop of the bow. Make this loop fairly small.
  4. make loop 1
     
  5. Then twist the ribbon again (so that the right side is up) and create a loop of the same size on the other side.
  6. make loop 2
     
  7. Repeat steps 2 and 3, making the loops a little bigger each time until you have the size and fullness that you want.

  9. Cut a piece of craft wire and wrap it through the center loop and twist the ends tightly together in the back. NOTE: If you want to have tails hang down from your bow, cut a piece of ribbon, fold it in half and wire it to the back of the bow. Finish off the ends by cutting them at an angle or remove a triangle of ribbon from the center to create two points.
  10. wrap wire through center
     
    cutting the ends
     
  11. Now arrange the loops to make the bow more rounded and puff up the loops. Use the ends of the craft wire to attach the bow.
