You mastered tying your shoelaces as a kid and have never looked back. To Make a Bow, especially with ribbon, is another story. Don’t be intimidated—it’s a lot easier than it looks. Remember that bunny ear trick you were taught years ago? It still applies when making bows!
Bows are the perfect topper to gifts and a lovely addition to your wedding day decor. You can tie bows with any kind of ribbon or even make the bows out of paper. From simple bows (perfect for flower girl sashes and wedding programs) to more elaborate bows with wired ribbon (a pretty finishing touch for wreaths and pew bows), we’ve got you covered. Check out our how-to video to make a bow and read on for step-by-step, bow-tying instructions.
