Grab a pair of scissors and gather your favorite style of ribbons or tulle for this simple winter holiday craft. Thick or thin, wired or non-wired. If you can loop it and cut it, you can use it! The perfect bow is just five simple steps away.
Ribbon or tulle
For small bows, use approximately 3 feet of ribbon or tulle.
For large bows, use approximately 11 feet of ribbon or tulle.
Tip: Create five to seven loops of ribbon to make larger, fuller bows.
Bows are the perfect embellishment for even the most basic item. This winter holiday season, make your home inviting and festive by incorporating these simple, but beautiful bows into your home décor. Take advantage of their versatility and create bows in different sizes and use different materials to add unique, festive flair.
Tip: Read our Deck Your Door with Holiday Sparkle article for more outdoor décor ideas.
Tip: Instead of using a 6" piece of ribbon to tie in the center of the bow, measure around your chair to make sure there is enough ribbon to tie around it and adjust length accordingly.
With a little creativity, you can transform your humble home décor into a winter holiday wonderland. These inexpensive bows are easy to make and easy to use for a variety of projects. You can even turn remnants of ribbon or tulle into the perfect winter holiday embellishment. After the festivities are over, store them with the rest of your decorations to use next year.
