For some of you, tying a bow may be child’s play. But if you join the ranks of people who don’t know where to begin when decorating for the holidays, the simple bow was created just for you (or BY you, I should say).
A simple holiday bow on your door or mailbox is an easy first step towards getting your house in holiday shape. And if you are on a budget, let us show you how to tie a bow yourself!
Five Easy Steps
Step 1: Fold the ribbon in half to find the center. Make a loop with one side of the ribbon.
Step 2: Wrap the other half of the ribbon around the loop that is already made.
Step 4: Tighten the loops and straighten into a pretty bow.
Step 5: Snip the ends into cornered edges.
It’s now ready for your mailbox, front door, porch railing or mantle!
Hint: Choose thicker ribbon for a more formal bow.
