Do you have difficulty making pretty bows? Well here's a fix for that! Watch this video to see how we made this hand tied wreath bow. It's made with Halloween ribbon, but of course you could use any style of ribbon or width. This ribbon was 2.5" in length and a thick glittered satin ribbon.
We used the Pro Bow bow maker to hold the ribbon which made it easier.
Did you know that we have over 1,000 ribbon styles in stock at Trendy Tree! Ribbons for all occasions, events, holidays and everyday crafting. Practice making bows using inexpensive ribbon. Tie a bow, untie it and practice, practice, practice.
Practically all the ribbon we stock is wired ribbon because wired ribbon is much easier to work with.
You can use this same hand tie technique to make hair bows. But, the ribbons we sell and the tutorials we do are geared toward crafting bows for wreaths, centerpieces, gift packages, lantern toppers and more.
The Pro Bow is one tool that we use in our crafting. We also use the Bowdabra, and E-Z Bowmaker. Of course, we free hand bows also without using any type of tool. A completely free handed bow is harder for me to make, but with practice once can develop the skill. Those folks that are expert at it, make it look so easy!
You can purchase the Bowdabra on Amazon and the E-Z Bowmaker on Trendy Tree.
My problem always lies in keeping the loops the same size. By using the Pro Bow to make this hand tied wreath bow, the problem.
