These DIY Bows Will Add Pizazz to All Your Gifts

This holiday season, impress all your friends and family with your gift wrapping skills. We can all appreciate a present that’s meticulously wrapped. These three DIY bows will take your present above and beyond. Just follow this easy guide below, and you’ll be the envy of every party.


This is the simplest bow to make. All you have to do is make a loop at the center of the ribbon and wrap the loose ends over the loop. Finish by pushing the ends through the loops and pull the ribbon tightly. That’s all there is to it.


The sash is just a tiny bit more difficult than the classic bow. Just fold the ends of the ribbon into the center and leave the right side facing out. Continue by wrapping the center with another ribbon and securing it with glue. Make the tails of the ribbon by gluing one or two more ribbons under the center of the bow.


Out of the three bows, this is the fanciest, but it’s still easy to make. Fold the lengths of the ribbon accordion-style stacking the ribbon. You can add as many layers as you’d like; more layers create more bows. Then cinch the middle stack with wire and secure it by twisting it. The last step is covering the wire with ribbons and adding glue.
