How to Make the Perfect Bow


Follow the instructions below to create the perfect bow for your Christmas tree or any occasion.

Cut your ribbon of choice to the desired length. For 50mm wide ribbon we recommend a length of approximately 800mm. For 200mm wide ribbon cut to a length of 1200mm, cut each end in a V shape to create the tail.

Fold the ribbon as per the first diagram below, with the best side of the ribbon on the outside.

Gather together centre of ribbon loop and centre of ribbon crossover as per second diagram.

Twist green florist wire around this central point to hold the bow secure. Add balls or decorations with florist wire to the centre of the bow to create the perfect posies for your tree.

Note: the best bow is created when using wired ribbon. This ribbon with bendable wire incorporated into the outside edges of the ribbon and gives you the ability to shape the ribbon into the perfect bow.

The Prop House and VM+ stock a large range of wired ribbon as well as green florist wire.
