Measure about 8 inches of your wire ribbon. This will be one of the tails for your bow. Next, make a loop with your index and thumb and hold it tight.

Hold the loop securely with your fingers.

Now that you have your first loop, make seven more loops. Have each loop get larger and then decrease in size as you go along. You should have a total of eight loops.

Pinch the base of your ribbon inward and fasten with a twist tie. Make sure it is secure so your loops do not unravel.

Note: You can skip the twist-tie step and just tie a knot with your extra ribbon. Just make sure you tie it securely.

Do not let your loops unravel.

Take some your ribbon and wrap it around the base you just fastened with your twist tie. This will hide the twist tie.

Wrap ribbon around the base.
