Step 1: Choose Your Ribbon
Choose the ribbon color you'd like to use for your project.
Step 2: Make a Loop
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.
Step 3: Create Additional Loops
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.
Step 4: Pinch the Ribbon
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.
Step 5: Wrap the Ribbon
Take some your ribbon and wrap it around the base you just fastened with your twist tie. This will hide the twist tie.
Step 6: Fluff the Bow
Fluff up your loops to form your floral bow. You can arrange them to your liking.
Step 7: Trim the Tails
Cut your ribbon tails to your liking and attach your floral bow to your floral arrangement.
