No gift basket is complete without a beautiful bow. Tied up with a lovely bow, your recipient will be even more excited to see what's inside.
Things You’ll Need
- Floral wire
Step 1: Choose Your Ribbon
Choose the ribbon you would like to use for your basket.
Step 2: Cut the Floral Wire
Cut a small piece of floral wire and set aside. This will be used later to hold your bow in place.
Step 3: Measure the Ribbon for the Bow
Measure your ribbon to the desired length, keeping in mind how big or small you want your bow.
Step 4: Make the Loop
Take the ribbon and pinch a loop together with your index finger and thumb. Leave some ribbon to make a tail.
Step 5: Twist the Ribbon and Make a Loop
Make another loop and pinch together with your index finger and thumb.
Step 6: Repeat the Loops
Repeat step 5 four more times to make a minimum of six loops. The more loops you make the larger your bow will be.
Step 7: Wrap the Floral Wire
Take the floral wire you cut earlier and wrap it around the center of your bow. Twist it together tight to hold the bow in place.
Step 8: Cut the Bow Tail
Cut your arranged ribbon from the spool at a diagonal for a finished bow.
Step 9: Attach the Bow to the Basket
Attach your bow by sticking the wire through the basket.
