We are tying up the loose ends of this holiday season with everything you need to know about ribbons and bows! How to make DFC’s signature bows and the countless ways they can be used to embellish your home and even gift giving!
DFC’s “Signature Bow” Tutorial:1: Use a narrow ribbon to tie the rest of your ribbons together. 2-3: Start with making one shoe string bow. 4: Make a second shoe string bow with either the same or different style ribbon.
5-8: Tie the two shoe string bows together using your very first narrow ribbon.
9-12: Keep adding shoe string bows and tying them together with the first narrow ribbon. Finish the bow off with another shoe string bow using the very first narrow ribbon. You can curl the tails on the last ribbon for a finished look.13: To finish off the tails of the bow, fold the tail in half and cut the end off at an angle. And there you go! DFC’s Signature Bow!
These bows are great for any home decorating ! Use them in the tree, use your bow on a wreath or in a garland, instead of running ribbon through the garland. Top off a glass jar in your kitchen or embellish a lamp outside. The possibilities are endless!These bows are perfect for gift wrapping and other sorts of packages–even bottles! You can also use smaller/narrow ribbons to make a smaller version of this signature bow. These smaller bows are great for embellishing ornaments to give as gifts or to really make an ornament stand out on a tree. This is a great idea for an ornament exchange.
