Edited to add: Try to use wired ribbon because it holds it's shape better. It is so much easier to work with.
Hi everyone! My friend Marla from http://alwaysnesting.blogspot.com/ asked me if I could do a tutorial on how I make my bows. I’m sure there are different ways to make bows but this is how I make mine.
I am linking this post to

Please visit these two lovely blogs I recently found. :)
This is how I made the bow for the topper on my Christmas tree. You can see my Christmas tree here. http://mybellarose.blogspot.com/2009/12/our-tree-is-ready-to-receive-gifts.html
Please excuse the quality of some of my pictures. My 11 yr old took the pictures as I was making the bow.
With the same wire you used to make the bow, tie it to the top of your tree. You might have to fold the top branch first though. If your ceilings are high enough, then you probably don’t need to. Once you place it on top of the tree, work on your bow so it looks perfect. I then placed streamers all around the top of my tree but underneath the bow and left them curled up.
Marla, I hope you understood my tutorial. *blush*
Let me know if you have any questions. :)
