Now that you have three types of ribbon bows you can make, it’s time to decide what bows you want to make more of! I personally love hair bows the best but there are also plenty of times that I’ll use the decorative bows, especially around the holidays. Christmas is a GREAT time to showcase all your beautiful ribbon decorations around your house, on wreaths, on your Christmas tree, and even on all your gifts and presents.

Besides that, I’ve taught many people how to make tulle bows for weddings and parties. Believe it or not, there are DOZENS of ways to make simple tulle bows, not just one technique. Tulle can be found on rolls in almost any craft store, which is my favorite way to purchase them. You can also buy tulle on a roll but then you have to cut it and that can be challenging to make sure it is even and the edges all look great.

Are you ready to start now? All you need to do is grab the supplies at a craft store and you’ll be ready to begin. The basic supplies for bowmaking are as follows: ribbon, hot glue gun, craft wire, and a good pair of scissors. Pretty simple, huh? The great thing about this craft is that minimal materials are required so it is cheap to start creating. Unlike many other crafts that can be time consuming and expensive to start, bow making is simple and can cost under $10 to begin creating. Hope you have enjoyed this videos which show how to make a bow.
