How to Make a Chrysanthemum Bow

Bows add polish to packages, wreaths, and all kinds of holiday decorating, and these beauties do it with ease.

Chrysanthemum Bow

It's easier than you think to make a perfect bow. With some ribbon, cutting, and fluffing, you can recreate this chrysanthemum bow.

Step 1

Form a ribbon circle that's approximately the width of your bow. Ours measures about 5 inches. Continue winding ribbon around for the number of loops you want. We wound our ribbon 9 times.

Step 2

Flatten the loops. Using scissors, make diagonal cuts at each corner.

Step 3

Refold the flattened loops, matching the notches in the center. Firmly tie a thin piece of ribbon or wire around the center.

Step 4

Make evenly spaced, narrow cuts into the loops. Then, working on one side of the bow, pull out the innermost loop and twist it to the right. Pull out the next innermost loop and twist it to the left. Continue in this way until all loops on one side have been twisted. Repeat for the other side of the bow.

Step 5

Arrange the loops as needed to make your bow. Use the thin ribbon or wire ends to attach the bow to your project. Note: Use only nonfraying ribbon for this bow.
