Make a Classic Bow in 4 Easy Steps

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


Classic Bow

Likely one of the first bows you learned to tie, the classic bow is still a timeless gift topper.

Step 1

Being careful not to twist the ribbon, fold the ribbon length back and forth, forming two loops at the top and one loop in the bottom center.

Step 2

Cross the top right loop over the top left loop.

Step 3

Fold what is now the left loop down behind the right loop and then through the bottom loop.

Step 4

Pull the top loops taut, forming a knot in the center of the bow. Trim the tails and notch the ends.
