5. Wire or hot-glue a red plaid bow to the top of the Christmas wreath. To make the bow, cut a 40-inch length of ribbon. Leaving a 10-inch tail, make a 5-inch loop, holding the ribbon between your thumb and index finger. Continue holding the ribbon, and make a second loop the same size in the opposite direction. Make another loop the same size in the same direction as the original loop. Wrap wire around the bow center, not trimming the wire ends. For the remaining bow tails, wire the remaining piece of ribbon to the center. Trim the ends of the wire and ribbon.
