Christmas Wrapping | Decorative Bows


Over the past few days I've been finishing up my Christmas wrapping and so today, I thought that it would be a good idea to share how I've been decorating them. Bows look so effective and some can be really simple to do but look great attached to a present. I've chosen three of my favourites which take under five minutes and require very little effort! Read on to check out what they are...

Pinwheel Bow

Step 1
Wrap a medium sized ribbon back on itself as seen above and secure with a clip down the middle

Step 2
 With a needle and thread, sew down the middle and cut the thread leaving at least one inch left

Step 3
Pull the end of the thread until the ribbon bunches together, tie off and knot

Step 4
Sew a button onto the middle of the bow to hide the thread

Double Bow

Step 1
Cut three sections of thin ribbon as seen above

Step 2
 Fold the two smallest pieces and place the smallest on top of the biggest and then both on the long ribbon. Tie them together with cord or string

Step 3
Pull down the long ribbon and cut triangles out of the ends

Ballerina Bow

Step 1
Cut three lengths of large ribbon as seen above

Step 2
 Loop the medium sized ribbon around itself

Step 3
Pinch the middle of the loop and sew into place with a needle and thread

Step 4
Pinch the large sized ribbon and place it underneath the bow. Attach it with the thread

Step 5
Loop the smallest sized ribbon around the middle of the bow

Step 6
Sew into place and cut triangles out of the ends of the ribbon


Have you made any bows this year?

  18. The double bow is my absolute favourite, what a beautiful design! I love the material you've used as well - so traditionally festive :) I love gift wrapping in general (especially at Christmas!) and so will be keeping your bow suggestions in mind for sure for that extra special touch..

  19. Ooooh, thank you so much for that! I loved the double bow and the ballerina bow! It's a coincidence, most of my presents are already packed, but I have to pack 2 or 3 today - and will use these bows! Hope you have a very nice Christmas!

  32. URGENT LOVE-SPELL TO GET YOUR EX BOYFRIEND/GIRLFRIEND BACK FAST.
    Hi everyone,
    I'm so excited. My ex-boyfriend is back after a breakup, I’m extremely happy that will are living together again. my boyfriend of a 4yr just broke up with me and am 30 weeks pregnant. I have cried myself to sleep most of the nights and don’t seem to concentrate during lectures sometimes I stay awake almost all night thinking about him and start to cry all over again. Because of this I end up not having energy for my next day’s classes, my attendance has dropped and am always in uni and on time. Generally he is a very nice guy, he ended it because he said we were arguing a lot and not getting along. He is right we’ve been arguing during the pregnancy a lot .After the break up I kept ringing him and telling him I will change. I am in love with this guy and he is the best guy I have ever been with. I’m still hurt and in disbelief when he said he didn’t have any romantic feelings towards me anymore that hurt me faster than a lethal syringe. He texts me now and then mainly to check up on how am doing with the pregnancy, he is supportive with it but it’s not fair on me, him texting me as I just want to grieve the pain and not have any stress due to the pregnancy. i was really upset and i needed help, so i searched for help online and I came across a website that suggested that Dr Azeez can help solve marital problems, restore broken relationships and so on. So, I felt I should give him a try. I contacted him and he told me what to do and i did it then he did a spell for me. 17 hours later, my bf came to me and apologized for the wrongs he did and promise never to do it again. Ever since then, everything has returned back to normal. I and my bf are living together happily again.. All thanks to Dr Azeez if you have any problem contact Dr Azeez now and i guarantee you that he will help you.
    Here’s his contact. Email him at: Email him at: Azeezabdulahi12@gmail.com
    you can also call him or add him on what’s-app: +2348160153829
