I recently taught my Wreath of the Month Club members how to hand tie this exact bow, which is faster than using a machine but some members suffer from arthritis in the hands and I wanted to show them a less strenuous way to make a bow with two ribbons. Enjoy!

Steps for Making a Double Ribbon Bow with the EZ Bow Maker
Step 1 – Setup EZ Bow Maker
If you haven’t yet, begin by setting up your EZ Bow Maker. Follow the instructions to hammer in the wooden dowels with a hammer or rubber mallet.
Step 2 – Prep Ribbon
Unroll lots of the ribbon from two rolls of ribbon (two different styles).
Take one end of each of the ribbons and stack one on top of the other.
Step 3 – Make Bow
Gather a section of the ribbons and place it between the dowels.
Lay ribbon along the EZ Bow Maker and measure out 7 inches for a loop.
Bring it back between the dowels while twisting the ribbon. Next measure out a loop on the other side (7 inches) and once again bring it back between the dowels and twist.
Once you have three 7 inch loops on each side, make two 6 inch loops on each side, once again twisting as you bring it back between the dowels.
Move the 6 inch loops around to form an “x”.
Following the same process, make a 5 inch loop on each side. I call these the rabbit ears.
Next, lift the bow out of the EZ Bow Maker. Wrap a piece of florist wire around the center of the bow.
Fluff and shape the bow loops and then twist the wire to tighten in the back.
