How to Make Summer Multi Ribbon Bow

Today in the wreath shop, we’re making a Summer Multi Ribbon Bow. I had the honor of making these bows on Carolina Pottery’s Facebook page and thought I would share the video with you here!

This simple bow is perfect for your summer wreaths or mailbox. I used 4 different ribbons, starting with a fun bee print for inspiration and then 3 other coordinating colors.

Supplies for Making a Summer Multi Ribbon Bow

Four Wired Ribbons (The one’s I used were from Carolina Pottery)
Scissors
Florist wire
Wire Cutters
craft mat

Steps for How to Make a Summer Multi Ribbon Bow

Step 1 – With your first ribbon, measure ribbon out 10 inches and pinch, this is the tail. 

Step 2 – Measure an additional 12 inches to make your first loop. Pinch it between your fingers to hold it in place. Then measure another 12 inches for your second loop and pinch. 

Step 3 – Take out your second ribbon and repeat the process above, first measuring out the tail, then the loops. 

Step 4 – Next, use your third ribbon to repeat the process. However, for this ribbon, use 10 inch loops. 

Step 5 – For your last ribbon, repeat the process making 10 inch loops again. 

Step 6 – With all of the ribbons pinched together in your hand, take out the florist wire and wrap around where you are pinching. Twist the wire until the bow is secure. Note: If you don’t have florist wire, you could use a pipe cleaner.

Step 7 – Reposition your loops so that everything is equal on both sides. Also make sure to fluff up the ribbon so it isn’t laying flat.

Step 8 – Lastly, dovetail the ends of the ribbons by folding the end and cutting at an angle. (optional)

    Hi,
    I have a question😀
    I started watching you back on 2017 and I learned so much from you.
    My question is Why are All the People that are on YouTube or FB TALKING SO Much ????
    All of the Hi’s and Comments about what they did that day.
    There is so much chatting I lose track of the steps and what they were saying .
    Is this just me or there others that feel the same?
    Thank you for letting me ask this 😊

      It depends on the instructor, but a lot of instructors want to get to know their community better so they ask engaging questions.
