How to make a Valentine’s Day bow wreath: Step-by-step tutorial
1. Measure your ribbon
The first step is to measure your ribbon.
Cut five pieces of ribbon, each 27” long. You’ll want three 2 ½’’ ribbons and two 1 ½’’ ribbons.
2. Create your first loop
Measure out 6 inches of your first 2 ½ inch wide ribbon, pinching and pleating at the 6-inch mark.
Then, measure out 12 inches to create a 6-inch loop, and then pinch and pleat into your thumb.
Make sure that the good side of the ribbon is facing forwards.
3. Repeat twice
Complete the same steps as above with your next 2 ½ inch wide ribbon, adding it to your working bow.
Make sure everything is twisted and secured, with the loops at the top, one on each side of the thumb.
Complete these steps again for your last 2 ½ inch wide ribbon, this time completing another loop below your thumb.
4. Repeat in reverse
Finally, we’re going to use the exact same steps in reverse for both of your 1 ½ inch ribbons.
You want to do these ribbons in reverse so that you have even-lengthed streamers throughout your bow.
5. Fluff and finish your Valentine’s Day bow
Make sure all of your ribbon streamers are to the back of your bow, and all of your loops are on the top. Then, take some florist wire and secure it around the middle of your bow.
Fluff your loops, ensure everything is in position, and twist your bow to secure it tightly.
And that’s all there is to it! An easy (and beautiful) Valentine’s Day wreath bow!
