How to Tie a Bow with Ribbon (Step By Step) 2023

You can make your bow look really pretty by tying a bow with ribbon.

Tie a Bow With Ribbon

Step 1: Tie the Bow Knot

To begin, take your ribbon and fold it in half lengthwise. Then, bring the two ends together so that they cross over each other. The crossing point should be about one-third of the way down from the top of the folded ribbon.

Step 2: Bring the Ends Together

Next, pull both ends of the ribbon through the crossing point until they meet at the bottom of the knot. This will create a loop on the back side of the knot.

Step 3: Pull the Loop Through the Crossing Point

Now, pull the loop through the crossing point. You’ll notice that the loop has formed into an X shape.

Step 4: Continue Adding Ribbons

To finish off the bow, add more ribbons by pulling them through the crossing point. Once all the ribbons are tied, trim any excess ribbon.

Tips & Tricks

  • Keeping the ribbon flat while tying the bow will prevent the bow from looking nice.
  • To make the bow last longer, use a glue gun or hot glue to secure the ends of the ribbon.
  • Use different colors of ribbon for a variety effect.
  • Try using different types of knots to give your bow some texture.
