DIY Easy Bow

    1. Decide how wide you would like your bow.
    1. Fold the ribbon so you have double the chosen length then cut.
    1. Repeat step 2 with a slightly smaller piece of ribbon.
    1. Hot glue the edges together to make a loop. Do this with both pieces, so you have a big loop and a smaller loop.
    1. Cut a 3-4in piece of ribbon, then fold it in thirds, securing it with hot glue.
    1. Take your 2 loops and place them on top of each other then pinch them in the middle.
    1. Take your small piece of ribbon and hot glue it to the middle of the pinched piece.
    1. Wrap the small piece all the way around, hot glue in place, then cut the excess off.
    1. Next you want to decide how long you want the tail of your bow.
    1. Fold the ribbon so you have 2 equal length pieces.
    1. Lining the pieces of ribbon up evenly, cut a triangle shape out of the unfolded edge.
  1. Hot glue the tail to your top piece and you now have an easy bow!
