Cost/TimeIt took our designer less than 10 minutes to create the basic bow. The material cost is approximately $26 for enough supplies to make about 4 -5 large bows!
A Second Version- Christmas Bow with wire ball accents.
Adding ribbon tails and metallic wire balls to the basic bow only takes a few more minutes, but adds
lots of sparkle and interest. Here are is how you create this look from the basic double Christmas bow.
Add Wire Balls and a Ribbon Tail:
Cut your desired ribbon- approximately 3-4 foot long pieces. Lay out length wise. Tie wire balls onto ends of the ribbon.
In the center of each piece of ribbon use aluminum craft wire or the tinsel roping to gather up the tails. Twist the wire so about half of the ribbon lies on either side. Stagger the wire ball height to create interest. Use this wire to attach the tails onto the back of the bow.
We used three pieces of red ribbon with a green wire ball on each end (6 wire balls total) and two additional tails of the striped deco mesh ribbon as accent.
