mega ribbon chair tie back

Make a statement with this ultra elegant embellishment.
Step 1
Measure and cut a 90" length of mega ribbon.
 
Tie a traditional bow measuring at least 11" in width. Leave the ribbon ends long for added drama.
 
Trim the ribbon ends into a snake’s tongue by folding the ends of the ribbon in half and cutting diagonally with scissors. Set bow aside. 
Step 2
Measure and cut three 5” lengths of 24 gauge silver wire using wire cutters.
 
(Facing the back of the chair.) Leave the rhinestone chain on the spool and wind the chain around the top left corner knob until the chain meets and secure the chain ends together using a 5” length of wire. 
 
Step 3
Proceed to drape the chain down the back of the chair and connect the chain to the opposite side of the back of the chair in the bottom right corner. Wind the chain around until it meets and secure together again with another 5” length of wire. Trim excess wire with wire cutters. Use image as a guide.
 
Cut the rhinestone chain from the spool where you have wired the chain together, using wire cutters. 
Step 4
Measure and cut a 3" length of rhinestone chain. Set aside. 
 
Hold your bow in one hand and the remaining 5" length of wire in another. Hold the length of wire on the back of the bow in the center and place a small dab of hot glue on top of the wire to hold in place. Each wire end should be behind each bow loop. You will use this wire to attach the bow to the chair. 
Step 5
Take the 3" length of rhinestone chain and wrap the chain around the center of the bow and secure the chain in the back using a large amount of hot glue. Hold the chain together for several seconds until glue dries. Trim excess chain with wire cutters.
 
Wrap the wire ends on the back of your bow around the bottom right corner of the chair where you secured your chain.
