christmas ribbon teardrop

Prices may vary instore and online.
Step 1
To create the giant bow with Christmas ribbon, start with a tail about 20" long.

NOTE: Create the bow while ribbon is still attached to the spool. Do not cut ribbon from the spool until the last step. 
Step 2
Make a loop with about 10” of ribbon. Pinch and twist after the first loop and make another loop the same size on the other side of the pinched area. This will be the center of the bow. 
Step 3
Continue making the loops until you have a total of 8 loops, or until the bow reaches the desired size.  
Step 4
Secure the center with a chenille stem and shape loops. 
Step 5
Cut the ribbon from the spool, leaving another 20" tail.
 
TIP: Cut the ends of the ribbon at an angle to avoid fraying. 
Step 6
In order to attach the bow to the swag, leave the ends of the chenille stem untrimmed. Attach bow at the top of the swag to allow the tails to cascade down.
