How To Make a Burlap Bow for Your Christmas Tree Topper
If you are crafty or you want to try to save some money and you have time to spare this holiday, you could of course, try to make your own DIY burlap bow tree topper.
You will need to buy plenty of burlap ribbon before you get started. Depending on the size of your bow you plan on making you will want to buy at least 2 spools as it’s always better to have more than run out of ribbon.
And of course if you have extra ribbon you can always use it wrap around your Christmas tree or make smaller bows for your tree or other Christmas decorations.
You will also need floral wire to hold your bow together. Floral wire works best because it is thin but strong and can blend in with the bow.
One tip that I have for people that may not be so crafty or who don’t have much practice making bows, is to get yourself a Bowdabra Tool. This is a simple tool that allows just about anyone to make professional looking bows in only a few minutes.
You can even use the tool for bows for your Christmas presents and other decorations year round as you will definitely get your money from it (it doesn’t cost much to begin with).
