I love this homemade bow. I want to turn my front door in to a present this year instead of having a wreath. I just hope when I make mine I can make it as well as this one and I can get all the materials I need to make it as well.

What an interesting way to make ribbons. I struggled with making ribbons at first and my sister taught me a different technique using a fork but it wouldnt hold. I bet if I tried adding some hit glue I would stop buying ready made bows last minute to pin to my crafts and gifts.

This is such a useful DIY tutorial! I am definitely going to try this out this weekend for my cousin's birthday gift.
