DIY Burlap Gift Bow
21 Friday Dec 2012
Christmas is almost here so it’s time to get your last minute gifts wrapped and under the tree and what better way to add a little character and love to your tree than with homemade gift bows. I decided to wrap my presents in burlap and white, so I wrapped some of the gifts with Burlap wrapping paper with White Ribbon and others with white wrapping paper and Burlap Gift Bows. I loved the way the Gift Bows turned out and had to share a tutorial. I hope you enjoy!
Here is what you will need:
- Hot Glue Gun
Step 1: You will need to cut 9 pieces of burlap that is between 1/2 to 3/4 inches wide. Here is the breakdown of how long each piece will need to be
- 3 Pieces that are 10″ long
- 3 Pieces that are 9″ long
- 2 Pieces that are 8″ long
- 1 Piece that is 6″ long
Step 2: Take one piece of ribbon and and loop both ends around so that they meet in the middle. It will look like a figure 8 then glue the fabric in place using your hot glue gun.
Repeat this step for all of the remaining pieces of burlap except for the 6″ piece
Step 3: Take the 6″ piece and make it into a loop and then glue it in place (This is for the center of the bow)
Step 4: Start by gluing on of your 10″ loops on top of another 10″ ribbon
Step 5: Glue the last 10″ loop on top of the previous 10″ loop and then go to the 9″ loops, 8″ loops and lastly glue the 6″ loop to the center (make sure you alternate directions as you go)
And there you have it, a quick, easy and FABULOUS Homemade Burlap Gift Bow
