• Fork Bow Tutorial

    Learn how to make a pretty bow using just a plain old fork! Once you see how easy these are to make, you'll never buy bows again!
    These work best with double sided ribbon, but you can use any ribbon you like. A note about the fork- you can opt to use a regular sized fork to make small bows, or a Serving fork (much like you'd use for serving a roast) to make larger bows.

    You'll Need
    A Length of Ribbon
    a short piece of ribbon
    a Fork

    Place the short ribbon in the center of the fork, weave the second length of ribbon around the fork at least 4 times. Carefully flip the fork over and tie
    the short ribbon. Remove the bow from the fork by gently sliding it off.

    Then fluff each bow section. The end of a pencil works great to slip in between and fluff the pieces out.

    That's it! Were you expecting something more difficult? Now check out how to make a Safe out of a Teddy Bear!

      Larger ribbon works well on a large salad serving fork. You can use this same method with giant ribbon on a pitch fork.

      This certainly sounds easy, I will try this. I think it would make a cute gift. You could put the gift inside the jar & then they could use it for a storage of their choosing. Thanks for the idea.

      I want to try the safe and the bow. I tend to be a little "bow challenged".

      I'm newbie and am enjoying all the different information I'm finding on your site.
      This bow idea is GREAT! I used to make bows at Christmas on one of those little plastic bow makers but, this looks much easier. Thanks so much!

      I've got to try this. I make Christmas Wreaths and have a hard time making bows. Will use a large fork for larger bows.
