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.
