I have never taken a bow-making class, nor do I have one of those bow-making devices, so I just decided to take a stab at it. Using wire-edged ribbon helps for bow-making novices such as myself. The trick: simply gather same-sized loops -- I think I did 5-7 -- then twist, and leave a few inches at both ends. Cut ends diagonally and not at uneven lengths, for a more casual, less-contrived look. Attach with floral wire to bottom, top, side or wherever you desire.
