3/8, 5/8, 7/8 and 1.5in Ribbon
Large alligator clip
Embellishments (beads, chains, bells, ect.)
Pony O, or Hair clip
These bows can be as big or as small and as elaborate or simple as you want. I'm going to go through the steps on how I made this particular one, then you can use your creative juices and make your own. Sound good? Let's go!
Then make a loop on the opposite side.
Your bow should look like this after your two loops:
At this point you should have four loops total.
Take your alligator clip and clamp down the middle. Then take your string and tie your bow tight.
Now cut your second "tail" that's still attatched to the roll off even with the first. And there you have it!
Next we are going to make one more Tails Down Bow. This time with only two loops, it should look just like a simple bow. I'm using 7/8in ribbon for this one. Try to make them as even as possible, but if they aren't it's not that big of a dea because it will be covered up.
Now we are going to make your "streamers". The measurements of the streamers will depend on how long your tails down bows are. Streamers are really great for using up your scrap ribbon, because they can be any length or size. Gather up 4-6 coordnating ribbons and place the middle of them all in your clip and tie them together.
Finally comes the assembly! The largest tails down bow will be in the back, then your streamers, and finally your small bow on top. Tie them all together, as tight as possible, with your thread. Take a 6in length of your 7/8in ribbon and tie it in a knot. The knot will be in the middle and your two long end will wrap around the bow. Glue in place then attatch to your clip.
