Wanting to make a bow for my banner I wanted an easy way to make it. Not being the best bow maker, I needed something simple. I have seen this type of bow before but I didn’t really know how to do it. Being a creative person, I figured it shouldn’t be that hard. So I began trying to make this bow my way. I had hopes that it would turn out great. I had three different types of ribbons all the same size. So why not give it a try.  Farmhouse is my favorite style, so I wanted a bow that would fit in with my decor as well as the banner.

Getting It Figured Out

Not knowing where to begin, I got my three ribbon spools out. Yep, they were Farmhouse style, had to have some buffalo plaid! With a little bit of creativity and hope I began to try to figure out how I was going to make this “easy bow”. Knowing the bows were going to be between my banner, I figured out what length would work best.  Taking out my cutting matt and rotary cutter  I cut the first ribbon to six inches in length. Cutting ten pieces each, I needed five bows in total. If you are going to make a single bow I would suggest two pieces per bow.

Holding a piece of the buffalo plaid ribbon to my banner to make sure that this length would work, it checked out perfectly. Next, taking my cute farmhouse black ribbon, I used my rotary cutter and cut that to five inches in length.  I wanted to add color, textures, and different patterns. After all who doesn’t like something cute. I took the third ribbon, choosing a neutral farmhouse ribbon, and cut it with my rotary cutter to four inches. I hoped this would give me a layered look I was going for.

 

 

Getting That Layered Look

Now having all my ribbon cut to length, the next step was putting them all together. I took the six-inch ribbon and criss-crossed it. Creating an X shape.

Hopefully this pic will help, as a visual learner myself I hope it will.  Wanting a layered look, I knew it would take more than this. I took the five-inch ribbon next making a criss-crossed placement once again.

 

I took the four inched ribbon and did another criss-crossed placement knowing that it would add another layer for the look I was going for.

Coming Together Nicely

The layered farmhouse look was coming together nicely, and it wasn’t hard! I repeated that process once more using all three ribbon lengths, making more layers and getting closer to the look I was going for. I was excited and happy that it was coming out better than I thought. It really was easy,  and I am not a bow maker but this bow was starting to look so darn cute!

I was happy with the look, and excited to see it on my banner. Taking a piece of light gauge wire I tied it together. Twisting it to make sure it wouldn’t come apart. This was such an easy bow to make! It’s cute and so much fun to create!  I knew this would pull my banner together beautifully. Finally, I got the farmhouse layered look I was going for!

 

You can use this tyoe of easy bow on all types of projects! I hope this inspires you to make some easy messy bows of your own! Let me know what you think!
