Christmas wired bow Tutorial

For this Christmas I decorated the tree and the lamp shade with few wired ribbon bows. I made them after seeing the tutorial by Judy of DIY by Design.
How to make a wired bow
I used Wired ribbon and Balloon string(you can use floral wiring) to make them. In the tutorial, Judy had used a cardboard to wrap the ribbon instead I used a DVD.

Start wrapping the wired ribbon lengthwise on the DVD as shown below. Continue wrapping based on the no. of petals you want. I wrapped until the entire roll was completed.

Remove the wrapping from the DVD with out disturbing the wrap and tie a knot with floral wiring/Balloon string in the middle as shown below

Start pulling the loops one by one as shown below.

Tada! the Bow is complete and now decorate as you wish
