Now that we have seen many great handmade gift ideas all month long, don’t forget to top your gifts with a bow. But, sometimes bows can be tricky, tangled, and complicated. They don’t have to be!

I’ve got a few good tips that will end your bow hassles. Go grab a little ribbon, watch this video, and you will be on your way to making a perfect bow every time.

Have a little yarn and button to spare? Try my Petite Bundled Bow for another gift topping option that can double as a hair accessory.
