It's Beginning To Look A Lot Like Christmas....

I can't believe that December is only 2 days away.... This year seems to have flown by! Not that I'm complaining as I have some really exciting things coming up. CHRISTMAS IS ONLY 27 DAYS AWAY! As you can probably tell I am so excited and I've already put up my little tree.

However, last year's decorations aren't quite making the cut this year - so I decided to make a few myself! These bows are really easy to make so I thought I'd show you how to make them!


You will need:

  • Fabric
  • Scissors
  • Sellotape
  • Chritmas Decoration Hooks



  1. Cut a large rectangle of fabric, mine was 8cm by 18cm. Then cut another rectangle out but make this one 1cm by 18cm. Alternatively you could use a piece of ribbon.
  2. Fold the edges of the larger rectangle under to ensure the sides don't fray. I used sellotape t keep them in place.
  3. Fold the material in half to make a square.
  4. Fold it in half again to make a rectangle.
  5. Take the thin piece of fabric and tie it round the larger piece.
  6. Knot it a second time to ensure it stays in place.
  7. Trim the excess
  8. Then use the Christmas decoration hooks to attach the bow to your tree.


These are really simple to make but I think they look really cute! They're also one of the cheapest DIY's ever!

Let me know if you have a go at making these!
