Felt Gift Bows

Last year Jacinda whipped up some beautiful DIY Magazine Gift Bows from a tute she found at How About Orange.  I loved them so much, this year I thought I’d try to make a few out of felt.

Fun last minute wrapping trick, and it only took ten minutes to make three of them.

DIY Felt Gift Bows

Start by cutting your felt.  For each bow you’ll need:
Cut three strips of felt 9″ long by 3/4″ wide.
Cut three strips 8″ long by 3/4″ wide.
Cut two strips 7″ long by 3/4″ wide.
Cut one strip 3″ long by 3/4″ wide.

Twist each strip into a loop and glue it together in the center.

Repeat on all strips.  Make the smallest strip into a circle and glue.

Layer the three long (9″) loops and evenly space them, glue together.

Add the next three shorter (8″) loops evenly spaced and glue together.

Add the next two shorter (7″) loops and glue.

Glue the circle in the center.

Try mixing up some colors.

Place on gift. Done!

Thanks for the inspiration How About Orange!

each package under my tree is getting a glizty glitter looking ribbon! So sprakly with the lights from the tree reflecting off of them!
HOWEVER….I am also running interferance with my 1 year old thinking the ribbons are handles…perfect for latching onto and dragging presents around the house. I've found several stacked in her room!:) ha!


This year I’m keeping it pretty simple, mostly brown craft paper or red tissue paper tied with red baker’s twine.
