How to Make the Perfect Ribbon Bouquet

IMG_3126There’s always someone at a bridal shower who knows how to make that darn ribbon bouquet — You know the one made with all the ribbons from all those gifts that the bride carries during the rehearsal. But have you ever wondered how to make one?! At this past Saturday’s shower for this fabulous bride-to-be, I wondered just that. Thankfully, one of my best gal pal’s had been taught this oh-so-necessary bridal shower skill. Read on for my step-by-step how-to.

Step 1:
Using either a paper plate or cutting a large circle out of a gift box, cut a hole in the middle of the cardboard circle.

With one of the largest/sturdiest ribbons, make a big bow and thread it through the center. The knot can rest just above the hole.

Continue making bows and threading them through the center — Make sure to let some long ends hang through, as they will act as the handle.

You should have a good base now — and can always secure some of the ribbons to the cardboard itself with tape or staples if necessary. You can also use a ribbon to wrap around the handle portion to secure it all in place underneath.

Next, keep tying bows onto bows until you’ve used all the ribbons. Save any small ribbons or individual bows and flowers for the end. Tie these directly onto the larger bows and spread them out around the top of the bouquet to add some fun pops of color!
