50 Creative Bows To Make for Your Christmas Packages

Hopefully, your Christmas and holiday shopping is well under way by now. Soon, all you are going to have left is wrapping. Personally, I love gift wrapping, and think it is one of the best parts of the holiday. However, it can get overwhelming if you have lots of gifts. Last year, I decided to streamline my gift wrapping and used just a few solid colored papers with unique and creative bows. Wow! This was the best idea ever. Turns out, bows simply make a package, and the wrapping is not nearly as important. Learn how to make your own creative bows for packages like mine. Easy step by step tutorials show you how. Get busy wrapping!

 

1. Simple Ribbon Bow

skiptomylou

A professional looking bow will make any gift look amazing, but they can be a little tough to navigate while making them yourself and a bit expensive to buy them pre-made, so I found a wonderful tutorial on Pinterest that makes it all an easy pleasurable experience. Making a ribbon bow is really is simple by following just a few steps you will be able to create beautiful bows for all your packages.  If you like gift wrapping as much as I do you will want to check out the new line of wrapping supplies at Michael’s. The stuff is amazing! The wrapping paper is thick, the gift tags are embellished and everything is beautifully designed.

I love simple DIY gift wrap ideas, but one of the most basic things that gets overlooked in a wash of DIY gift wrapping ideas is how to tie a simple bow. While its true, that its what’s on the inside of the package that counts, that doesn’t mean the outside can’t be just as great! Check out this surprisingly easy bow tutorial and step up your gift wrap game.

DIY gift wrap is so beautiful, and nothing else really comes close to the strait from the heart look and feel of homemade fabric ribbon. I just love making and using fabric ribbon. I love regular ribbon, too, but that can get really expensive very quickly. Making my own fabric ribbon is not only incredibly easy, but it matches the rest of the fabric elements in my party (obviously), and it’s very cost effective.  I can make 66 feet of 2″ wide ribbon with one yard of fabric–often $2.50 or less if I use a coupon at Joann’s Fabrics.

If an elaborate DIY bow is a little too involved for you, or you are running short of time, this DIY gift wrap idea is for you. The process? Start by hand-drawing a bow on the top of your box using the paint pen, and then fill in the lines to make it really pop. To finish, just draw four lines running from the bow down each of the four sides of the box to mimic ribbon. Allow the paint to dry for about 30 minutes before handling too much, and then you’re done!

Christmas is a perfect time to add a pretty little bow on your packages and party decor. For this template, I have included four sizes from the large bow that I used for my holiday decor to the tiny version that I used for the mini bow oil cloth rings, along with two sizes in between. These are outline templates that you can print onto your pretty paper, or print on cardstock and use to outline onto your paper. For those of you who have a cutting machine I am also including the SVG file to make these bows. Once you have your bows cut and ready to assemble, you can use the tutorial here.

These DIY big loopy bows are the perfect impressive topping for any gift or occasion. They are seen as very difficult by most and any craft store will make them for you at $10 a pop.

Adult and kids coloring pages are so fun, but what can you do with all of them? DIY bows of course. Now after a while you probably have a whole stack of coloring pages that you’re quite proud of. You’ve probably hung a few around the house, but generally, don’t know quite what to do with them all. One of the very first projects I shared on my blog about 4 years ago was this idea for turning your kid’s coloring art and it was very popular. It’s such a fun way to turn something that has meaning to you into something cool and share it with others.  And so I’ve been thinking for a while now that I’d love to turn my own coloring pages into gift bows as well!
