How To Make A Tree Topper! (Bow Tutorial)

Hey guys! It's time for the tree topper post! I'm joining in on Met Monday so be sure and visit Susan at Between Naps on the Porch for a list of participants. You have got to see her post! It's beautiful!
I have had a lot of you ask me do do this post, so I'll do my best to explain it. Fist I will TRY to teach you how to make a bow. My pictures are probably not the best...Chase took most of them...lol. I am using 3 different ribbons and I will admit that using one is easier, so you might want to practice with one first. Here we go...

First, gather the ribbons in your hand and scrunch them all together.

Next...make a loop going up with the ribbons, then you will want to scrunch them together like in the picture above keeping all the ribbons lined up if you're using more than one.
Then you will go underneath and make another loop.

Scrunch.

Ok...I seem to have left out a small step here. You will need to twist all three ribbons when making this third loop. In this case, keeping the green ribbon on top. Twist to the right, make the loop going up and scrunch.

Now you will need to twist the ribbons to the right again, it was hard to get a picture of the twisting part.


Then you will make another loop going underneath and twisting again to the right keeping all the ribbons lined up.

Then you will make another loop going up, scrunching and twisting the ribbons to the right.See how the green ribbon is always on top, that's why you have to twist them to keep the right side on the top. If you are using one ribbon and both sides are the same you do not need to twist it.


When you have made as many loops as you want just tie it off with a chenille stem or a piece of wire.

Next...fluff out your beautiful bow! I added more streamers to this bow by tying them on with the chenille stem.

Tie your bow on to the tree with the chenille stem. I pushed down some of the greenery at the top of the tree so the bow would sit better.

Now for the fun stuff! I like a lot of glitter so I use glittered stars and berries. Once I get the bow all fluffed out and how I want it, I start poking stuff in the branches of the tree all around the bow. Sometimes you just have to play with it, they don't always go in where you want them to!

I found this gold money looking stuff the other day. I really like it because it's sparkly! I just poked it in around the bottom of the bow.


I bought these red glittered stars several years ago. I poked them in all around the bow as well.



I used these red glittered berries for a little more height. A few more of these and it's done!

there you have it! You can't hardly see the bow now! lol...It will look better once the tree is decorated. This can be done with just about anything you want to use. I have seen some of the neatest stuff this year, so have fun with it!

I'll show you the rest of the tree soon. Looks like I need to weave a few lights in the top of the tree! Thanks for checking out this post, I might have left something out so feel free to ask questions! Have a great week!!

Kristen, loved reading this. Thanks for the lesson darling. Love, love, love the money stuff coming out of the top. We've had something very similar over at work and it really adds that extra punch to the top of a tree. hugs ~lynne~

ButterYum said...

Fantastic - thanks for sharing!

P@nmyfreetime.blogspot.com said...

AMAZINGLY gorgeous!
I LOVE this and THANK YOU for sharing!!

Lynne (lynnesgiftsfromtheheart) said...

Hi Kristen,just me again..:-)) you did an excellent job of explaining. :-)) hugs ~lynne~

Annette said...

This is gorgeous! I love it. I think I will scale back on my topper next year and try this technique. Thanks for sharing!

Diane @ Four Paws and Co said...

Loved this one Kristen! It's beautiful with all the sparkly stuff. ☺♥☺

Destination Seaborn said...

Thanks for sharing! That is gorgeous! I look forward to reading your posts...you have the prettiest photo frames and ribbon projects.
QUESTION: I'm hanging a wreath from a deck rail with ribbon, where's the best place to put the bow? At the bottom of the wreath? Top of wreath? or Hook(where the wreath hangs from)? I've seen it done all ways...Thank you~Lisa

Teresa @ Grammy Girlfriend said...

Great demo.....the weird thing is we make them totally different....I never look down and and the girls always laugh because I can make do it without even looking at the ribbon....but you did a great job of explaining...I like to use 6 ribbons...and I tell everyone it is all in the HOLD....

Sandy said...

Thank you so much Kristen for sharing the tree topper with us. You are such a talented lady and you always have such creative ideas. Have fun Christmas Decorating!! Can't wait to see what you do next!

Paula said...

Great tutorial! You can tell that you've made many, many bows in your life. I like how you jazzed your topper up with the addition of the stars and gold circles. Very pretty!

ceekay said...

Thanks for the lesson. I have done the top of the tree like this, but I see now what I have been doing wrong. You basically lay the bow on the top of the tree. I have been wiring it on the side of the top...This gives a better all around look. Thanks

Sandy said...

Thanks so much for sharing this information. What a beautiful tree topper. Can't wait to see what other wonderful projects you will have to share, I have really enjoyed seeing the trees.
You are a very creative lady.
Sandy

Thanks for the tutorial, Kristen! I will be helping my daughter decorate her tree in her new home, so I needed this! Please tell Chase that he did a great job as your photographer! Happy week!...hugs...Debbie

~Kristen~ said...

Just gorgeous! And thank you so much for the tutorial. I have always wanted to be able to make pretty bows!

kimmcl said...

That was a great tutorial Kristen - thanks! I just use my handy-dandy Bowdabra! Ha!

Deanna said...

Dear Kristen,
Thanx for sharing this information in this post. This was great!
So festive and I like the add-ins on top.

Really neat!

God bless you this December,

Kathy @ Creative Home Expressions said...

Thanks for the great tutorial, Kristen! I am definitely going to try this as I want to put a couple of bows like this on my staircase garland. It looks like a lot of ribbon ~ would you say it's a whole roll? I'll have to post pics and thank you if I get this right. Otherwise mine will be a tutorial on what NOT to do! : )

Jenglamgirl said...

Looks Gorgeous... love the final product! I am so hands on.. I can read this and read this, and unless I am learning hands on and can actually do it.. forget it. You are so awesome for doing a tutorial though! ;)

Amy said...

Lovely and I'm going to try it. How long is the ribbon you're using?

Thanks!!

sweetpicklesandchocolate said...

Love it! Thanks for the tutorial! It is gorgeous on top of your tree.

Janna said...

Kristen the tutorial was awesome. I cant wait to dig in & try it. I just found your blog & am really enjoying all of your talents.

PS just moved to Arkansas as well out near Sheridan. May have to find some of the shows you sell at. Love crafting but have'nt located to many shows yet. Still getting to know the area. :) Have a beautiful day.

Lou Cinda said...

Pretty!!! And a great tutorial!! It is all in the HOLD! Definitely! Can't wait to see the rest of your tree!

Lou Cinda :)

lkjatl said...

I love bow toppers with the whimsical branches and such. I was very fortunate to have a girlfriend teach me years ago how to make a proper bow. It has saved me a lot of money over the years.

Lori said...

Thank you so much for doing this! I have always been intimidated to do more than one ribbon...I had a hard enough time with just one, but you make it look so easy! I am going to try this ASAP!

Lynn said...

Thanks for the tutorial, looks beautiful.

Melissa Miller said...

Very beautifully done Kristen! It is stunning and great step by step tutorial. LOVE it!

I'm definitely going to add something glittery to the top of my tree bows. That looks so pretty! Thank you for the wonderful inspiration. :)

Kim said...

How long are each of the ribbons you use? Is it 3- 10 yd. spools?

Barbara said...

Kristen, Thanks. Ican make the bow, but needed to see the other stuff you added to the top. It is beautiful.

I have a spiral tree which is a little different to decorate than a regular tree.

If you have any suggestions, please plass them to me.

Another great lesson that I will have to try! I received my frame today! It is so pretty! I love it! i'm going to post where I put it soon! I'll let you know when I do. Thanks again!

awesome..thanks for sharing!!!

Risa said...

Thanks so much for this post!!! I was just going to ask you if you could lend some tree decorating tips :-) I'm going to have to get my butt to Hobby Lobby and pick up some good decorations.

Mimi said...

Thanks for the bow-making tutorial. I love the tree with the bow topper...just gorgeous!

Nina Patricia @ The Adventures of Nina Patricia said...

It looks amazing! I usually do a bow too, but mine don't look half as good. Thanks for the twisting tip.

Teri said...

Kristen, thank you so much for the tutorial. If we were neighbors you would be so sick of me asking you to teach me how you do...everything! I love every single thing you make! You are extremely talented.

Where do you purchase most of your supplies? Hobby Lobby? Of course, we have not one Hobby Lobby in the entire state of California. Can you believe that? Not one. At least I get to enjoy your beautiful creations via your blog. Please don't ever stop blogging. =)

undomestic chica said...

Thank you so much for sharing. This will come in handy as soon as we get our tree

Tardevil said...

I'm not, but what if you're left handed?

Melissa Miller said...

Thank you for making my Santa tassel and mailing it so fast!

I got it in the mail today and just love it. It's so pretty with all the loops of ribbons. I also took a photo of it and it's in my post tonight.

Have a great day! ~Melissa :)

Moments of Grace said...

Kristen,
I am sorry it has taken me so long to respond to your kind comment.

I am interested in having a frame done in gold with red or burgundy ribbon bow. I would also like to have one done in chocolate brown with a gray-blue ribbon and my intial--M--. Please let me know if you need further information. I am also interested in a Christmas frame with a plaid taffeta bow and the words "It's Christmas and there's no place like home". thank you so much for taking on this order. I saw the ones you made for Malissa and just had to have some for myself.

Oh, and the tassels you made for Christmas--the ones with the santa on them--could you make me two of those? I have fallen in love with them.

Now, for your recent photos and tutorial. I am speechless. Your work is so breathtakingly beautiful, I find myself just going over the photos over and over again. You are soooo incredibly talented. I am enjoying your holiday decor more than I can say.

thanks for all your inspiration and photos. I am loving it.

In Grace,
Marie

We think alike! I put up a tree topper tutorial yesterday...you should take a look, I'd say we both think outside the box a bit. I love yours...I used those colors last year and I still love them. I think I'll hit the follow button...we seem to like the same things.

Mary Ellen (megardengal) said...

I was over at Melissa's and saw some of your sweet little frames and thought I would come over and say "HI"! Been so busy haven't been around to all my blogs like I would like!

Love the tree topper!

Melissa Miller said...

Hi Kristen,
I hope is going well with you this week. I have been so busy trying to shop and figure out gifts for all of family. ~Whew!

Yes! I did hang up the beautiful swag you made me last year and I just love it! I have to take some more Christmas pics very soon and do another post.

Blessings my friend, ~Melissa :)

A Hint of Home said...

Hi Kristen,
Thanks for all the wonderful tips. Your decorating is amazing!
Love all the homes, trees and staircases you've done.

Melissa Miller said...

Hi Kristen,
I had a new re-design done on my blog and I made your blog my very first "Blog of the Week"! I hope it's okay with you! It's a cool new feature my husband actually thought of it last night. Check it out when you have a free moment.

Have a good weekend. ~Melissa :)

Melissa Miller said...

Wonderful Kristen! It must feel great to sell that much.

I'm so glad you like the new design. Amber's link is at the very bottom of my blog. It's calld "Spinkles On Top". She is so nice and does quick work. I do think it would be a good thing to do since you have a buisiness.

Did you see the Blog of the Week feature? He! Of course I picked your fantastic blog! I'll leave it up until a week from Sunday. :)

Miss Janice said...

Love this tutorial...thanks sooooo much! You make it look easy:)

Justine said...

Kristen, I popped over from Chris's Corner when I saw on her blog roll that you were doing a bow. Well, I think I'm more confused now than I was before I read your post! heeheeheeeeeeeeeeeee
Next time, video it. There's a great idea! I'm full of em. And it.

Justine :o )

Moments of Grace said...

Kristen,
Please go ahead with the items I requested--the frames and the Santa tassels. I am so happy you are able to do this for me. Please let me know cost and how to pay you.

Your work is so beautiful. I look forward to having it in my home.

In Grace,
Marie

Sara's Sweet Surprise said...

Kristen~ It's been awhile since I've strolled in....I took the whole summer off for a little R&R. I'm slowly making my way back, but with the holidays upon us, it takes my attention away...again.
I've missed you and all the beautiful creations you're so generous to share.
The door swags and tassels are a wonderful reflection (once again)of your incredible talent.
I went over to your Etsy shop to see your tassels and swags, but they seem to be sold out:-(

I was happy to read your hubby had a favorable outcome from his test. I hope your are feeling as well too. I'll come by more often.

Sweet holiday wishes,
Sara

Doesn't anyone else think this looks ugly? It looks easy to make but also more appropriate for anything but the top of a christmas tree.

Thanks for the fantastic tutorial - I've tried all this season to figure out how to make a bow like this but no luck. I'm going to pin this to my Pinterest so next year I have the info at hand. Love your tree, especially love all the pouf coming out of the top!!!

Hugs,

Cindy said...

Thanks for your tips. I'm adding a small string of lights as I make the bow. I saw this at my dentists office and it was gorgeous. It is great to have support from talented people.
