How to Make a Perfect Bow for Any Wreath!

So, you see, we have this door in our dining room. It’s really big and plain and ugly and it leads to the master bedroom. There are a ton of really great DIY solutions that I could do to dress this door up, but we’re planning on changing it out eventually and actually moving it so that the doorway goes into the bedroom a couple of feet and leaves a little alcove there in the dining room. The bedroom is big and the dining room is small, so it makes sense.
Anyway, I may still fancy the door up one day if inspiration strikes but for now, I just decided to stick a wreath on it to fill some of that blank space and call it done. So that’s the story of where the need for this bow came from.

I thought it would be neat if I could try to figure out a way to make a nice bow out of some of the really cute fabrics that I have in my stash and I’m pretty excited with what I came up with!
Make sure that your frayed edge ends up landing somewhere in the middle-ish of your strip so that the frayed edge doesn’t stick out when your bow is all done. You could start with a wider strip and fold it in again so everything’s totally hidden, but that’s not really necessary because nothing will be showing once the bow is complete.
