    Real boughs? Artificial? I've used branches from real trees and and branches from old artificial trees. How do you want to use them? Do you want to make a wreath using either one? You will need a sturdy frame to attach to for either, to shape the boughs.

    Hello Carol,

    Fold a ribbon. in half. Bend one end back half way towards middle. Turn over and do the same the other side. KEEPING HOLD OF CREASES, flatten and sit on table with wings of bow to underside. Secure with staple or stitch in this position. Us another piece of ribbon to tie around the middle (by gathering up) and secure at the back to form bow! Repeat..................Best wishes.

    I use the wide ribbon that looks the same from both sides with the bendable wire along the edges. Works well if you don't want anything too fancy.
