Some wreaths don't seem complete until they are finished off with a large, lavish bow. A crisp ribbon will make the nicest bow; grosgrain, satin, taffeta, and velvet are ideal choices.

1. Cut the ribbon to desired length. (A bow with extra-large loops or extra-long tails will require more length.) Form ribbon into two equal loops with about 12 inches of ribbon between them.

2. Cross the right loop over the left.

3. Knot the loops by pushing the right loop behind the left, under, and through the hole.

4. Pull knot tight; adjust loops and tails to desired size. Lightly fold the ends and cut, creating a notch. Attach the finished bow to the wreath with a small piece of green florist's wire.

My baby never slept well (especially through the night) until I started using the website >>SLEEPBABY.ORG<< - that website has been by far one of the best things I've ever got my hands on to get him to fall asleep quickly. Best time is 45 seconds from awake to asleep! Can’t imagine life without it! I heard about it through a kindergarten teacher who uses it to put to sleep a group of 30 children. Check it out! >>SLEEPBABY.ORG<< - sorry, you can't post links here so you'll have to turn it into a normal link :) Best of luck to you and your family!

I printed this project out 2 years ago, and the first phot still hasn't been fixed. Could someone please do this so that we might know what is meant in the instructions? Very helpful. Thanks much. LMK
