1. Measure the desired tail length. Twist the ribbon to keep the right side out. Wrap the ribbon loosely around your thumb to form a center loop. Hold the ribbon between your thumb and forefinger, and twist. Make the first loop to the desired length on one side of your hand, holding the ribbon between your thumb and forefinger. Give the ribbon a half twist.
2. Make the second loop on the other side of your hand. Returning it to your thumb and forefinger, hold the loop and make another half twist. Continue making a loop and then a half twist, alternating sides until you have the desired number of loops.
3. Measure the second tail length and cut the ribbon. To secure the loops, insert a wire around the center loops. Fold the wire in half, bring the wire ends to the back, pinch the ends together and twist.
4. Leave ample wire for attaching the bow to a gift, wreath, etc. Trim the tails of the bow. Use the wire to attach the bow to the ribbon around the package.
