How To: Fall Decor with Ribbon

For those looking to upgrade their Fall décor we’ve got a small project that can offer a little chic twist. By using May Arts ribbon and the Bowdabra we took this staple in autumn décor from ordinary pumpkin to stylish display, quick and easy!


To make these beautiful bows we suggest you use the bow making tool and RG10 1.5” Grosgrain ribbon. We also recommend the fold and twist technique. You can find complete instructions on their website for this and many other methods.
