Creating a Large Burlap Bow

What You will need:

• Burlap

• Scissors

• Ruler

• Hot Glue

• String, Ribbon, or Twist-tie

Burlap bows can add a special touch to any project. In this tutorial we’ll show you how to make a large burlap bow!

Start out by cutting a piece of burlap into a 5” wide by 38” long strip. Learn how to correctly cut burlap with our How to Cut Burlap tutorial.

Once you have finished cutting your burlap, start by folding it like shown in the picture below. 

Then cut and fold a second 19" strip in half with ends meeting in the middle.

Turn the piece over to hide the seam in the back.

Center the shorter strip on top of the larger, original piece.

Pinch together in the middle then secure it with a ribbon,string, or twist-tie. Here we are using string to secure our bow.

Cut an 8”x3” piece of burlap then fold it in half again with the seam in the center.

Wrap it around the center of the bow and secure with hot glue in the back.

Your bow is now completed.
