Did you forget to buy bows for your gifts this holiday season? Do you have free time to get them but would rather do something creative? Well how about you try and make your own homemade present bows. They're creative, unique, and a great conversation piece!
A homemade bow can add a bit of personal touch to all of presents and sort of be green at the same time! I've been making these bows for a couple of years now and after some practice I can make one in under 30 minutes. Price can range to $0-$5, it all depends on what you have on-hand.
