Step 1: Step One

Match ends and fold of grosgrain to make diagonal cuts, cut at a 60-degree angle. Heat the ends to ensure that the grosgrain does not unravel.

Step 2: Step Two

Create the ‘awareness ribbon’ shape, and move the back layer under the top two layers. Then fold the first crease towards the back of the bow.

Step 3: Step Three

Add a hair tie to the back of the bow, and place a zip-tie in the center and pull tight. Hot glue the center to ensure that it does not move and unravel the bow.

Step 4: Step Four

You can then decorate the middle of the bow with whatever type of decoration you want!
