My name is Rayshun Williams and I will be showing you how to tie a bowtie.
Teachers! Did you use this instructable in your classroom?
Add a Teacher Note to share how you incorporated it into your lesson.
Get any self-tie-bowtie and wrap it around your neck! Collar up!
Next you would want to pull down one end of the bowtie until the middle of the extended side meets the head of the other side.
Now that's done, you would want to take the extended side and place it across the bottom portion of the other side.
Now put the extended side underneath the bowtie and over the ledge.
Great! You're almost there! Now you want to tighten the bowtie around your neck, but not to tight of course!
Take the short side of the bowtie and bend it half way against your neck.
Take the extended side and place it on top of the folded side. It should look like this.
Now pull the folded side forward on both sides.
When you pull the folded side forward you should see a small opening like so.
While continuing to hold the sides, take the extended side and push it halfway through the hole. If the outcome does not look like this picture simply take it back out and try the other side of the bowtie
Now the tricky part. As you can see on both sides of the bowtie there are holes where the sides were folded. Place both index fingers in both holes. Place your thumbs behind each single flap, after this is done simply pull and you should see the bowtie come together in all its glory!
Now PULL!!! Pull in the opposite direction until you feel the middle knot getting smaller and tighter against your neck. The end result should look like this. Congratulation!! You just tied a bowtie.
