The Better Homes and Gardens website, BHG.com, offers video tutorials and written instructions on how to create three types of bows: classic, layered and rosette. Save-on-Crafts.com offers tutorials on how to make even more styles of bows, including floral, graduated loop, puffy, basic faux and picture hanger.
Save-on-Crafts.com also features instructions on how to make tailored and triple floral. The website gives instructions on how to make guided loops so hobbyists can create their own bows. Some of the basic materials needed to start making bows include sharp scissors and ribbon. Crafters need double-sided tape and rulers to make layered bows, while rosette bows require florist's wire.
