To make the bows I used some wired ribbon in pale green and gold, some beading wire and some square diamante buckles.
I cut 2 pieces of ribbon and thread them through the buckle.
I thread a small piece of beading wire through the back of the buckle. To make the bow I formed a loop on each side, so they crossed over at the back.
Twist the beading wire tightly round the ribbon to hold the bow in place, then twist the ends of the wire around the branch to hold the bow on the tree. Use the wire in the ribbon to shape the bow.
I made about 15 bows for my tree, and they just help to fill the tree.
