Hey guys! I’ve had a lot of questions asking me about the burlap bow that I used for my tree topper on my Christmas Tree!
It is sooooo easy to make and the only tools you need are a pair of scissors and a hot glue gun! Yah baby!
I purchased this roll of burlap garland at Michael’s
Start by cutting a strand that is about 3 feet long.
Fold one end over about 2/3’s of the way over and hot glue it in place
Follow up with the other end and secure with a dab of hot glue
Now, just do the same thing again and lay it on top of the first set of loops.
Cut another strand about 1 ft. long
and fold the ends over to make it skinny 🙂
Lay the two loops on top of the skinny strip. Ugly side of skinny strip faces up and ugly side of loops faces up.
Add a dab of hot glue about a 1/2 inch from the bottom of the loop
and squeeze the loops toward the center with your fingers. Add more hot glue to any folds that touch.
Next, wrap the skinny strip around the bow and secure in the middle of the “pinch” with hot glue.
Do the same for the other end and trim the excess burlap.
Now for the tails! Cut another strip about 3 feet long and at the very center point, fold together and secure with hot glue.
attach that strand to the back of the bow with hot glue.
This is what it looks like when you flip it over! So cute 🙂
To finish her off, fold the end of each tail in half and cut at and angle towards the bottom of the tail
When you open it up it makes a cute, finished edge to the tails!
I used a string of twine to attach it to the tree. I just ran it behind the skinny strand that was wrapped around the middle of the bow and tied a knot in front of the tail attachment.
Now just hang that cutie up 🙂
I hope that you love my Burlap Tree Topper! We always appreciate your shares!
