Simple Burlap Tree Bows...

Christmas prep time continues, 
and today we're making some simple burlap tree bows.
Cut 17 inch (43cm) pieces of burlap ribbon.
(In New Zealand this is sold
 in the Gardening section at Bunnings as Jute Tree Tie).
Fold as this photo below shows...
(the blue paper is so you can see how much to overlap).
Pinch the centre together.
Tie with binding of your choice.
You may want to enlist a helper to tie the ribbon
if you find it tricky to do by yourself.
And that is it!
I made 20 simple burlap bows to decorate the Christmas Tree.
But you could use the bows to decorate
 a basket handle, a wreath or even a present.
