How to Tie a FORK BOW

So I found a great project to do that said to use a 'fork bow'. I had no idea what this was so I looked it up and thought I would share this great technique!

Here is how to tie a fork bow:
You will need a dinner fork (with 4 tines) and about 8" of ribbon of your choice. You can use less but it's much easier with something to hold onto. I used Razzleberry 5/8" polka dot ribbon but its a little easier with 1/4" ribbon.
First you are going to fold the ribbon in half to make a loop and put it around the fork.

Now take your back ribbon and wrap it around the front. Thread it through the center of the tines under the other ribbon.

Now take the front ribbon that you just crossed the back ribbon over and pull it forward.

Bring it up and stick it in the center of the fork tines on top of the other ribbon.

This is what it looks like from the back if you flip over the fork.

Now just tie the ribbon in a knot (still the back of the fork) and that will hold the center piece in place.

Slide it off of your fork and you have a tiny little bow! You can trim the ends for however long you need them.
This technique does work better with thinner ribbon, maybe 1/4" thickness.
