    Ribbons and Bows

  1. 1

    Unroll organza ribbon and wrap it around the back of a pew end. Pull out enough so the ribbon hangs down on each side and extends a few inches past the floor (so the ends rest on the floor).

  2. 2

    Hold the ends of the ribbon and even them out so there is an equal amount of ribbon on each side. Pull the ends tight, then tie in a simple knot in the centre of the pew.

  3. 3

    Loop the ends and tie into a bow. Straighten out the bows and adjust so they are full and unwrinkled.

  4. 4

    Cut the ends to match in length and cut style. The ends should almost touch the floor or barely touch the floor.


  1. 1

    Hang a plastic pew clip over the end of the pew. Attach a lightweight plastic basket or cone to the pew clip.

  2. 2

    Arrange your flowers into arrangements and cut the ends at an angle. Stick the ends of the flowers into a water tube.

  3. 3

    Set craft foam blocks into the basket or cone. Poke the water tube into the craft foam.

Tips and warnings

  • Practice making the bows and decor the day before the wedding or sooner so you can perfect your skills to make the actual day set-up easier.
