How to make a Large Bow with Deco Mesh
STEP 1: Make a tail
Make a tail for the bow by cutting a length of deco mesh that is about 5 or 6 feet long. Hold the mesh piece at the middle and straighten out the tails. Deco mesh naturally wants to curl. Set this tail piece aside.
STEP 2: Make the Bow Top
To make the bow top, grab the end of the roll of deco mesh at the center. Start gathering the mesh into one hand down the center. Fold as you gather for a fuller bow, and keep going until you are satisfied with the bow size. This bow used about 6 or 7 feet of deco mesh.
STEP 3: Trim
Once you have made the bow top, cut the mesh at the bottom.
STEP 4: Attach the tails
Take the other piece of deco mesh that you cut in the first step (the tail), and use it to tie around the bow top. The bow tails should wrap around where you have been holding. Tie a simple knot at the back to secure. Straighten out the bow tail
