How to Draw a Christmas Ribbon

Step 1.

Start with a circle for the center guide of the bow. This will be the beginning shape for the knot.

Step 2.

Sketch out the actual shape of the ribbon or bow's knot, then draw the butterfly like shapes for the bow itself.

Step 3.

Draw the back parts of the bow, then draw the ribbon tails. The tails should be forked at the tips, then proceed to step four.

Step 4.

Lastly, draw the indents to the center of the ribbon, then begin drawing the border or trim on the inside of the bow. Erase your mistakes then you're done.

Step 5.

It's Christmas time and the night is young. Color in your ribbon or bow then used what you learned on something other than a present or wreath.
