DIY Weddings: Chair Sashes Tying – Bow | Beyond Elegance Rentals
Please scroll down for more detailed instructions
Step 1: Find the middle of the sash & center it on the front of the chair so you have the two tails pulled towards you
Step 2: Cross the left (highlighted green) tail over the right (blue).
Wrap it under the blue tail and pull it up through the hole, tying a knot.
Step 3: Using the green (originally the left now on the right side) tail, make a small loop by wrapping it around your thumb
Step 4: This is the trickiest part… holding the loop (green) in your right hand wrap the opposite tail around the loop:
Start from the bottom and wrap it up over the front so the tail is hanging behind the loop. From there make a look with that tail and pull it through the hole you created by wrapping it around (basically just like if you were tying your shoes).
Step 5: Pull tight. If the loops are uneven or too long, you can adjust by pulling the tails, just make sure to pull the loops tight again after you’ve adjusted the length.
Step 6: Fluff out the loops to give the bow some volume
Step 7: Adjust to your liking – some may require flipping the tails around so that they lay flat. Also take this time to make sure the sash is lying flat across the front of the chair.
And there you have it! Seven quick steps to tying a beautiful chair sash bow!
