Wrapping presents is a sometimes impossible art that requires patience. And even if you manage to get the wrapping paper to look neat and tidy, your gift might still look boring.

Until now. This little trick for making beautiful bows will definitely help your packages stand out—and best of all, it’s not nearly as difficult as you’d expect. All you need to succeed is a fork.

With Christmas coming up next month, this couldn’t have been more timely!

What you need:
A fork with four tines
Two pieces of ribbon
Scissors
A candle
