When you need a pretty bow in a hurry, think about your crisper. Much of our bountiful harvest of fruits and vegetables come packaged in mesh bags. You may already save the mesh bags (tied in knots and stored in a baggie under your sink) to use as non-abrasive scrubbers for your non-stick surfaced pots and pans, but the mesh bags also make for lovely--and often colorful--bows. Simply snip off any advertising cardboard pieces. Hold at approximately one-half and tie a regular shoe type bow. Pull tight. Be sure to puff the bow out. Attach to a gift and you have a colorful (and useful) final touch.
