Wedding Centerpiece on a Budget

2. To make the bow for the Wedding Centerpiece: Cut a 24” piece of Bowdabra Bow Wire and fold it in half. Lay it into the Bowdabra. You’ll have a loop at one end and two loose pieces at the opposite end. Cut several pieces of sheer ribbon. Cut the ends into a point. Seal the ends of the ribbon with clear nail polish. Fold the ribbon in half to form a crease. Place the ribbon at the crease mark into the center of the Bowdabra.

5. Scrunch ribbon down with the Bowdabra Wand. While the bow is still in the Bowdabra, thread the two loose ends of the Bowdabra Bow Wire through the loop at the other end. Pull the Bowdabra Bow Wire tightly while the bow is still in the Bowdabra. Gently pull the bow out of the Bowdabra. Separate the two loose ends of the BowdabraBow Wire and bring them around to the back of the bow. To tie off the bow, pinch the BowdabraBow Wire securely against the bow. Twist the bow 4 to 6 times in a clockwise direction.
