7. Once you have completed your wreath, it is time for a bow. To make the bow I used the Mini Bowdabra and Hair Bow Tool & Ruler. Begin by placing the Hair Bow Tool and Ruler onto the Mini Bowdabra. Cut an 18”³ piece of Bowdabra Bow Wire, fold it in half, and place it into the Mini Bowdabra.

9. Follow the CD’s instructions for finishing the bow. Once finished, tie a scrap piece of 5/8 inch wide red grosgrain ribbon onto the back of the bow. Using the 5/8”³ wide red grosgrain as a finishing ribbon on the center of your bow to hide the Bowdabra Bow Wire. To keep the grosgrain ribbon tails from fraying run a lighter along the edges of ribbon to keep it from fraying. An another alternative to keep ribbon from fraying is clear nail polish. I hot glued my bow onto my extra red ribbon. The wreath is finished and ready for hanging.
