Make a Ribbon Bow using Jewelry Wire {Part 2}

Normally, when we make bows we use Bowdabra Bow Wire. Bowdabra Bow Wire is simple and easy to use and malleable. However, when making jewelry the Bowdabra Bow Wire isn’t always ideal. Want to add a bow to charm, necklace, or bracelet? Use 24 gauge jewelry wire to hold your ribbon bow together. Visit part 1 of this craft, that I made this morning, and be sure to check in this evening, for part 3!

Materials Needed:

  • 3/8″ Satin Ribbon
  • 24 gauge wire
  • Jewelry Wire Cutters
  • Mini Bowdabra
  • Hair Bow Tool & Ruler (metric side)

Instructions:

1. Begin by placing the Hair Bow Tool & Ruler (metric side) onto the Mini Bowdabra. Cut 8″ 24 gauge wire and place it into the Mini Bowdabra.
