Bowdabra Mini Bow Maker Flower Puff Dog Collar Bling

 maddy flower collar

January 14th is National Dress your pet up day. So in honor of this day I figured why not make it a dress up your pet week? I don’t like putting uncomfortable clothing on my pets but a collar dresses them up quite nicely. This little puffy flower slip on collar bling is easy to remove and replace with a different one. Make them in several different colors and your pup will have a whole wardrobe to change with the seasons…or mood. These little slip on collar additions cost over $5.00 in pet and department stores and you can make one for practically nothing! Make money selling your bows at craft shows and more with a Mini Bowdabra bow maker.

Materials needed:

  • Mini Bowdabra bow maker
  • Bowdabra bow wire
  • 18 inches of 3” wide printed tulle
  • 8 inches of 1 ½ wide sheer white ribbon
  • Scrap of white felt
  • 3 inches of ¼” wide elastic (you can substitute an old hair tie)
  • Scissors
  • Ruler
  • Glue gun and glue sticks


  1. Gather your supplies.


  1. Cut an 18-inch piece of Bowdabra bow wire and fold in half. Insert into the bow maker. You will have a loop at one end and two pieces of wire at the other.
