Making the bows:

Bow #1.

  • Take a 16 inch piece of bowdabra wire and fold it in half. This will leave a loop on one end. Place into the mini bowdabra.

  • Place your ribbon beginning with 3 inches from the middle. Loop it back and forth making one bow loop. Start your next loop 1/2 inch in. Make one bow loop.


  • Take your ribbon out of the holder. Insert the two loose ends into the looped end and pull the wire ends tightly. Tie tightly.
  • Do not cut your wire yet, as you will use this to tie your bow to the diaper.


  • Tie a 3 inch piece of ribbon around your bow. Secure with a drop of hot glue and trim closely.


Bow #2.

  • Insert the wired edge organza with 3 inches on each side.


  • Continue back and forth until you have 3 loops on each side.


  • Start your next loop at 2 1/2 inches. Make a total of three 2 1/2 loops.
  • Finish with one 2 inch loop on each side.
  • Pull up your wire, tighten and tie off as in the first bow. Do not trim the wire.


  • Fold the satin edge ribbon in half, pinch at the middle and tie to the bow.


  • Pull the loops of your bow out in a circular motion, fluffing out as you go. Using the bowdabra wire that is on the bow, attach to the wreath.
