The Christmas season is in full swing and you can make a cute Bowdabra bow ornament to add to gifts, cookie exchanges and more! Also you may want to make a few to add to your own tree in colors to match your décor. You can find the crystalized fruit in the local craft stores for pennies!

You attach the bow to the Bowdabra bow ornament right in the Bowdabra so it’s extra quick and easy!

In my town they have a charity event called the festival of trees. Local groups, businesses and private persons decorate a themed tree and people bid on the completely decorated trees. All proceeds go to charity. I can see a tree decorated with a Bowdabra bow ornament on every branch and a large tree top bow on top. Now that would a tree to remember!
