Hi everyone, Steph Ackerman here today with a fun Star Wreath created with the Bowdabra.
This star wreath can be displayed for so many different holidays – think Memorial Day, President’s Day, 4th of July, Labor Day. You could even leave it out all summer.
Using a Smoothfoam wreath, I wrapped it with blue ribbon.
To create the bow, I cut the bow wire about 18 inches then folded it in half and inserted it into the Bowdabra. Next, I folded the wire underneath the Bowdabra to keep it out of my way while I worked on the bow.
Leaving approximately 6″ of ribbon free, I placed the ribbon in the Bowdabra and created varying sized loops.
Once I had the number of loops I wanted, I pulled up on the bow wire and removed the bow from the Bowdabra. Next, I tied the wire tightly to secure the bow and then fluffed the loops.
Using the left over bow wire, tie the bow to the wreath. Paint assorted sized chipboard stars with Tattered Angels High Impact Paint. Once dry, use Beacon Adhesives to adhere the stars to the wreath.
