Mardi Gras centerpiece

Hi everyone! Tammy here with you today to show you how to use your Mini Bowdabra to add some flair to this store bought Mardi Gras centerpiece. I love to host parties for my friends and this centerpiece would be perfect for the upcoming celebration. Here is how I made the bow


Mini Bowdabra

Bowdabra wire


Store bought centerpiece

Feather embellishment


Mardi Gras Centerpiece


Cut a piece of Bowdabra wire about 20 inches long and place in the center of the Mini Bowdabra as shown.

Wrap the wire around the Mini Bowdabra to keep it out of your way while you are working.

Choose several different colors of ribbon to your liking and stack on top of each other.

Wrap around your hand several times.

Cut and heat seal ribbon if you like.

Pinch the center of the ribbon.

Place inside of the Mini Bowdabra as shown

Use the Mini Bowdabra wand to create a crease in the center.

Pull the Bowdabra wire into a slip knot.

Remove from the Mini Bowdabra and tie a double knot to secure.

Separate the loops to create this cute carnation style bow.

Tie a fun embellishment to the bow.

Tie the bow to the centerpiece.

That’s it! You don’t have to always start from scratch when creating fun party decorations. Sometimes just adding a fun bow can make it the hit of the party!
