Get in the Halloween spirit with this festive witch’s leg and shoe bow made out of ribbon and stiff felt! It’s so adorable and easy to create using your Mini Bowdabra. And it looks fabulous as a Halloween decoration or hair accessory.
Let’s get started by gathering the following materials:
• Mini Bowdabra and Hair Bow Tool & Ruler
• Bowdabra Bow Wire
• Mini Bowdabra Wand
• 2.5″ Orange Ribbon – 36″ long
• 1.5″ Halloween Print Ribbon – 24″ & 18″ lengths
• 8″x8″ Stiff Felt
• Witch’s Shoe Pattern
Begin by cutting an 18″ piece of Bowdabra bow wire, folding it in half and placing it into the Mini Bowdabra.Next, cut an 18″ piece of decorative Halloween 1.5″ ribbon and lay it into the Mini Bowdabra with the strips pulled down as legs.
Then to make a boutique bow, fold the 36″ strip of ribbon in half to find the center, creasing it and placing it down into the center of the Mini Bowdabra.
Next, grab the end on one side of the ribbon, up and over the tower and place down into the Mini Bowdabra
Do the same for the other ribbon end, up and over the first ribbon loop and down into the Mini Bowdabra, forming an X over the Mini Bowdabra tower.
Crease the loops in the center, down into the Mini Bowdabra, starting with the bottom loop and then the top loop.
Scrunch down the ribbon with the Mini Bowdabra wand.
Do the same for the 1.5″ decorative ribbon. Make sure the right side is facing down. You might have to scrunch down the ribbon as you go along.
After scrunching the ribbon down, and while the bows are still in the Mini Bowdabra, thread the two loose ends of the bow wire through the loop, pulling tightly.
Gently pull the bow out of the Mini Bowdabra and separate the bow wire around to the back of the bow, tying in a double knot.
To make the shoes, right click and save as, to copy and paste pattern. Adjust the size to with of the 1.5″ ribbon.
Next, cut two patterns out on stiff felt, then, glue onto the bottom of legs.
Isn’t this the cutest Halloween bow ever!
