For your big day, create your own wedding jewelry with this gorgeous DIY idea using a Mini Bowdabra. Your day will be extra special with a handcrafted rhinestone mesh bow necklace made by you! Just perfect for the bride, bridal party, and even as a gift!
Materials Needed To Make:
Mini Bowdabra and wand
Silver Rhinestone Mesh
Silver thread and needle
Rhinestone mesh bow necklace
Begin by cutting three 18″ pieces of Bowdabra Bow Wire, folding one in half and inserting down into the Mini Bowdabra, tucking ends under. Next, cut three 10″ pieces of silver rhinestone mesh. Pinch the ends of one mesh strip and insert down into the Mini Bowdabra, right side down.
Then, pinch the opposite mesh end and take over the Mini Bowdabra tower inserting down into the slot, as pictured. Adjust mesh to even out loops using the Mini Bowdabra Measuring tool.
Pinch the mesh center together, down into the Mini Bowdabra.
Scrunch down with the Mini Bowdabra Wand.
While the bow is still in the Mini Bowdabra, thread the loose ends of the wire through the loop, pulling tightly up and out.
Separate the wires around to the back, tying in a double knot.
Cut off excess wire.
Make two more bows the same way, for a total of three bows.
Next, place one bow in the center and lay other bows, left and right, with upper edges touching.
With needle and thread, connect edges of bows through holes, tying together several times, knotting and cutting excess thread off.
And finally, divide chain in half by opening a link, and connecting link ends through holes in mesh edge and then closing links with needle-nose pliers.
What a fabulous idea to make your own wedding jewelry that can also be worn after the big day – a great project using your Mini Bowdabra that can be made anytime, for anyone!
