5 Super Simple Gorgeous DIY Decor Bows Anyone Can Make

Make Super Simple DIY decor bows, summer wreath, curtain tie back, bathroom decor and centerpiece without sewing or hot glue with Sandy Sandler, Creator of the Bowdabra. Bowdabra makes bow making so easy that anyone can do it in minutes. Sandy creates 5 amazingly beautiful and gorgeous DIY projects, all within just half an hour.

Simple DIY decor bows


Sandy uses two different ribbons – a sparkling red and white, dovetailed at both ends and scrunches them into the Mini Bowdabra. She adds another piece of double-tiered ribbon and scrunches them in with the two ends looped inwards with a little mountain up in the middle. Once she ties it up, she adds a piece of Silver Rhinestone Mesh Ribbon with a glue dot in the middle and shapes out the loops and the tails to make a super simple cheer bow in just four minutes.

Sandy takes a large, glittery red ribbon and scrunches it into the Large Bowdabra. Leaving the tails loose, she adds another piece of the same ribbon with large loops over it. Next comes in a thinner but just as glittering blue ribbon, leaving the tails loose again. Over it comes another piece of the same blue ribbon, this time placed with large loops. In between them, she adds a white pick that can be lighted up.

The same process is repeated with two pieces of white ribbon and another pick. Tied up with the Bowdabra and shaped out with the lights giving out their glow, it makes a really fun, lively last-minute centerpiece that you can make any time of the year, with different colors too. It just took 5 minutes to make this gorgeous decor bow.

4th of July Centerpiece


Sandy makes a super simple and quick curtain tie back which can be easily changed with the season. Sandy starts with a long piece of beautiful patterned ribbon placed in the Large Bowdabra and adds a summer flower. It is the flower that you add to your curtain tie back that will exemplify the season. She adds more pieces of ribbon, leaving the tails long and loose. Next, she scrunches in some tulle with one side longer than the other. She adds some smaller pieces of the off-white ribbon to the arrangement and ties up the pile with the Bow Wire.

This super simple curtain tie back took just a few minutes to make but can hold your curtains neatly in place for as long as you wish!

To match the curtain tie back, Sandy takes a rolled up towel and wraps a ribbon around it like a gift and sticks the ends with a zot. She starts with laying down the florals in the Large Bowdabra and then adds a double-tiered ribbon (comprising a ribbon and a Silver Rhinestone Mesh Ribbon), turning the ends inwards to make loops. Tied up all together it makes a very pretty bow that needs to be simply slipped in through the ribbon around the towel. Done in minutes, its a super quick way to make decor bows to help your bathroom look elegant.

Sandy takes a pre-cut 8-inch-wide piece of shimmering gold ribbon and scrunches it into the Large Bowdabra. She adds a piece of similar sized white ribbon (available in Bowdabra Store), a gold one, a white again, and then two pieces of Atlantic blue ribbons – all piled up in the Bowdabra.

Next, she takes another gold Bowdabra ribbon (available in Bowdabra Store) and places it in the Bowdabra with large loopy folds. She adds several pieces of Angel Glitter Mesh  (available in Bowdabra Store) and then takes another mesh ribbon to make a loopy bow over the pile of ribbon that is already in the Bowdabra.

But there is still more to go! Sandy adds yet another Bowdabra ribbon in a bow to make a really full and fluffy wreath. As a finishing touch, she adds flowers and picks and stems and ties everything up with Bow Wire and shapes out the stunning bow.

On the wreath, which has already been wrapped around with gold mesh ribbon and stems, Sandy ties the gorgeous bow with the remaining Bow Wire. It makes a beautiful summer wreath that will make heads turn.
