How to DIY an amazing Bowdabra gift bow video tutorial

Learn how to DIY a Bowdabra Gift Bow with a few quick and easy steps in this tutorial with our designer Christel Jules.


Grab a clear ornament and drop some curling ribbon, decorative wire, some faux holly, and berries. And, you can even personalize it.  Try inserting a picture inside the opening and/or a vinyl sentiment or name on the exterior.  Embellish a clear ornament any way you’d like.  Or, if you prefer to use a solid color ornament or different shape, the Bowdabra Gift Bow will work perfectly with it too!

Just combine your colors and follow along with the tutorial to make your own version. And you’ll be ready to gift until your heart’s content this holiday season!  If you have saved your ribbon scraps from other projects this tutorial will show you how to use for them and stretch the dollars you work so hard for!

Materials Needed:

Mini Bowdabra or Bowdabra
Bowdabra Wire
Wired Ribbon or Wired Ribbon Scraps

Clear Ornament
Decorative Wire
Wire Cutter
Curling Ribbon
Vinyl Lettering
