Mini Bowdabra with the hair bow and ruler attachment
20 inches 1 ½” wide white netted ribbon
Mini tree ornament for the center of the bow
Hot glue gun and hot glue sticks
3/8” wide white grosgrain ribbon to cover alligator clip
Gather your supplies. Cut an 18-inch piece of Bowdabra bow wire, fold in half and insert into the bow maker. You will have a loop on one side and two loose wires on the other.
Cut a 20-inch piece of the netted wired ribbon. Fold in half to find the center and insert into the Bowdabra bow maker. Make a loop with one end bringing around and inserting the end into the Bowdabra.
Bring the other end across the first loop and insert that end under the first loop and into the Bowdabra. It will look like an X.
Insert the bottom ribbon loop into the Bowdabra. Repeat with the top loop. You have formed the bow.
Scrunch down with the Bowdabra wand.
Insert the two loose wire ends through the loop and pull tight while the bow is still in the Bowdabra. Remove from the Bowdabra, turn to the back and tie in a knot. Cut off any excess bow wire. Arrange the bow.
Use the hot glue gun and hot glue sticks to cover an alligator clip with 3/8” grosgrain ribbon. Attach to the bow with the hot glue. Use some more hot glue to add a charm, button or mini Xmas ornament to the center.
