Materials:

 

Instructions:

First, start by gluing the ruffled edged ribbon to the back of the frame.  Then, wrap the ribbon around the entire frame. You only need to glue at the beginning and the end of the ribbon.

Next, Hot glue the orange ribbon to the top of the frame for hanging.

Now, cut an 18” piece of Bowdabra Bow Wire and fold it in half. Lay it into the Mini Bowdabra. You’ll have a loop at one end and two loose pieces at the opposite end.

Cut several strands of different ribbon. Cut each end on a diagonal. Seal the end of the ribbon with clear nail polish or run a lighter over the ends.

Next, place the ribbon strands into the center of the Mini Bowdabra. Arrange the strands at various angles. Use the Hair Bow Tool & Ruler as your guide to keep all the strands at even lengths.  Then, scrunch down the ribbon with the Mini Bowdabra Wand.

While the bow is still in the Mini Bowdabra, thread the two loose ends of the Mini Bowdabra Bow Wire through the loop at the other end. Pull the Bowdabra Bow Wire tightly while the bow is still in the Mini Bowdabra. Tie off the bow with a knot on the back.

To finish, make another 6” Spiky Bow that will be turned in the opposite direction when attached to the bow. Trim away the Bowdabra Bow Wire from one and use the other to tie the two together. Cover the Bowdabra Bow Wire with 3/8-inch ribbon.

Make two more Up & Down Spikey Bows using the 4″ ribbon. Hot glue your spikey bows to the bottom corner of the frame wreath.
