Instructions for the Memorial Day Bow

  1. First, cut the ribbon, tulle, and 18″ bow wires to length. Quickly pass the ribbon ends through a flame since it will seal the ribbon.
  2. Next, fold the 24″ bow wire in half and put it in the Bowdabra. Tuck the ends of the wire under the Bowdabra to keep them out of the way.Bow Wire in Bowdabra
  3. Then, make a two-loop bow with the red tulle.Two Loop Red Tulle Bow

  9. Next, bring the wire ends to the back of the bow and tie a secure knot, however, leave the wire end uncut for now.Tie Knot on Reverse
