How to make a garden hose wreath

  • Bowdabra
  • Bowdabra bow wire
  • One garden hose attachment
  • Small 4” terra cotta pot
  • Floral sprays
  • Chenille stem
  • 3” wreath for birds nest
  • flower
  • 25” 1 ½” wide ribbon
  • Small bird
  • Floral tape to cover hose
  • Two pieces burlap ribbon 2 ½” wide and 18” long
  • One piece 1 ½” wide ribbon and 18” long
  • One-piece and 12” long
  • 12” of 1” wide ribbon
  • Glue dots or glue gun and glue sticks

First, cover your hose attachment with floral tape.  Next, use the chenille stem to create a round wreath shape with your hose.  Add a floral spray pick at each end of the hose wreath

Now, prepare your terra cotta pot with ribbon and add the bird and nest. Tie and glue the pot to the center of the hose wreath.

Next, cut a piece of Bowdabra blow wire, fold it in half, and lay it in the Bowdabra.  Tuck the ends under while you work. Now, begin to add the ribbon pieces for the tails.

Then, make the ribbon loops.  Finally add the last 1” wide piece of ribbon scrunching down like an accordion for a little scrunchy bow.

Now, scunch everything down with the Bowdabra wand.  Put the loose wires through the loop for a slipknot.  Pull tight while the bow is still in the Bowdabra and remove the bow.  Turn to the back and tie a knot.

To finish, use the Bowdabra bow wire to tie the bow to the hose wreath over the chenille stem.
