Materials:
  • Mini Bowdabra
  • Bowdabra bow wire
  • Wreath form
  • Mini watering can
  • Sheer ribbon
  • Glue dots or glue gun
  • Various floral picks
  • 1 ½” x 10” purple wire edge ribbon
  • 1 ½” x 11” purple wire edge ribbon
  • Floral spray

Instructions:

First, take your wreath form and wrap the sheer ribbon all around the wreath.  Tie a knot to secure the ribbon to the wreath.

Next, take the mini watering can and place it over the knot of the wrapped ribbon on the wreath tucking the extra pieces under.  Then, add a glue dot or use a hot glue gun to secure the watering can to the wreath.  Now add an extra floral pick to the watering can. Next, add the floral sprays in the watering can spout.  Set the wreath aside while you make the bow.

Make the Bow

Cut a piece of silver bow wire, fold it in half and insert it into the Mini Bowdabra.  You will have a loop on one side and two loose wires on the other side.

Take the piece of purple wire edge ribbon and dovetail the ends.  Insert it into the Bowdabra.  These will be the tails.  Fold it over into a loop, scrunch the right side down.

Now, take the other piece of purple ribbon.  Take the right side facing down and place it into the Bowdabra. Now, add the last pick into the center of the bow and scrunch down with the Bowdabra wand.

To finish, insert the two loose wires through the loop and pull tight while the bow is still in the Bowdabra.  Remove it from the Bowdabra. Turn to the back and tie a knot.  Use the excess wires to tie the bow to the spring watering can wreath.  Clip the ends and arrange the bow.
