Supplies:

Bowdabra Bow Making Tool
Bow Wire
Ribbon
Bells

It’s so easy to create a wreath to adorn your home for Christmas when you use the Bowdabra.  The Bowdabra makes it easy to create amazing bows with this tool.

First, fold a piece of bow wire in half and place it in the Bowdabra. You will have a loop on one side and two loose wires on the other which will be your slipknot. Next,  place a 10″ strip of ribbon in the Bowdabra.

As you make your loops twist the ribbon to make sure the right side is facing in the correct position for your finished bow.

Continue making loops, making each one a little smaller than the previous one.  I chose to create a 5 looped bow.  Be sure to use the Bowdabra wand to push the ribbon into the channel.

Insert the loose wires through the loop while the bow is still in the Bowdabra.  Pull tight and remove from the Bowdabra.  Turn to the back and tie a knot.

Fluff out and arrange the bow.
