Have I got a cool centerpiece or wreath to make for Halloween using bows made out of colorful mesh tubes! Wow your family and friends with this adorable bow craft! Here’s how!
You will need:
Mesh Tubes – 4Pkgs. (dollar store)
Craft Foam Wreath – 10″
Mini Bowdabra/Measuring Tool/Wand
Let’s begin by wrapping a craft foam wreath with mesh tubes. Use hot glue to attach to attach to the foam at the beginning and at the end.
This looks cool already!
To Make the Mesh Tube Bows for your centerpiece: Insert an 8″ strip of mesh tube into the Mini Bowdabra. Straighten the mesh tubes and gather the ends of four assorted colors, inserting them down into the Mini Bowdabra.
Then fold the tubes together into loops at the 3″ mark on the measuring tool, inserting all into the slot in the Mini Bowdabra.
Continue folding the tubes into loops on each side until satisfied with the fullness of the bow. Use the Bowdabra Wand to scrunch down and hold the mesh tubes in place.
While the wand is holding down the tubes, cut off the excess tubes using scissors.
Then use the 8″ strip of mesh tube to tie a couple of knots to tighten and hold the bow together.
Apply a dab of hot glue to the tube wrapped wreath and hold the bow in place until the glue sets. It will take a couple of minutes for the glue to firm up and secure the mesh bow.
Continue making more mesh tube bows to cover the wreath, gluing them on and around the mesh tube wrapped wreath.
Don’t you just love how adorable this looks!
Have fun decorating the wreath . . .
