Christmas Tree Topper

Hey everyone, I’m Simply Shalese, here to make something awesome with you guys! Today we will be making an adorable Christmas tree topper bow. Let’s get started!

Bowdabra Bow Maker

White ribbon – 2 inches in width; 33 inches in length and 40 inches in length

Printed wire-edged ribbon – 2 inches in width; 33 inches in length and 40 inches in length

Bow wire


Placing the Bow Wire

The first thing I do is fold the bow wire in half and place it in the center of the bowdabra. I like to use about 8-9 inches of bow wire.

Making the Tails

We are using the 40 inch long pieces for the tails.

Layer the sheer wire-edged ribbon on top of the white ribbon. Fold in half to find the center then scrunch. Fold in half, bring the front and back up and place it in the center of the bowdabra. Scrunch in place if you need to do so. I decided to only make 4 tails but you can make as many or as few tails as you’d like

Making the Loops

We are using the 33 inch long pieces for the loops.

Take your first piece, fold in half to find the center. Then, take the end of the layered ribbon and scrunch with the wrong side of the ribbon facing up. Make a loop and take the other end and scrunch it in the center of the bowdabra. Then take the center and scrunch once more. Use your wand to scrunch everything together.

repeat this step as many times as you desire. The more loops you add, the loopier your bow will be. Using longer pieces of ribbon will also make your bow larger. Continue to scrunch to help keep everything together.

I decided to go with four sets of layered ribbons. This made a total of 8 loops. You can definitely add more or less if you’d like.

Tying the Wire

Give your bow one final scrunch. Then take the bow wire, the two open ends inside of the loop. Hold the bow in place and give it a nice tug. Then remove it from the Bowdabra. Tie it in a knot a few more times just to make sure it’s nice and secure.

Be sure to keep the excess bow wire in place because this will help you tie your bow to the tree.

Adjusting the Loops

Once your tree topper bow wire is tied, adjust and maneuver your loops, making them more round. This is where having a wire-edged ribbon comes in handy but you can also make this bow with any style of ribbon. You can also separate the layers if you chose to do so.

And you are all done. Make it as large or as small as you’d like. Modify the colors, style, just have fun with it and make it your own.
