Trendy Mini candy cane decor
- Mini Candy Cane form
- Mini Bowdabra bow maker
- Bowdabra bow wire
- Various ribbons
- Pine pick
- Hot glue (optional)
First, prepare your mini candy cane by wrapping your choice of ribbon tightly around. You may use hot glue to attach the ribbon or by knotting and tucking the ends back in the starting and ending points. Be sure to wrap at an angle as you cover your form.
Next, make the bow. Cut a piece of Bowdabra bow wire, fold it in half and place it into the Bowdabra. Then, begin adding pieces of ribbons of your choice. Make one loop on one side which will leave two tails on the opposite. Keep alternating this pattern. This is a great way to use up extra scraps.
Next, add a longer piece of non-wire ribbon for a streamer. Finally, add the pine pick to the center.
Insert the loose wires through the loop for a slip knot and pull tight while the bow is still in the Bowdabra. Remove from the Mini Bowdabra, turn to the back and tie a knot. Double knot it for extra security.
Fluff and arrange the bow. Use the excess bow wire to attach the bow to your candy cane!
