Materials:

 

  • Silver Bowdabra bow wire
  • Bowdabra
  • 10” x 30” platinum mesh
  • 10” x 1-yard platinum mesh
  • Three Trendy tree picks
  • 10” x 30” black mesh
  • 2 ½” x 29” Striped black and white ribbon
  • 16” diameter foam Wreath


First, cut a length of Bowdabra bow wire. Make sure it is long enough since you will use the excess to attach the bow to your wreath. Fold it in half and lay it in the Bowdabra.  You will have a loop on one end and two loose wires on the other end which will be your slip know.

Next, fold a piece of platinum mesh in half to find the center, then lay it into the bowdabra.  This will be the tails.  Then, take another piece of platinum mesh and take the right side of the mesh and scrunch that into the Bowdabra.  Then, bring it around to the right side of the other end and scrunch that in.  Now, scrunch in the center.

Add the black and white pick

Now, take the black and white pick and just lay that into the Bowdabra.  Then take a piece of black mesh and just scrunch that in.

Add the Black and white ribbon

Next, take the black and white striped ribbon and take the right side of the ribbon and scrunch that down.  Then, bring the other side around and take the right side and push that in.  Now we have a loop, take the right side of the ends of the ribbon over the loop and push the right side in the Bowdabra.  You will be making an X shape.  Now push the bottom ribbon in first and then the top of the ribbon.

Scrunch everything down with the Bowdabra wand.  Take the two loose wires and insert them through the loop of your slip-knot and pull tight while the bow is still in the Bowdabra. Remove the bow from the Bowdabra, separate the ends and turn it to the back and tie a knot.

Arrange and fluff the bow.  Using the excess wire tie to the wreath which you have already covered with black mesh.  To finish, add two more picks by wrapping and inserting them into the wreath.
