Hi everyone, Steph Ackerman here today showing you how to beautifully upcycle a vase with Bowdabra. Making a Bowdabra bow will add just the right embellishment to make your vase spectacular!
Ribbon of choice
First, cut a piece of Bowdabra bow wire. Then, fold it in half and insert it into the Bowdabra. You will have a loop on one side and two loose wires on the other side. This will serve as your slipknot. Tuck the end under to stay out of the way while you are making your bow. Insert your ribbon into the Bowdabra.
Begin making loops. Make matching loops on the opposite side.
Now, scrunch everything down with the Bowdabra wand. Then, insert the loose wires through the loop and pull tight while the bow is still in the Bowdabra. Then, remove the bow from the Bowdabra, separate the ends, turn to the back and tie a knot. Tie a double knot for extra security.
Use the excess wire to tie the bow to your upcycled vase, fill with flowers and enjoy!
