How to make a super fun and easy wreath bow with Bowdabra

It’s July and that means we all get a head start on our Christmas crafts during those lazy days of summer.  And Sandy Sandler, the creator of the Bowdabra is here to show you how to make a super fun and easy wreath bow with Bowdabra.  This bow is so beautiful and elegant it can stand alone but looks awesome on a wreath, lantern, and more!  So let’s get started:

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 wreath bow.

Next, take your assorted floral picks which you have already attached together with floral tape, and lay them in the Bowdabra.

Then, take the 15” piece of gold wired ribbon which you have already dovetailed the ends. (To dovetail, fold the ribbon in half and cut at an angle towards the fold.) Continue laying in the dovetailed pieces of ribbon, burlap moss ribbon, Festival red ribbon, and finally the gold ribbon.

Now, take the 36” length of the gold ribbon and place it in the Bowdabra. Fold and twist to make loops till you reach the end.

Next, using the long 54” piece of red ribbon place it in the Bowdabra and twist and fold to make loops till you reach the end letting the tail hang down.

Then, take the 36” piece of burlap wired moss ribbon and repeat the steps as you did before, twisting and folding to make loops on each side.

To finish, 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.

Finally, fluff and arrange the bow.  Use the excess bow wire to tie the bow to your wreath and you have an absolutely gorgeous wreath!
