(Dovetail your tails, To dovetail, fold the ribbon in half and cut at an angle away from the fold.)
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.
Now, lay in all the ribbon tails. Add the ribbon in the following order: bright yellow burlap ribbon, moss burlap, orange burlap, yellow, moss, orange, moss, orange, harvest gold hayride, harvest gold hayride, orange, harvest gold hayride, moss, orange.
Finally, add the fall picks.
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.
To finish, fluff and arrange all the ribbons and picks as needed. You have a lovely spiky wreath bow and you did it in minutes!
