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 ends under to stay out of the way while you are making your bow.

Separate the elements of your floral bush.

Now, lay your floral pieces in the Bowdabra starting with the longest pieces.  Continue adding floral roses, pumpkins etc. from your floral bush.

Next, fold the fabric square in half so that the right side is facing up and lay it in the Bowdabra.  Lay in a piece of black ribbon.

Now, fold the second piece of Halloween sugar skull fabric in half and lay that in the Bowdabra.  Finish by adding the final floral piece.

Finally,  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.
