Let’s make the autumn bow:

  1. Fold the 20″ bow wire in half and put it in the Bowdabra. Tuck the ends of the wire under the Bowdabra to keep them out of the way.Wire in Bowdabra Gold
  2. Make a fold bow with a 7′ length of mesh ribbon.Make Fold Bow with Decorated Mesh Ribbon
  3. Next, scrunch the tulle into the Bowdabra. Remove individual leaves from the garland and layer in the Bowdabra on top of the mesh ribbon and tulle.Add Layers of Scrunched Tulle and Leaves
  4. Compress the ribbon, tulle, and leaves with the Bowdabra wand.Compress Ribbon and Leaves with Wand
  5. With the ribbon, tulle, and leaves still in the Bowdabra, pass the wire ends through the loop, and tighten. Bring the wires to the back side of the bow and tie a knot. Leave the wire ends long for now.Pass Wire Ends through Loop
