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.

Next, tie a knot on each end of a  piece of Deco mesh and place it in the Bowdabra for the tails.

Now, add the three silver ribbons for tails in the Bowdabra.

Add the Deco Mesh

Next, take about a yard of the wide Deco mesh and make a scrunchy bow. Scrunch down from the top till you reach the end of the mesh and fold over so that the fraying will not be obvious.

Now, take the sheer swirl ribbon and place it in the Bowdabra.  Make a large loop twisting as you go to make matching loops on the other sides. Make three loops on each side.  Then, scrunch everything down with the Bowdabra wand.

Add the next silver brocade ribbon and make loops as you did with the previous ribbon and finish with 3 loops on each side.

Finally, add the silver picks, and the last ribbon twisting and making loops for the final small center bow ending with a half loop for a button loop.  Give everything a good scrunch down with the 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.

Shape and arrange the bow. This bow would also be fabulous as a door bow, mantle bow, or just a winter décor bow.
