How to make a DIY Easter Lantern Swag

  • Ribbon: 7275 – 2.5 inches white/orange
  • carrot toss ribbon
  • Mini Bowdabra
  • Bowdabra Bow Wire
  • 8”-10” Lantern
  • 2 yards of Carrot Toss Ribbon
  • 1 magnolia stem with foliage
  • 3 -ranunculus blooms
  • Spiky Flower blooms


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, lay in the magnolia bloom in the Mini Bowdabra. Continue to add florals to the Bowdabra laying them in opposite directions.

Now, add the small pieces of carrot ribbon for the tails on which you have already dovetailed the ends.

Next, take the longer piece of carrot ribbon, twist it, and bring it across to make a loop.  Continue to twist and fold to make a bow.

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.

Finally, fluff and arrange the loops and flowers on your bow.  Use the excess bow wire to tie the bow to the lantern. Tie it in a bow so that you can change out your swag in accordance with the current season. You have a beautiful DIY Easter lantern swag!
