Emelia ribbon 2 1/2″ wide, 65″length
Lavender chiffon ribbon, Apple 2 1/2″ wide 65″ length
Four or five assorted greenery picks
Three or four assorted filler bushes
Two long berry stems
Large rose or peony bloom
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.
Now, take your greenery stems and spread them apart so that they will lay on each side of the Bowdabra. Place them in the Bowdabra one at a time.
Then, do the same thing with the two mini floral picks and another greenery pick laying them in the Bowdabra in the same way. Continue adding florals like Babie’s Breath, lavender, and others.
Next, add the Emelia and sheer ribbon tails. Then, take the Emelia ribbon, twist it, and fold it to bring loops across the Bowdabra making sure the right side is facing up. Repeat with the sheer ribbon.
Finally, add the large focal flower. Scrunch everything down with the Bowdabra wand. Pull apart the towers since they are full. Take the loose wires and pull them through the loop tightly while the bow is still in the Bowdabra. Remove from the Bowdabra, turn to the back, and tie a knot and a double knot.
Shape and arrange your swag bow. Use the excess wire to tie the bow onto your grapevine wreath. How simple was this? You have this stunning springtime wreath and it only took less than 30 minutes!
