First, cut, fold in half and lay some bow wire in the Bowdabra and place the ends underneath while creating the bow.

Next, cut a 12″ length of burlap ribbon and place in the channel.

Now, create 3 loops on either side of the channel.

Cut 12″ lengths of pompom strands and place in the channel.

Pull the wire ends through the loop and pull tight while the bow is still in  the Bowdabra. Turn it to the back and tie a knot and double knot.

Fluff out and arrange the bow.
