Hi! I’m Joette from the Bowdabra Design Team! Today, I’m excited to introduce you to a wonderful DIY project that will infuse your doorstep with the enchanting allure of the seaside. In this video, we’ll dive into the process of crafting a welcoming, year round coastal door hanger that will instantly transport you to the beach.
So, gather your Bowdabra and supplies, and let’s embark on this delightful journey to create an adorable coastal door decor that will make a huge splash!
Turquoise Twinkling Ribbon
Natural Burlap Ribbon
2 – White Sunflower stems
Round Wooden Door Hanger
Hot Glue or Staple Gun
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, add two 10 inch strips of pre-dovetailed burlap to the Bowdabra. Then dovetail the end of some twinkle ribbon and then add it to the Bowdabra. Twist and fold to make loops. The loops can be between 4-5 inches. Dovetail the end.
Now, add sunflower stems, one on each side. Then cut two 7 inches pieces of the twinkle ribbon, dovetail the ends and lay them in the Bowdabra across from each other.
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.
To attach the bow to your sign either staple or hot glue it. You have a beautiful year round coastal door hanger and you did it in just minutes!
