So, are you ready to get your craft on? Let’s dive right in and create this charming DIY Burlap Rosette All Purpose Fall Bow together.
45” piece of 1.5” wide wired Fall plaid ribbon
40” piece of 2.5” wide wired Burlap ribbon
2 – Loose Fall leaves
Bowdabra Bow Wire
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 Bowdabra two fall leaves one one each side. Next take the plaid ribbon and fold it in half to find the center. Place it in the Bowdabra and take one end and twist and fold to make a loop. Repeat this on the other side for a four loop bow. Scrunch everything down with the Bowdabra wand and adjust the loops.
Now, take the burlap ribbon and fold it in half to find the center. Fold one end down to from a triangle shape. Take the other end and fold lit over the triangle shape to form a square shape. Continue in this folding over in this manner still keeping a square shape.
Now, take the ends loosely and pull to form a rosette. Lay the rosette in the Bowdabra. You will have a long tail on the opposite end. Swirl this end around and lay it in the Bowdabra.
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.
Cut and dovetail the ends of the burlap and plaid ribbons. Fluff and arrange your bow. You have an amazing autumn burlap rosette bow that you can use in a myriad of ways!
