Christmas Wreaths: Snowman

snowman wreathI’m a huge snowman fan! I love wearing silly snowman sweaters and filling my home with snowmen decorations. My family doesn’t seem to mind, either! This year I’ve made a few new snowmen decoration including this Snowman wreath. This snowman evolved out of various supplies I had around the house. It didn’t cost me anything to make and took under 30 minutes to make!

8. Add in various sizes of Christmas ribbon into the Bowdabra. Scrunch down the ribbon with the Bowdabra Wand. While the bow is still in the Bowdabra, thread the two loose ends of the Bowdabra Bow Wire through the loop at the other end. Pull the Bowdabra Bow Wire tightly while the bow is still in the Bowdabra.
