Easy Christmas Wreath with Bowdabra Bow

Sometimes uncomplicated is best. I have plenty of wreaths with all sorts of things added to them.  If you ask me which Easy Christmas Wreathones are my favorites I will always tell you – I love the simple but elegant wreaths with nothing more than a beautiful Bowdabra bow, as its center of focus!  In order to give this wreath some extra Christmas flash I’ve added a string of battery powered mini lights. It’s quick, easy and adds just the right touch over a mantle.

You will need:

  • Bowdabra Bow Maker
  • Bowdabra Bow Wire
  • Artificial pine wreath
  • Battery powered mini lights
  • Green floral wire
  • Wire cutters
  • Roll of 2 ¼” Christmas printed wired ribbon
  • Scissors

Instructions:

1. Turn your wreath to the back and attach the box with the on/off switch on the bottom of the wreath with the green floral wire. It works best if you criss-cross the wire around the box.

2. After you have wired the power box on turn the wreath to the right side and weave the lights all around. Make sure all the lights are facing the front of the wreath. It easy to do this with lights on.

3. Make the Bowdabra bow. Cut a 24” piece of Bowdabra bow wire and fold in half. Insert the wire into the Bowmaker. You will have a loop on one end and two pieces of wire on the other.

6. Using the rest of the ribbon make the bow by folding the ribbon back and forth creating loops. Make sure you twist the ribbon so that the right side is facing up. Continue making loops until you have as many as you want. I had 15 loops on my bow.

      Hi Michelle, thank you for this question. For a 26″ wreath I would make the tails about 30″ and fold it in half and tie it onto the bow after you make it. I would make the loops on the bow approx. 4″ each and I would use a wired ribbon. Hope that is helpful!!
