Upcycled Smoothfoam Easter Bunny made with stunning Bowdabra Bow

Hi everyone, Steph Ackerman here today with an upcycled Smoothfoam Easter Bunny decorated with a Bowdabra bow.  Easter is coming so start getting your spring decorations ready.

Smoothfoam Upcycled Easter Bunny with Bowdabra

This Easter Bunny is a pretty Easter decoration, but she desperately needed a bow.

Supplies:

Proxon hot wire cutter
Mini Bowdabra Bow Making and Design Tool
Bowdabra Gold Wire
Ribbon
Smoothfoam Panel

To begin, cut about 18″ of Bowdabra Bow Wire.  Fold the bow wire in half and place it in the Mini Bowdabra.  Wrapping the bow wire underneath the Bowdabra keeps it out of your way while creating the bow.

Using a 1 1/2″ wide wired ribbon, leave approximately 4″ and create 3 loops.

Create a fourth smaller loop for the center of the bow.  Pull up on the bow wire to release the bow.  Tie into a knot.

Finishing the Easter bunny

Using the excess bow wire, tie the bow around the bunny’s neck.  Fluff it out.
