Here are the Materials you will need to make this awesome cheer bow!

Bowdabra
Bow Wire (22″)
Pink Tulle (6″ x 18″)
Green Ribbon (2″ x 14″)
Green Cheetah Ribbon (2″ x 14″)
Pink Cheetah Ribbon (2″ x 14″)
Scrunchy
Scissors
Lighter

“Okay, I’m going to make a really cute little spiky ponytail bow. So I’m going to fold my Bowdabra bow wire in half and lay this down into my Bowdabra, and then just tuck the ends underneath to keep them out of my way. Then what I’m going to do is I have a green tulle and a pink tulle, and I’m just going to layer them and scrunch these down into my Bowdabra.

And then I’m going to take a piece of my green ribbon, which I’ve already dovetailed the ends, and put that down in here. In order to seal the ends, what I did—now I’m taking my tulle and scrunching this in. What I did to seal the ends of all of the ribbon is that I just used a lighter and just sealed the ends with my lighter.

Now I’m going to take my pink cheetah pattern ribbon and I’m just going to scrunch the middle to do a mountain up crease, which will give it a really pretty crease that we use for all of our hair bows so we don’t have to sew. Then, I’ll take some more green tulle and scrunch that down into my Bowdabra.

And I’m just going to take my wand and kind of scrunch everything down here. And then I’m going to take my green cheetah and I’m going to do the same thing. I’m going to fold it in half and then do my mountain up. By just scrunching, or folding, in the middle, and then putting that down into my Bowdabra.

Then again, I’m going to take my Bowdabra wand and I’ll take my bow wire, and I’m just going to thread the two ends through the loop, hold my bow down and pull it really tight. Pull it out of the Bowdabra. Separate the ends.

Okay. So now here, I’m just going to take the ends, tie a knot, and I’m going to knot it again. Then I’ll just take my little scrunchy and tie the bow onto the scrunchy and knot it. I’ll cut the ends and then we have a really cute little spiky ponytail holder.”
