How to make a door bow for Christmas

Beautiful Bow door decor


  • Bowdabra bow maker
  • Bowdabra bow wire
  • Deco mesh in your choice of color
  • Printed burlap ribbon
  • Seasonal pick



Deco mesh can be difficult to work with but it is easy with the Bowdabra! You will want to make a big bow door décor for every season and some for gifts as well. These bows would cost a bundle if you were to buy them but cost under $10 dollars to make.

First, cut a 24-inch length of Bowdabra bow wire, fold in half and lay it into the Bowdabra. There is a loop on one side and two loose wires on the other. Tuck the ends under to keep out of the way while you are making your bow.

Next scrunch the deco mesh together and push it into the Bowdabra. Fold back and forth to make the loops. Then, take the Bowdabra wand and scrunch everything down.

Add the burlap ribbon

Now add the printed burlap ribbon. Since the print is only on one side you will need to twist and fold so that the print side is always facing the correct direction. Twist and fold the burlap ribbon making the loops a bit smaller than the deco mesh loops. Since it is getting to be quite a lot of ribbon in the Bowdabra, hold it all down with your hand and scrunch with the wand again.

At this time you can add the seasonal pick right into the Bowdabra and scrunch it all down together with the Bowdabra wand.

Since the wire is folded in half, you have a slipknot. So then, take the loose wires and insert them through the loops and pull tight while the Bow is still in the Bowdabra. Now, take the bow out of the Bowdabra, separate the ends, turn to the back and tie a knot.

Fluff and arrange the completed bow door decor. Use the bow wire to hang on the door or mantle. You can even use this bow as a tree topper at Christmas.
