Happy New Year Decorating with Bowdabra’s New Year’s bow

Hi everyone, Steph Ackerman here today with a New Year’s bow.  With the holidays over, it’s time to turn our attention to the New Year and all that it brings.

Happy New Year decorating with Bowdabra can be something as simple as a decorative bottle or as intricate as numerous bows adorning the dining room table.  But, if you are attending a New Year’s Party (or any upcoming party), then you’ll need to take a beverage to the party and there is nothing better than a New Year’s Bow decorated bottle.

Red Scrunchy Ribbon


Begin by placing an 18″ length of bow wire in the Bowdabra.  I wasn’t sure how much ribbon I was going to use, so I just cut off a length of ribbon and started creating my bow.

Fluff out the bow.  Using more of the Scrunchy ribbon, start at the bottom and roll it around the bottle until it is covered.   Using the Bow Wire, tie the bow to the neck of the bottle.
