How to Make Easter Hair Bows, Fun Easter Basket with Pom Pom Bunny

Watch Sandy Sandler, Creator of the #Bowdabra, create the cutest Easter basket, Bunny Hat, Pom Pom Bunny, Easter Hair Bows, Spring Bows and more in minutes with the #Bowdabra. The month of March, which hails in the Spring season, is also the #NationalCraftMonth.

SPRING BOW

A piece of dovetailed wide pink ribbon, the perfect color for Spring, is placed in the Large Bowdabra with simple twists and folds and half folds. Tied up with the Bowdabra Bow Wire, the bow is pulled out and fluffed out and then tied up tight. What you get is a large pink bow with lovely tails!

RIBBON BOW FLOWER

For the next Ribbon Bow Flower, Sandy takes a few pieces of green ribbon with pointed ends to make them look like petals. Scrunched into the Mini Bowdabra with slight twists in the middle, they crease out beautifully. She tops up the arrangement with pieces of pink and maroon shear ribbon.

It is important to ensure that all these ribbons are wired because that is what gives them their shape. Once the arrangement is tied with the Bowdabra Bow Wire, Sandy pulls them all towards the upside and then fluffs out the petals and the leaves.

BUNNY HAT

Sandy takes a roll of yarn and cuts out a piece which she folds into half and places in the Large Bowdabra (this time along the width of the Bowdabra and not along its length). The rest of the yarn is quickly wrapped around the pillars of the Bowdabra (at least a 100 turns).

Once the yarn puff is pulled out of the pillars and tied up, Sandy cuts the loops to make it a pom pom. She sticks a little pom pom for the tail and ears, and feet made with felt and foam. The bunny is then stuck on to a hat to make a cute Bunny Hat. For the final touch up she makes a cute bow to add to the Bunny.

And you have the cutest Easter Bonnet for your Easter parties!

Another Bunny takes its place in an Easter basket diving in for goodies in the grass which is packed with candy canes and candy packs.

Sandy takes some beautiful organza and satin trim to make a quick little bow with the Mini Bowdabra and adds it to the basket.

PINK BOA AND DOUBLE LAYERED #BOW

With a piece of bright pink boa and two pale pink ribbons (double layered) Sandy makes a gorgeous bow and adds it to the Easter basket.
