Easy DIY Pew Bows, Cheer Bows and Wedding Decorating with Bowdabra

Watch Sandy Sandler, Creator of the #Bowdabra, make some super easy and gorgeous DIY Pew Bows, Cheer Bows and Wedding Decorating with the Bowdabra, the World’s Easiest Bowmaker. 

CUTE PEW BOW

Since this is the Earth Month, Sandy picks up some long pieces of Burlap to make rustic design bows. One piece of dove-tailed Burlap is put into the Bowdabra and its tails left loose on both sides. Another longer piece is scrunched down in folded loops. Sandy tops up the arrangement with a wider Burlap that has lace over it. She adds a floral pick and a stem with leaves and a rose to the bow arrangement and ties up everything up with the Bowdabra Bow Wire. Result is a lovely pew bow or a decor bow.

REALLY LARGE, GORGEOUS CHEER BOW

To make sure there is enough ribbon to tie the cheer bow to a chair, Sandy first puts in a large Burlap which has enough extra length to tie the ends later. She adds huge pieces of folded mesh and a few long pieces of ribbon on it. Next addition is lovely silver mesh scrunched into the Bowdabra. More silver patterned ribbon is added to the arrangement. You can keep adding more stuff if you want as the pillars of the Bowdabra can hold a lot of material. Finally a pretty bouquet is added to the bow as a finishing touch and the huge, gorgeous Cheer Bow with a lovely bouquet on it comes out of the Bowdabra!

QUICK AND EASY PEW BOW

Using white self-checkered ribbon, Sandy makes a a large white bow arrangement in the Bowdabra and adds a piece of wavy tulle on it. She tops it up with a rose on a stem. You can, of course, use any ribbon in any color to make a stunning pew bow this way.

PEW BOW WITH A LARGE FLOWER ARRANGEMENT

This time Sandy puts in a piece of burlap and then arranges the florals on it. Above them, she adds a burlap bow and then puts in more florals with large flowers. And then another burlap bow comes over it topped with a pretty, light pink ribbon bow. The last item to be added to the arrangements is a burlap rose and then the entire, huge bow arrangement is tied up with the Bow Wire. Sandy shapes out the loops and arranges the flowers in the middle to make a stunningly beautiful bouquet bow in minutes!
