Stunning Theme Wedding Chair Bow, Bouquet, Corsage, Bow Tie with Bowdabra

Watch Sandy Sandler, Creator of the #Bowdabra, make some stunningly beautiful and yet simple #DIY Theme #Wedding Decorations, starting with an stunning #Bridal Chair Bow, Wrist #Corsage, #Bouquet, Bow Tie, #Hairpin Bow and ribbon flowers – all made in minutes with the Bowdabra, the World’s Easiest #Bowmaker.

THEME CHAIR BOW

Sandy takes a long white tulle, long enough to go round the chair and puts it in the Large Bowdabra with its tails left loose. She next takes beautiful, 5″ wide lace and puts it in folds in the Bowdabra in neat loops. She makes another bow exactly the same size as the lace bow with lovely white satin ribbon. She mixes the lace and satin ribbon, and then adds a burlap bow.

Sandy tops up the arrangement with white flowers. The bow is tied up with the Bowdabra Bow Wire that had been put into the Bowdabra folded into half before Sandy had started making the bow. With the loops shaped up and fluffed out, you get the most amazing chair bow.

THEME BOUQUET

Sandy starts with one piece of lace as the base, and puts a piece of burlap and another piece of lace over it to get the tails. Using her burlap she makes the bow with loops and puts in 4 large flowers, a lily and a rose and goes on to finish the burlap bow with the rest of the remaining burlap.

Sandy adds another lace bow under the flowers and adds some white flowers as the finishing touch.Tied up with the Bowdabra Bow Wire (double knotted for more security), the bouquet looks stunningly beautiful when shaped out.

(NOTE: You can use fresh flowers or silk flowers)

PRETTY PIN BOW FOR MOTHER OF THE BRIDE (OR PROM)

Sandy uses a lace bow, topped with a piece of gold mesh ribbon and flowers to make a quick hairpin bow with the Mini Bowdabra. Once the bow is tied up and fluffed out, she sticks it on a hairpin. You can even tie it to a headband.

BOW FOR THE MAN OR WRIST CORSAGE

With a piece of gold ribbon folded into half with a big loop on one side, a flower, and another piece of ribbon as the finishing touch, Sandy makes a pretty pin bow for the groom with the Mini Bowdabra. It can even serve as a cute wrist corsage.

BOW TIE FOR YOUR PUP

Sandy uses pieces of cream and blue ribbon folded in half and put in the Mini Bowdabra with a little “mountain up” crease. Over those pieces she puts a piece of gold mesh ribbon. Tied up neatly it looks a smart little bow.

PRETTY RIBBON FLOWER

With little pieces of green leafy wired ribbon with their ends cut pointed, Sandy starts her next bow. Over the green ribbons she adds pink ribbon pieces and shapes them up in the Mini Bowdabra as she works. A piece of organza comes in as the top piece. Once the bow is tied up, she twists the bow around, shapes out the leaves and pushes the flower up while holding the bottom. This makes the petals and leaves bloom out.

You can make a whole bouquet out of such flowers or a pretty Mother’s Day gift.
