Bowdabra fun firecracker centerpiece

Now we’re going to make this really fun firecracker centerpiece. So, I’m going to start by taking my Mini Bowdabra and my Bowdabra Bow Wire, and I’m just going to fold it in half. And then, I’m going to take this hex nut and just string that onto my wire. Now that I’ve folded my wire in half and I have the nut right here, I’m just going to tuck everything under my Mini Bowdabra.  This way it stays out of the way, but there’s nothing that’s connecting to it, it’s just right there.

Then, I’m going to take my silver Scrunchie Ribbon and I’m just going to scrunch it. And I’ll take my wand and I’m just going to make sure everything’s packed down in there.

Next, I’m going to take these little chenille stems, which I’ve already cut. And I have some that are a little shiny. I’ll Take my Bowdabra wand and scrunch everything down. Now I’m going to take my Bowdabra Bow Wire and I’m just going to pull these through my slipknot. And I’m going to take the nut here and just hold it as I hold my bow down, and I’m going to pull it tight so my hex nut will be right in the middle of my bow.

Tie a knot and fluff the bow

So, now what I’m going to do though, just because I really want it to lie down and flat, I just pull my Bowdabra Bow Wire through.  Then, I bring everything to the back, straighten that out there, and just tie a knot. I’m going to fluff my bow. And I’m just going to put this aside.

So, this time, I’m going to take my gold. Again, I’m going to take my wire and I’m going to put it through my hex nut, fold my wire in half, and just put it underneath the Bowdabra. Then, I take my Bowdabra scrunchie ribbon.  I’m just going to scrunch that down there and pull this back through my wire and do the same thing I did last time. I’m just going to pull it all through so that nut ends up right close to the bow. And then I’m going to take my wire and just put it through the hex nut, bring it back around. I’ll put it through one more time so it stays flat on the front of my bow.

Then, I’m going to just bring it around to the back, tie a knot, fluff out my bow. And I’m going to put this aside as well.

Add the fabric

Now, I have this really pretty fabric. So, what I’m going to do is take this water bottle. I will make sure I line this upright, and I’ve just got these little glue strips that I put on here. Align the bottle there. And I’m going to take another glue strip and just put that here and put another one here. And then I’m just going to roll this up here. Then I’m going to go to the top and I’m just going to take a glue dot this time. I’m just going to kind of fold this in and put a glue dot here and then put another one here. Just put that aside.

Then I’m going to come back and cut the ends off of my wire. Or actually, I have a better idea. I think I’m just going to tie this around my bottle to give it a little extra. And I’m just going to kind of clip this to give it a little bit of the firecracker kind of look.

And then, I’m going to do the same thing to this one. I’m going to just put the bottle aside. And I’m going to take a piece of my gold Bowdabra Bow Wire. And I have these really cute little stars that I actually cut off of a patriotic garland. So, I’m going to just stick a glue dot right here and put them together. Finally, I  just glue dot the back here, put it onto my Bowdabra Bow Wire, take this back over here. And I’m just going to pull this down here through my Bowdabra Bow Wire. And now you have this really cute firecracker centerpiece.
