How to Make Super Easy DIY Wedding Headpiece, Hair Bows

A wedding headpiece is an inevitable part of a bride’s dress. Sandy Sandler, the creator of the Bowdabra, the world’s easiest bowmaker, shows you how to #design super easy and gorgeously attractive #headpiece and #hair #bows for wedding functions using the Bowdabra.

WEDDING HEADPIECE

To start with, Sandy places alternate pieces of 5-8” wide and 45” long pink and white tulle in the Bowdabra tool to which she further adds the floral sprays, a couple of leaves, roses and finally the 4” x 15” piece of white lace. She adds some more floral sprays and another piece of lace and scrunches down everything with the Bowdabra wand and ties all together with a wire.
To this headpiece, she further adjuncts a hair clip making it a complete and beautiful wedding headpiece in less than 10 minutes.

SUPER SIMPLE HAIR BOWS

Sandy next creates a simple cute hair bow. She ties the middle of dovetailed ribbon and the ends of the longer ribbons together using Mini Bowdabra and pulls them tight with a wire. The bow when shaped and glued to a hair clip proves to be a perfect hair accessory for any occasion made from three different scraps of ribbons.

SPARKLING WHITE AND PINK HAIR BOW

Sandy folds the sparkling tulle into half and scrunches it into the Mini Bowdabra to which she further adds pink ribbon in a criss-cross manner. To enhance the bow she fastens two pieces of Rhinestone Mesh ribbon and pulls the wire tightly through the slipknot to hold the material together.
This stunning and fluffy bow can be used as a wrist piece, hair bow or could even be tied to a dress.

CUTE LITTLE PUPPY BOW

Sandy starts by scrunching down the web luminescent ribbon. She then places three paw print ribbon pieces, loops the black ribbons into the Bowdabra opening and finally beautifies the bow with a strip of Rhinestone Mesh ribbon. Tying everything together, she is ready with a stunning mini bow which you can tie on to your dog’s collar.

BEAUTIFUL RIBBON ROSE

To design a ribbon rose, Sandy initially scrunches down the pieces of green ribbon as leaves. In addition to this, she adjuncts pink ribbon petals curved at the ends and a pair of sparkling pink net ribbon for imparting an attractive look to the flower. Eventually, she ties them all together with the Bowdabra wire and shapes it into a vibrant looking rose. To turn this rose into a hair bow, she fixes a hair clip to it.
