Make a quick and easy hostess gift in minutes

Materials:

 

Bowdabra

24” Gold Bowdabra Wire

1.5” x 22” Gold Rhinestone Mesh

1.5” x 14.5” Gold Rhinestone Mesh

2” x 22” Ivory and Gold Wired Ribbon

Floral Spray

Burlap Rose

Hand Towel

Zots or other Adhesive Dots

So, this is a really fun, super simple way to spruce up your bathroom décor or make a unique hostess gift in minutes.

First, I start with a hand towel, and all I’m going to do is just roll it up a little bit here. So, now I’ve rolled my hand towel. Then, I’m going to take some of our rhinestone mesh, and I’m going to take an adhesive dot because this will hold it. And the adhesive dot will easily come off the towel, whereas, with a glue gun, it might ruin your towel. So, that’s why I like to use these adhesive dots.

Then, I’m just going to put that like that and set it aside. Now I’m going to take my Bowdabra, and I’m going to take my Bowdabra Bow Wire. I’m folding it in half and laying it down into my Bowdabra and just tucking the ends underneath so they stay out of my way.

Next, I have this beautiful floral pick, I’m just going to lay this down in here. Then, I have my Bowdabra, a rhinestone mesh, and this really pretty ribbon. And I’m just going to lay the mesh on top of the ribbon and I’m going to put it upside-down and just try to make sure my mesh is centered. And I’m going to now do a little mountain-up like we do for our hairbows. Now, I’m going to fold this back around. I’m just going to make a simple two-loop bow. And again, I’ll make sure that my mesh is in the center, and loop it around and put that in upside-down.

Next, I’m just going to keep my mesh in the center and put a little mountain-up there. I just make sure that they’re even. Actually, I think I want to pull this over just a little bit. Then I’ll take my really pretty rose. And I love these burlap roses because they really work for any time of the year.

To finish my bow, I’m going to take my Bowdabra wand and scrunch everything into my Bowdabra. Now, I’m going to take my wire, pull it through the slipknot that I have, and pull it tight while it’s still in the Bowdabra. Pull it out. And as you can see, everything stays pretty tight once you’ve got your Bowdabra Bow Wire on there. I’m going to separate the ends, bring it around to the back and then just tie a knot, tie another knot, and clip my wire. This is what I love about the wire,  you can just clip it.

Finally, I’m just going to shape it, and shape it here, and shape the other side.. And you have a really beautiful little décor piece for your bathroom.
