Video DIY Patriotic cheer bow

We’re going to make a really fun patriotic cheer bow. So, I’ll take my mini Bowdabra, and I’m taking my Bowdabra Bow Wire and folding it in half and tucking the ends under just to keep them out of my way.

Now I have two pieces of ribbon. I have my red and my red, white, and blue patriotic. So, these are my tails, and I’m just going to fold it in half. And I’m going to take the center and make sure that my red, white, and blue is centered inside my red ribbon.

I’m going to do a little mountain-up crease. So, I’m just bending it in the middle and scrunching it down. I’m going to center my red, white, and blue ribbon. And I’m just going to make that little mountain up-crease and stick that down into my Bowdabra.

Next, I’m going to fold it back over. Bring this here and do my mountain there, and push that down into my Mini Bowdabra. Then I’m going to center, again, my red, white, and blue ribbon and find the center of this and just scrunch this down into my Mini. Then, I’m just going to fold these up and make sure they’re even, and they are.

So, I’ll take my wand and just scrunch everything down here. And then I have this really pretty strand of red beads. On top of them, I have a little bit shorter strand of beads. And, I’m going to just turn my Mini here and give it one good scrunch for good measure. Then I’m going to take my strands and pull them through the slipknot that I have. I pull everything really tight while it’s still in the Bowdabra. Pull it out. Take my ends, bring them around to the back through my pearls, or beads.

(Tie and Knot)

To finish, I would just tie this onto a ponytail holder and then clip the ends. And you have a really, really cute patriotic cheer bow.
