Easy DIY Thanksgiving Decor and Hair Bows

Join Sandy Sandler to make super super simple and Easy DIY Thanksgiving Decor and HairBows in minutes with the Bowdabra and the Mini Bowdabra, the world’s easiest bowmaker.

CUTE LITTLE SCRUNCHY BOW

Sandy scrunches a 10” sliver scrunchy ribbon in the Mini Bowdabra and adds a few pieces of blue regular ribbon (4” long, 12.5” wide). She ties it all and spreads the ribbons to finish the cute little scrunchy bow that can be used for Hanukkah and Thanksgiving decorations as well as a hat or cap bow.

THANKSGIVING CENTERPIECE TABLE/TREETOP BOW

Sandy scrunches a green mesh (1.5 yards long and 18” wide) with twist and turn method in the Large Bowdabra making loops followed by printed ribbons (5” wide and 23” long) over it in ‘X’ arrangement. She inserts few strips of green ribbon (12” long and 5” wide) over it and a golden ribbon (3-yard long and 2.5” wide) with twist and turn method making loops. It is followed by few pretty golden mesh ribbons (5” long and 2” wide) over it. Lastly, Sandy adds decorative berries to it and ties it all, shaping the edges and the loops to finish the gorgeous centerpiece/Thanksgiving bow.

BOUTONNIERE FOR WEDDING OR HOLIDAY PARTY

Sandy again returns to Mini Bowdabra. She inserts a few golden dovetailed mesh ribbons (8” long and 2.5” wide) and an 18” long ribbon with twist and turn method making loops. She adds a couple of printed ribbon (12” long and 2” wide) over it making loops with decorative burlap rose over it. Scrunching another ribbon (12” long and 1.5” wide) with the loops, Sandy adds a few decorative bead strips and ties it all to finish the beautiful bow that can serve as a boutonniere for the wedding or holiday party.

HUGE THANKSGIVING/CENTERPIECE DÉCOR BOW

Starting the session, Sandy uses a golden wired ribbon (48” long and 18” wide) that she inserts with two mesh ribbons (46” long and 2” wide) in Bowdabra. She adds another golden mesh ribbon (26” long and 2.5” wide) followed by two more ribbons (28” long and 2” wide).

Now, Sandy adds an Oxford ribbon (38” long and 4” wide) along with more different-colored ribbons (17” long and 1.5” wide). Giving it a decorative touch, Sandy further adds a bean string to the ribbons and tops it with two golden ribbons (20” long and 2.5” wide). Adding to the décor, she adds more beaded garlands to it and ultimately adds a printed golden ribbon (2 yards and 27” long and 2.5” wide) with twist and turn method making loops. She ties it and spreads the edges and loops to finish the huge pretty bow.

PRETTY BURLAP BOW

Sandy inserts a burlap ribbon (13” long and 4” wide) with a white lace (13.5” long and 2.5” wide). She scrunches another burlap ribbon and lace of same dimensions and uses a green mesh ribbon (26” long and 1.5” wide) making loops. She inserts another ribbon (24.5” long and 1.5” wide) making loops in a X manner. She inserts a few 4.5” long bead strings to it. She ties it all and spreads the loops to finish the bow.

She adds another similar ribbon with same dimensions along with a dovetailed printed ribbon (17” long and 2.5” wide). Finishing the session, Sandy adds a printed ribbon (a yard and 27” long) making loops.

 

PRETTY GOLDEN HAIR BOW
