So now, we’re going to make this really cute poinsettia ponytail holder.

First, I’m going to start with my Mini Bowdabra. I have my Bowdabra Bow Wire, I’ve folded it in half, and I’m going to lay it down into my Mini. I just tuck it underneath. Now what I’m going to do is I have these green pieces of ribbon that are going to be my petals. And, I’ve already pointed the ends, so I’m just going to go find the center.

Next, I’ll take the center and I’m just going to do a little mountain-up fold in the middle and scrunch that down into my Mini Bowdabra. And, I’m going to shape this as I go so that the leaves kind of go. Shaping makes the leaves look really pretty as I’m going.

Now, I take this, this is my little red pieces of ribbon. These are for my poinsettias, and I have, again, cut pointy ends. And I have to tell you, it was really funny cutting them because I kept wanting to dovetail. So, I’m going to scrunch that in there.

Next, I’m going to take my wand and scrunch everything down. Now what I’m going to do is pull this end through the loop.  I hold the flower down really tight, while I pull it out. Then, I’m going to bring this around to the back. I’m going to tie a knot, and double-knot it.

And then, I’m going to take my ponytail holder ponytail holder and tie this on. Finally, I’m going to do another double-knot. And here we go. And once I’ve done my double-knot, then I’m going to just clip the ends really tight next to my ponytail holder.

To finish, I’m going to shape out my poinsettia and my leaves. And then I’m going to add my little piece of mesh. I have this liquid silk glue, which is really nice because it doesn’t stick to your fingers. It will hold this really tight onto the flower. So, I’m just going to put this right here. And you can see, you have this wonderful finished, beautiful poinsettia ponytail holder.
