Super Easy DIY Valentine’s Day Bows and Décor

With Valentine’s Day round the corner, Sandy Sandler, creator of the Bowdabra, picks up the world’s easiest bowmaker, the Bowdabra to create 8 amazingly simple DIY Valentine’s Day Bows and Decor in minutes.

CUTE LITTLE PUPPY BOW

Sandy begins the project by scrunching a 17”-long red scrunchy ribbon in big Bowdabra. She tops it with a mesh ribbon and scrunches another red scrunchy ribbon of same dimension. Then she scrunches a silver scrunchy ribbon on it and tops it again with a red scrunchy ribbon. She inserts 4 strips of Bowdabra Rhinestone silver mesh (6.5” long each) over it and ties it all, fluffing it to finish the cute little bow that can be tied to a puppy’s leash.

PRETTY WRIST AND HAT BOW

Sandy scrunches a red ribbon (8” long and 9” wide) along with a red stripped ribbon (32” long) in twist and turn method making loops. She uses a polka dot ribbon (1.5” wide) and scrunches it in the same manner as the previous ribbon, making loops. Once done, she ties it all and shapes the loops to finish the beautiful wrist and hat bow.

PRETTY FLOWER DÉCOR FOR TABLE CENTERPIECE

Sandy uses a dovetailed red zebra striped ribbon (12.5” long and 1” wide) that she scrunches in the Bowdabra along with a decorative light pick. She tops it with a white stripped ribbon (26” long and 1.5” wide) making loops. She scrunches another red zebra stripped ribbon (9” long and 1” wide) followed by a flower pick over it. Scrunching another ribbon (16” long and 2” wide) over it, she shapes the tails and loops to finish the beautiful centerpiece flower décor for the table.

SUPER SIMPLE PRETTY HAIR BOW FOR BERET OR PONYTAIL HOLDER

Sandy scrunches a pretty dovetailed red ribbon (7” long and 2.5” wide). Using 3 white with gold zebra print ribbons (5” long and 1” wide each) and a pretty tulle (11” long and 2.5” wide), she adds 3 korker ribbons (5” long each) to complete the arrangement. She ties it all to finish the pretty little Valentine’s Day bow.

PRETTY LITTLE BRACELET

Sandy uses a Bowdabra rhinestone mesh (11” long and 1.5” wide), scrunching it with a dovetailed ribbon (6.5” long and 2.5” wide). She uses a different colored dovetailed ribbon (9” long and 1.5” wide), making loops. Topping it with a rhinestone pick, Sandy ties it all to finish the cute little bracelet. The rhinestone mesh can be stick with glue to make it in the shape of a bracelet.

MASK FOR VALENTINE’S DAY

For this project, Sandy uses the mini Bowdabra. She scrunches a red scrunchy ribbon followed by a few silver zebra print ribbons (4” long and 1” wide). She inserts flower picks over it and uses a boa (15” long) with twist and turn method making loops. Tying it all, she glues the bow to the mask that can be worn for Valentine’s Day party.

CUTE HAIR BOW

Sandy returns to the Large Bowdabra and uses a red ribbon (37” long and 9” wide) that she tops with white tulle (1 yard long and 6” wide). She inserts a few tubular mesh (9” long each) and korker ribbons (7.5” long each). Once finished with the scrunching, she ties it all and shapes it to finish the cute hair bow.

BEAUTIFUL CENTERPIECE BOW FOR CANDLELIGHT DINNER

Sandy uses white tulle (2 and 7/8th yard long and 9” wide) that she scrunches with twist and turn method making loops. She inserts another white tulle (5.5 yard long) in the similar manner as the previous one, making loops and uses a red ribbon (1 yard and 32” long and 2.5” wide), scrunching it with twist and turn method making loops.

Sandy adds another white tulle (2.5” wide) and scrunches it making loops. Next she uses a pink ribbon (26” long and 1.5” wide) making loops and ties it all, shaping the loops to finish the pretty centerpiece that can be used to decorate table for candlelight dinner on Valentine’s Day.
