Floral arrangement with Bowdabra Bow

Materials:

 

Instructions:

Begin by cutting and trimming a foam floral block to fit inside of your terra cotta pot.  Next, trim the moss covering and place it on top of the foam.

Next, using wire cutters trim the floral bunches one stem at a time.   Trim the stem at an angle to give it a pointed end. The pointed end will make it easy to place the stem through the moss and floral block.

Continue adding silk flowers to your arrangement till you fill like you have enough at varying heights and colors.

 Next, tie a ribbon around the top of the pot and dovetail the ends.

Make the bow

 

Begin by cutting a piece of 18” Bowdabra Bow Wire, fold it in half, and place it into the Mini Bowdabra. To form your first loop place the ribbon end into the Mini Bowdabra Towers. Fold the ribbon using the ruler as your guide and create your first loop.

Continue folding the loops back and forth using the ruler to make exact even loops. Once you have enough loops trim your ribbon off of the spool.  Scrunch down with your Mini Bowdabra Wand.

While the bow is still in the Mini Bowdabra, thread the two loose ends of the Bowdabra Bow Wire through the loop at the other end. Pull the Bowdabra Bow Wire tightly while the bow is still in the Mini Bowdabra.  Gently pull the bow out of the Mini Bowdabra. Separate the two loose ends of the Bowdabra Bow Wire and bring them around to the back of the bow. To tie off the bow, pinch the Bowdabra Bow Wire securely against the bow. Twist the bow 4 to 6 times in a clockwise direction.

Fluff bow and tie it onto the ribbon around the front of the terra cotta pot.  Spiral the remaining Bowdabra Bow Wire around a pencil to create fun ringlets.
