Celebrate your Patriotism with Frugal and Green DIY Decor with Sandy Sandler

This Patriotic Day, pay tribute to the martyrs who gave their life for the nation by decorating and gifting these patriotic bows by Sandy Sandler, creator of Bowdabra bow maker.

PATRIOTIC FLIP-FLOP DÉCOR

Sandy begins the project with scrunching Bowdabra silver scrunchy ribbon (20” long) in the Mini Bowdabra tool. She spreads the ends and adds some blue pointed ribbons (4” long each). Next, she tops it with a few colorful and pretty wired ribbon petals and ties it all, spreading the ends and the petals. She ties the bow to a flip-flop to finish the beautiful decoration bow for the flip-flop.

Sandy switches to Large Bowdabra for this project. She scrunches red mesh (6.5 yards long and 6” wide) making big loops and adds two dovetailed red ribbons (20” long and 9” wide each) over it. Then, she scrunches another red ribbon (1 yard and 19” long) making loops with an X manner. Sandy now scrunches a blue ribbon (1 yard long and 2.5” wide) over it all, again making loops in an X manner. She adds another piece of blue ribbon (12” long) and scrunches it over. Sandy then adds some beautiful Patriotic Day picks to it and tops it with a beautifully stripped ribbon (1 yard long) making loops. She adds two more blue ribbons (12” long each) over it and scrunches yet another pretty blue ribbon. She ties it all to finish the super pretty buffet table bow/centerpiece bow for any kind of patriotic event.
