“Hi, I’m Sandy Sandler, the creator of the Bowdabra Bow Maker. Now, I’m going to show you how to make this really cute and super simple fall wreath or fall door bow. So, let’s get started.

The first thing I’m going to do is take my Bowdabra Bow wire that I’ve folded it in half. I’m going to lay it into my Bowdabra, and I’m just going to tuck the ends underneath so they stay out of my way.

Then, I’m going to take this really pretty Bowdabra ribbon.  It is sort of like a strip of glitter with a burlap edge. I’ll take the right side of the ribbon and scrunch that down into my Bowdabra. Then, I’m going to fold it over, and I’m going to, again, take the right side of the ribbon and just scrunch that into my Bowdabra.

Next, I’m going to come here and scrunch the center and just sort of shape my loops. Then, we’re going to do exactly the same thing. I’ll take the right side and scrunch that in. Now, I’m going to come back around, and I’m going to, again, take the right side, scrunch it in, come to the center here and scrunch that in.

Add the glitter ribbon

So now, I’m going to take this beautiful glitter ribbon. I’m just going to go to the center and scrunch that in. And I’m just kind of putting everything in opposite directions. Put this in here. And then, I’m going to take my mesh, which automatically curls and I’m just going to scrunch it in here. I have another piece of mesh, and we’re just going to push that in diagonally.

Next, I have a really pretty splattered paint ribbon. I take the right side and scrunch that in. And then, take the right side and scrunch this in here.

So now, again, I’ll take the right side of the ribbon, scrunch that in. And I’m going to fold this over and scrunch it in.  I go to the center and scrunch it. And if you want to make sure you’re in the center, you just kind of fold your loops up to make sure that they’re the same size. I’m just going to take my wand and give everything a really good push here.

Now, what I’ll do is take this last piece. Again, I’m going to take the right side of the ribbon and scrunch that into my Bowdabra. I’ll bring it back around, scrunch that in, come to the center here and scrunch it in.

Finishing your bow

Finally, I’m going to take my Bowdabra Bow Wire, and I’m going to just pull this through my slipknot. I pull it tight while it’s still in the Bowdabra and then pull it out. I’m going to separate the ends and bring them around to the back. I’m going to tie a knot.

You could use this bow for a centerpiece too which I am going to.  If I’m going to use it for a fall door bow I clip the ends. Or to use on a wreath I use the ends to tie onto a wreath. But I’m just going to clip it since I’m going to make this as if it’s a centerpiece.

To finish, all I have to do is just shape out my loops. And these are wire edge ribbons, which makes it really easy to shape. Then, we’ll just kind of pop this out here, and puff this. And kind of bring my gold down there. And you have this really, really super easy to make fall door bow or wreath bow.
