I love holiday crafting, don't you? Making handmade ornaments is so fun. This ornament is so simple but can have a stunning effect depending on your ribbon and fabric choices. So pick your favorite ribbon/fabric and let's get started!
Let's make the bow first, it's the highlight of this project.
Step 1: Loop a piece of bow wire and place the looped end on one side in the horizontal slit of the Bowdabra.
Step 2: Place a piece of ribbon through the horizontal slit of the Bowdabra.
Step 3:Continue adding pieces of ribbon and looped ribbon until you are satisfied.
Step 4: Pull both ends of the bow wire, pushing the loose ends through the loop.
Now, let's begin working on the ornament ball.
Step 2: Use bow wire to tie up the gathered fabric.
Step 3: Cut the excess fabric off, just past the bow wire knot.
Step 6: If you want, you can add embellishments to the bow. I put a button in the middle, to cover up the bow wire.
How cute are these ornaments? I am now obsessed with making different bows! There are so many ways to make a bow using Bowdabra (loops, slanted edges, v-shaped edges, a mix of different ribbons...). Fun, right?
