Spring Wreath

Today is the first day of spring. What better way to kick off spring then with a spring wreath!

Looks perfect on any entryway door and catches the sunlight wonderfully!

Materials Needed:
Mini Bowdabra®
MDF Wreath Form
Curling Ribbon
Scrunchy Ribbon
Sheer Ribbon

1. Begin by cutting an 18" piece of curling ribbon and folding it in half. Place the curling ribbon into the center of the Mini Bowdabra.

2. Using the large silver metallic ribbon place it into the Mini Bowdabra like an accordion. Trim the metallic ribbon once you get close to the top of the Mini Bowdabra towers.

3. Then use one of the sheer 1" width to make a bow with six loops. Form a loop and then fold it back and form so that there are three loops on either side of the Mini Bowdabra towers. Scrunch down with the Mini Bowdabra Wand.

4. Take the ends of the curling ribbon and put it through the loop that was formed when you folded the curling ribbon in half. Pull the curling ribbon tightly and securely tie it together.

5. Then tie the bow to the wreath form. Bring the curling ribbon to the front of the bow and curl the ends.

6. Alternate the color of the sheer ribbon and curling ribbon around the base of the wreath.

7. Hang Spring Wreath in an entryway where it can catch the sun's rays and sparkle!
