I was so excited that I learned how to make a quick and easy bow, I thought I would show you. You start with a pretty ribbon. I liked this one (the ribbon with wire on each side works best) from the Dollar Store -- where else right?
You figure out how big you want your bow and roll it about five times. You can tell how big by taking the roll and folding it in half.
Once you have it folded in half, you snip the middle corners
When you unfold it, it should look like this.
Take a thin piece of ribbon and tie it right in the middle.
Then you just start pulling and plumping the loops.
Pull one loop into the middle and fan the rest around it. There you have it. The more you roll it, the fuller the bow. Easy Peasy.
This year, I found these cute little sparkle eggs at the Dollar tree and cut the loop off. They were just small enough to fit into the opening -- yeah.
I know you can barely tell, but, I did hang three of the eggs under the bow. Oh, and do you see the plastic purple egg? My kids played a trick on me - he he. Big stinkers (they are definitely not little anymore).
Happy Easter Everyone.
I party here when I want to get down and get funky - ha ha.
