If you have a little girl, you know one important thing about little girls’ outfits: everything looks more adorable with matching hair bows. Back when I was in college, I worked in a children’s clothing store, so I knew this better than anyone. The perfect addition to any ensemble was a set of hair bows in that season’s hottest colors. But let’s be honest, most of our customers were spending their hard-earned dollars on wardrobe basics like jeans and boots, not frivolous accessories like hair bows. Hair bows are the type of accessory thrown into a gift from Grandma or begged off of Mom after being especially good. They are not the type of thing you buy in every single color or factor into your back-to-school budget. But with the Bowdabra tools from Consumer Crafts, you can magically make your daughter’s wardrobe as adorable as it should be without breaking the bank.
The Bowdabra is a tool that helps you to quickly and easily make bows out of any ribbon you choose. Make full-sized bows with the Bowdabra or mini bows with the Mini Bowdabra! You can easily buy lengths of ribbon in different colors for just pennies, and then twist and tie them into bows to make your own accessories. The Bowdabra comes with an 18-page how-to booklet and an instructional DVD so you can see the many ways to use the tool. The only other supplies you will need are extra Bowdabra bow wire and hair clips or pins that you can attach the bows to.
To see a few different ways to use the Bowdabra, check out the Bowdabra projects on FaveCrafts. One of the most useful ones is the Back to School Hair Bows tutorial. With these simple instructions you can make an entire collection of hair bows. Each hair accessory is made with two different bows, so you can customize the color combinations to perfectly fit your daughter’s wardrobe. Simply attach the bows to a metal hair clip wrapped in ribbon to make them easy to use in your daughter’s hair.
The Back to School Hair Bows are great for everyday outfits, but if you want to make your daughter something extra special, learn how to make a Sassy Hair Bow with multiple ribbons and feather boas. This bow is a great project to do with your daughter. Choose ribbons that are shiny, glittery, and over-the-top and watch as your little girl learns to love crafting! You can also use Sassy Hair Bows as party favors for younger girls or as party activities for older girls.
Of course, the magic of Bowdabra isn’t just for little girls! You can use the Bowdabra to make decorations for virtually anything. Attach handmade bows to cards, invitations, candles, gifts, vases, floral arrangements, and more. Bowdabra works real magic when it comes to weddings. Cut down on serious DIY time by making bows for party favors, invitations, and table decorations with the Bowdabra. We especially like the delicate Tulle Flowers you can make with Bowdabra wire.
