If you live near or around a Hobby Lobby, I'm sure you have seen their delish burlap ribbon.
And if you are like me, you just stood there and strained your brain trying to think of something you could make with it.
I even left the store with nothing because I got so overwhelmed.
Please tell me I'm not the only one?
oh girlfriend way in the back... I see you with your hand up.
It's OK.. we are not alone.
What ya have to do sometimes is just walk out.
I returned a few days later and felt like a new woman!
I picked up one roll of wired burlap...
(one roll made 4 bows)
The polka dot ribbon came from the dollar tree.
It was just enough to make one bow.
I measured my burlap and polka dot ribbon..
about 2 1/2 yards give or take.
Once I had my ribbon cut, I placed the polka on top of the burlap.
I measured up about 10 inches and grabbed the middle holding it tight.
The 10 inches below will be my tail.
Holding the middle I made a loop.
Once my loop met the middle, I twisted it so the polka dot would remain on top.
Once twisted in the middle, I looped on the other side.
I repeated this process until I had an even amount of loops on each side and enough for another 10 inch tail.
Burlap is thick and hard to work with so don't give up if your bow falls apart the first few tries.
If it should, just start over again until you get the hang of it.
Once you get your loops in line, take a small piece of jute and tie it tight.
Your jute should hold your bow in place and in some cases, can be used to attach your bow where needed.
My favorite part is the fluffing of the loops.
God bless the soul that made wire ribbon.
The wire allows your loops to stand loud and proud!
You made need to twist your loops around till you get them just right.
A very sweet couple dear to my heart have been blessed and we get to share in their excitement!
Marc and I will be hosting a gender reveal this weekend.
The suspense has about did me in y'all...
More to share as we get there...
