Fall Wall Decor with DecoFun Bow Maker

Fall Wall Decor
Howdy y'all! This month over at the Designer Crafts Connection we are creating and hopping with DecoFun Bowmaker. Y'all know you love a good bow just like I do. I have put mine to use by adding some fall flare to my wall decor in the kitchen.  There are lots of great projects, so when you get to the bottom of the post don't forget to hop over to the main blog.


Deco Fun Bow Maker

 The first step is to wrap your ribbon around the Bowmaker. Now, I didn't realize until I went to make the second layer of the bow, that this was not correct. See how my ribbon comes to the front every time then wraps around the back of the posts? This will not work if you have a printed ribbon, because it will show the backside (plain side) of the ribbon. Lesson learned.

Gathering ribbon bow
After you have wrapped the ribbon, it is time to gather it up and tie it off. Simply pinch the ribbon together and tie with one of the enclosed twist ties or a piece of wire (see next photo).

How to tie a bow

Multi layer bow
So I used three different ribbons to create my bow, because more is always better, right? My kitchen is VERY spring like. For the fall I always try to add some touches here and there to try and bring it into the season. It was SO easy to create this beautiful bow and add it to my blackboard.

Wire edge ribbon
I made the base layer of the bow using wire edge ribbon, which will give the bow lots of extra fluff and allow me to shape it easier.  I love these fall colors! The two top ribbons are from DecoFun and the burlap ribbon is one from my stash. You can find it here. It is great for lots of projects around the house.
