Mini Bowdabra Ponytail Bow

Posted on April 26, 2011


Make a bow and attach it to a  ponytail all in one easy step!  To create a hair bow with elastic attached, begin with the rubber-band in the Mini Bowdabra.  No extra tying the bow to the ponytail you finish the bow with everything completely done!

To begin place the Hair Bow Tool & Ruler over the Mini Bowdabra.  The Hair Bow Tool & Ruler will help you to measure you hair bow loops exactly.  The Hair Bow Tool & Ruler also come with an interactive that gives you step-by-step instructions on how to make 70 different hair bows.  Next, cut a piece of 18″ Bowdabra Bow Wire and fold it in half and lay it into the Mini Bowdabra.

Lay an elastic into the Mini Bowdabra and place the Bowdabra Bow Wire strands over one end.  Fold the wire underneath the Mini Bowdabra to keep it from getting in your way.

Next, using the Ribbon Length Cutting Chart (found on the Hair Bow Tool & Ruler’s interactive CD) cut the ribbon to make a 3″ Basic Bow with 8 loops and 2″ tails.  Next, follow the CDs step-by-step instructions to create each loop.

Once, you have created 8 Loops scrunch the hair bow down with the Mini Bowdabra Wand.

While the bow is still in the Mini Bowdabra, thread the two loose ends of the Bowdabra Bow Wire through the loop at the other end. Pull the Bowdabra Bow Wire tightly while the bow is still in the Mini Bowdabra.

Gently pull the bow out of the Mini Bowdabra. Separate the two loose ends of the Bowdabra Bow Wire and bring them around to the back of the bow. To tie off the bow, pinch the Bowdabra Bow Wire securely against the bow. Twist the bow 4 to 6 times in a clockwise direction.

Fluff bow.

Optional: Bring the Bowdabra Bow Wire around to the front and attach a button and trim away wire.

This style ponytail bow is perfect for all ages.  Give as a gift to mom for Mother’s Day or create cheerleader and soccer bows with the elastic already attached!

The Hair Bow Tool and Ruler easily fits over the Mini Bowdabra. Bowdabra Ribbons Crafts & Things Store sells the items individually or you can purchase the Hair Bow Creator Pack which comes with the Mini Bowdabra, Hair Bow Tool, & Ribbon.
