Christmas Trees with May Arts Ribbons

Welcome :)  Have you enjoyed all of the the May Arts trees?  Lots of beautiful things there.  Here is my tree and how I made these fun bows.
Our tree is really very "kid" friendly with bright colors and Hallmark ornaments.  I used 406-15-14 to create some full loopy bows to fill in some of the spaces but still keeping it casual with the burlap.

I used the Bowdabra to make these bows, I took really only minutes.  Just think of this contraption as just an extra set of hands to hold everything down.
It is very easy, 1 insert your wire 2 loop your ribbon (how ever many loops you want) 3. tie off 4. Fluff

I used this burlap ribbon, I love this ribbon it is one of my all time favorites from May Arts.
Make sure you stop by and check out everyone's wonderful trees.
