How to make fun bows for your chairs! :)




I made two fun bows to decorate the bride and groom's chairs.....
 
 
The chairs at my cousin's recent wedding. :)


I layered about 8 sheets of tissue paper, accordian folded them and rounded the corners with a pair of scissors. Then I secured the center with ribbon and opened it up to create a bow with scalloped edges [as pictured]. Pouf each layer of tissue for some added texture.


I cut petals for the bloom using felt.


To make the loopy felt blooms. Fold a piece of felt into two and cut strips at the fold. The longer the cut, the longer your loops. Roll and glue to secure.

Adhere loopy felt bloom to the petals. [I used a hot glue gun.]

Adhere bloom to the tissue paper bow.


Add beads and trim if you desire. Add a safety pin to the back and pin it on your chair! :)
