DIY: Bow Garland

diy bow garland

This morning I made a rash and possibly regretful decision. For some reason our dog was barking at 6 am so instead of going back to sleep before my kids wake up, like any smart person, I decided to cut bows out of paper and string them on a garland. Ya know… priorities. I blame my bad decision making on my lack of sleep. ; )
Then while Collin made breakfast I turned Myles’s room into a temporary baby girl’s nursery.
Lola approved.

//First, I found 5 of my favorite Dear Lizzy papers from my Daydreamer collection.
//Next, I bought a bow file through Silhouette that costs 99 cents. And arranged it so I could cut to bows on one paper. When you have the file in Silhouette Studio, right click on the displayed cut and click “Ungroup” then you can arrange it better so that you can fit more on one page.
//Last I used hot glue to put the bows together and then glued them to yellow twine. I have a Dear Lizzy ribbon pack and twine pack on sale here.
//Don’t forget ice cream bribery.
Quite an easy DIY but darling as ever. Could be used as decor, a birthday party you could use single bows for packaging and presents.

      Yes! Thank you for the inspiration!

      I am making this for my best friend’s baby shower and she is going to flip when she see’s it! Even thinking about throwing in some glitter cardstock to really pump up the volume.

    SO SO cute!!!!! Loving the paper too:) And that Lola, I hardly recognized her. She looks so different, I think because she’s getting so big girl/grown up looking!!! She’s a doll!!! Was the icecream at like 6:30a.m. Whatever it takes, AND ice cream is good anytime!!!!!

    I do that, too! Wake up before the kids wake up. The uninterrupted time is amazing, but I *know* it’s a bad move. Especially when I’m snappy mid afternoon. :/
    The bow garland is so cute. Wish I had a Silhouette!

    Super cute. I love your gold cushion stool! Where did you find it!
    Stampin Up and possibly others sell a bow die for a bow just like that for cutting out with a big shot or other die cutting machine if you don’t have that software. Thanks so much 🙂

    Is there anyway to make a PDF or JPG file of the bow template? I would love to make this, but I do not have a silhouette machine, or access to one!

    Thanks in Advance,
