DIY Bow using a Tie for Father's Day

Check out my Father's Day Gift Basket that I made for the Bowdabra Blog. When you click over you will get the tutorial on how to make fun gift tags and a bow tag. I used one of their ideas to make a Bow using my husband's Tie. It is super easy to do and PERFECT for Father's Day or any male gift. You can use a tie that is already in your home or buy one! The tie can be a gift, too!

 Fold 24" of Bowdabra wire in half and add to the center of the Mini Bowdabra
 Start with the small end of the tie and add to the Mini Bowdabra. Keep folding it back in forth.
 You will need to push it in as it gets thick and keep a finger with moderate pressure on the center.

 When you have used all the tie that you want, keep one hand holding one side and pull up the Bowdabra Wire, loop the ends and tie off tight.
 Pull out of the Mini Bowdabra, flip over and knot it.
 I turned away for a second and one of my cats, Truffle, jumped up and started eating the Bowdabra Wire. It was really cute!
 Keep the extra Bowdabra Wire attached and use it to wrap around your gift basket, gift bag, etc.
 It is that simple! 
Stop over at Bowdabra to get the scoop on what is in the basket and how to make the tags. If you stop over, can you please leave a comment? I would love to know how many of you stopped in and visited! Thank you so much!
