Here’s an easy Halloween wreath tutorial for you. Carrie needed a new Halloween wreath so she picked out some ribbon and I put it together for her on a Deco mesh base. Love the little stripped Trick or Treat sign! All the supplies came from Trendy Tree

The tutorial is broken down into two parts. First is the Halloween bow. The first two bows were made by the Terri Bow technique using the Probow. Terri Marshal of Mil & Dil Designs is a dear friend of mine and she created the Terri Bow technique. It makes a beautiful funky-style bow and it’s great for using assorted ribbons. Here’s that video link:
The EZ Bowmaker was just to show that you can make the same kind of bow whether you use the Probow or EZ Bowmaker. Or, you can just free-hand a bow. You can do the same thing with a Bowdabra. The Bowdabra and EZ Bowmaker just hold the ribbon in place for you while you make your loops and tails.
