Show Me How 2 make a Clover Bow for a Wreath

Bows, Bows, Bows, so many ways to tie a bow!

Have you downloaded our Bow App? It will show you how to tie a beautiful bow that you can add to so many things!

For Wreathes, we love to use a Clover Bow and layer it with several ribbons.

Choose a wired ribbon and practice until you love it! Shape the bow out and wire it into the wreath.

Show Me How to Make a Fiesta Wreath

Fiesta Wreath Ingredients

Fiesta in San Antonio begins this year on April 10th. Fiesta is an annual Spring celebration that  started in 1891 when a group of citizens decided to honor the heroes of the Alamo and Battle of San Jacinto with a Battle of Flowers.
The first parade had horse-drawn carriages, bicycles decorated with fresh flowers and floats carrying children dressed as flowers. The participants pelted each other with blossoms. It is the largest celebration in San Antonio and includes many parades(River , Flambeau, & Battle of Flowers) festivals(Oyster Bake & King Williams Fair), NIOSA, and a city wide holiday for Battle of Flowers Parade.

To decorate homes, people add Fiesta wreathes to their front door with lots of ribbon, flowers, in bright colors.

Show Me a Fiesta Familia for Cinco de Mayo

Show Me A Fiesta

A fiesta theme party is perfect for Cinco de Mayo, graduation, or as Taco Sunday for youth to raise money for camp.  This past Sunday we held a Fiesta Familia Taco lunch at our church. The youth help decorate,cook, serve, and clean up to raise money for camp. This year the theme for camp is “Famunity”-Family and Unity and they will be walking through the book of Genesis. The idea of Family and the timing with the end of Fiesta in San Antonio inspired our Fiesta Familia!

@Pinterest was a great place to start for decorating ideas and inspiration. Be sure and follow all of our ShowMeDecorate boards on @Pinterest.

Fiesta is all about vibrant colors and whimsical touches!

It’s great when you can beg, borrow, or steal(ok-not really I bought) your decorating ingredients. This year, we were blessed that our church had 20 sombreros and colorful metal Alamo’s that we used on our table tops. I purchased the traditional Fiesta flags and floral garlands. We topped the tables with a variety of colorful table clothes. Then we cut wrapping paper that resembled a serape as our table runners. We made our #Fiesta flowers and were inspired by @AuntPeaches.

To personalize, print out pictures and use as part of centerpiece. This would be great for a #graduation party or a #birthday party. The youth loved seeing themselves and remembering the great time they had at camp last year and it helped personalize it for our church members.

When you are decorating a huge area like a gym on a minimal budget, it’s hard to make an impact. With bright colored Fiesta flags and Floral accordian garland, we were able lower the visual sight a little.

Our Fiesta Familia was lots of fun and it was great seeing the youth serve and participate.

Fiesta Time!

Whether you live in San Antonio enjoying 11 days of parades, festivals and more or you are having a Fiesta themed party for Cinco de Mayo or Graduation Celebrations.

  Show Me Decorating can Show you how with some easy to follow steps for making a fabulous Fiesta wreath.

 

Flowers, flowers, flowers, take center stage for Fiesta! Ribbon, bright, colorful and fun for streamers! Wow, what a statement. Coordinating wreaths for double doors!

Open up the back of the wreath and touch every branch as you shape moving around the back.

  Use a pipe cleaner (chenille stem) on the back as a loop to hang your wreath. Wrap two chenille stems together (for strength) and attach to wire frame, now turn the wreath around and see how the pine branches grow, shaping and fluffing out.

Focal points add interest, we love @Round Top Collection for metal pieces and of course a bow using the www.app.showmedecorating.com

 Fiesta is all about vivid colors and we fell in love with this embroidered ribbon from @Farrisilk. It reminded us of the Fiesta Queen’s dresses. Place your ingredients in a triangle pattern.

  Place flowers in a triangle, add a needle point ivy for filler and interest to the green pine base. Shape flowers and remember every flower has a face so make sure it shows.

We tied a full big bow (1 of the focal points in the 1st triangle) with a print ribbon, solid, mesh, and streamers. Add in half bows as you fill in the wreath and your triangles.

Fiesta is all about the streamers. It’s a great way to make a colorful statement and inexpensive! We tied our streamers (@ReliantRibbon) onto a heavy piece of wire or you could use the flat part of a hanger, then we attached it to our wreath base. You can remove it for easier storage, or take off for a different look.

Fiesta Time in San Antonio!

Reblog from 2011!

It’s Fiesta Time in San Antonio and sisters, Lanisa Cole & Sal Priddy, of our San Antonio team have been busy. You can follow Show Me Decorating’s easy steps to create a festive wreath too!

Sisters Lanisa & Sal

Step One Gather Your Materials

We were between using a grapevine wreath or a green wreath with a magnolia leaf added on. We chose the green wreath because it will be easy to add in our flowers & ribbon.

Which wreath to use?

For a fun festive wreath, choose a selection of flowers. We chose traditional fiesta flowers but had them made out of plastic instead of paper to last longer.

Quick Sidenote : ) If you wanted to do a bright Spring wreath, you could chose Gerber Daisies!

We chose plastic flowers!

Every wreath needs a focal point. We loved this cute Piñata donkey & the ribbon streamers will give the wreath dimension!

The Focal Point & Adding Some Dimension

Bright ribbon adds a real punch to our fiesta wreath! We used the lime green netting as background & the lime green & orange with pom pons for our bows. The skinny ribbon is for streamers!

Bright Colored Ribbon!

Step Two Building Your Wreath!

This is the easiest part of creating a wreath. Once you have chosen your theme (Fiesta) and you have gathered your materials like we did, then you can place everything on the wreath! Here comes the creative part :) Don’t shy away from making your wreath look just like YOU want it. We added in the flowers, the Piñata, and the streamers keeping in mind that we can make different layers with each of these. While we were making the wreath, we decided to make bows to match our theme and place them around the house!

Quick Sidenote : ) Be watching for the Video on how to tie multiple ribboned bows! Also the Show Me Decorating app for iPhone’s & iPad’s includes an entire section on how to tie bows.

Were Done!
