My very own EZ Bow Maker!
Well, you have probably seen the EZ Bow Maker in craft stores http://www.ezcraft.com/PDF/ez_bow_maker_instruction.pdf , where it teaches you to make a bow with their bow maker which is just a wood plant and 2 wooden dowels (mine is a hair different). Saw this at BHG http://www.bhg.com/christmas/gift-wrapping/festive-bows/ , which is their homemade creation. So I went to Hobby Lobby and got the supplies to make my own: There are lots of forms to use as a base, this was the cheapest at $1.99 and I already had a wooden dowel, that I cut off two pieces of to make the rods. Then I pushed them into the foam (florist department) to make 'premade holes' and then shot hot glue into the holes, put the dowels back into the holes, let dry...ta-da! And it worked just fine.
