bow gift toppers

Having a casual gathering of friends during the holiday’s is one of my favorite things to do. Last summer I hosted a craft party and it went so well that I’ve been planning another for Christmas. To make life more fun (and productive) for my friends, I decided on a craft that would help knock something off their holiday prep list…

We crafted spunky Christmas bow present toppers. It was a great craft to choose – the project was easy enough to do with a drink in hand and conversation flowing. Plus, they look really pretty and helped everyone feel accomplished for the afternoon. Everyone left with spirits a bit higher and a bag filled with bright festive toppers for all their holiday gifts.

You can make your own DIY big bow gift toppers for a craft gathering this season, or for merrily wrapping presents on your own. Use three bows in varying sizes (I purchased huge bags of bright colored bows). Using scissors, snip of the top of all the connecting ribbons on the top of the bows.

Take off the sticky back on the smallest bow and place it into the center of the next size up, repeat with the largest. The end result is a very huge and bright topper for gifts, that looks way fancier than it’s humble bagged bow beginnings.

I found a few larger bows in the tree trimming section and used the same process to make big, bright wall decor for the party.

Smaller bows and extra’s from the pack were glued onto stir sticks to fancy up our drinks for the afternoon. We all enjoyed a tasting of the new Sauza Sparkling Margaritas. The flavored margaritas are a fun stand in for the more formal holiday party champagne. The margaritas are tasty, bubbly, and (along with my indie Christmas Pandora station) got everyone in a cheerful, crafting mood.
