Star Wars R2D2 Boutique Bow! Happy May the 4th!

 Star Wars R2D2 Boutique Bow!
Celebrate May the 4th with Star Wars Accessories!
May the 4th be with you!...and look out for Revenge of the 5th!
Here's a great bow to show you're geek chic!

Fill up a silicone mold with hot glue...

(Don't have a mold???  Make your own tutorial here!)
Or pick up the Star Wars Mold here:

 Let it cool completely...

Then pop it out of the mold...Perfectly formed!
Spray paint, then add details with acrylic paint!

Zig zag some ribbon like an accordion...so there are 4 loops...2 on each side.
 Pinch and gather the ribbon in the center.


Pinch and hold in place.
Use some thread and wrap the center about 10 times around.
Then tie it off tight and cut the thread.
 Now it looks kind of smooshed.
Take some time to mold it into a pretty shape!
 Like this!
 Cut the tails with a v-notch.
This will help prevent fraying...
Use a lighter to melt the ends to prevent frays.
 Now, layer and stack.
Add tulle and some more ribbon for the perfect bow!
Hot glue layers together....add your little hot glue R2 on top!
Perfect for Star Wars day on Monday!
