Restoring Mashed Bows

Scripture To Live By:

Therefore the Lord himself shall give you a sign; Behold, a virgin shall conceive, and bear a son, and shall call his name Immanuel.
Isaiah 7:14

Behold, a virgin shall be with child, and shall bring forth a son, and they shall call his name Emmanuel, which being interpreted is, God with us.

Matthew 1:23

When I got my Christmas decorations out of storage, I found this little decorative broom and the bow was mashed pretty bad.  I ask my self was it even worth trying to salvage.  I decided it was.  So I thought I would use my curling iron to try to fix the bow.  Yes, I said curling iron.

Heat curling iron. See pictures below to see how I ironed each loop and the ribbon tails of bow.
  As you iron the loops they take their shape once again. 

If you would like to know how to make your own bows go here.

To refresh the broom further I took the colored babies breath and repositioned it on the broom 

Then I added some refreshed flowers and berries.

Good to go for another year.  So if you have some bows that have been crushed or mash, don't just throw them out.  Why not try your curling iron on them?  It works for me.
