Remove the tag. Open the bandana fully and fold in half forming a triangle shape. Begin rolling it downward about 1.5inches at a time from the widest end. Continue folding it down in 1.5inch increments until you reach the point.

Once you have the bow secured with a zip tie, it’s time to add that bling! You know I love a little bling. Cut a piece of the pretty Dollar Tree rhinestone ribbon and secure it to the center of the bow with a little hot glue. This serves to cover the zip tie.
