I do mine in layers. I attach the three (two form an x and then one straight across) Sew or wire those together. Then I do two more (like the green dot) angel those and wire or tie them seperately. Now I have three "units" to assemble. 1 is the bow 2 the ones placed like the green dot and 3 is the other spikes.
Not sure if that makes sense or not. Then you just start to stack each unit or layer. Add your extras like loopys or whatever you want.
It's easier to hang on to everything this way. Just keep working at it. It will get easier.
