Default Re: Bows w/ Marabou?? Help!

i cut the size i need/want. then i make a circle with it, using a dab of hot glue on the end and attach to the two ends together. once it cools i bring the sides together. I make one side the 2 ends that were joined, basically forming a l instead of an o and then I attach in the center of my base bow or spikes. I put a dab of hot glue to secure it but then use embroidery thread and double knot it for extra security. then put my top bow center or whatever you want to use.

hope this helps.
