Default Re: Adding spikes w/out sewing?

Here's how I do mine (not everyone uses wire, but it's how I learned and I always do it this way):
  1. Make the base bow (usually boutique style for me).
  2. Make the spike layer (either by sewing or using the method I mentioned to keep them attached).
  3. Make a topper bow (usually a twisted boutique).
  4. Put the spikes on top of the base bow and use 24 guage wire to wrap around the middle of the spike layer and base bow; twist to close and cut off long ends.
  5. Put the topper bow on top of the spikes and use 24 guage wire to wrap around the middle of the all the layers; twist to close and cut off long ends.
Does that help?
