Default Re: What length do you make your spikes?

Usually, whatever size center bow I make, I add two inches to the spikes. For example, if I'm making a stacked boutique style bow, and my center bow is 3 inches, my spikes will be 5 inches. Two inches sounds like a lot, but I also have two surrounding loops on these bows and this length allows for the spikes to be seen under the loops.
