Default Marabou how to?

My typical bow is like the attached.

My question is instead of using tulle, how do I integrate marabou feathers between the main bow/loops and the layer of spikes. I want them to kind of stick out in a thin even, layer where you can still see the layer of spikes. I have been getting 15 gram marabou from dreamangels.net. Maybe I'm making harder than it needs to be but I don't want it to be too fat in the middle.

Thanks!

I've used felt before or you can sandwich the marabou between a base bow and the rest of the bow layers.

I hot glue the marabou into a circular shape and hot glue it down before I add my tbb and surrounds. Your bow is gorgeous by the way! I would love to know how you add the tulle. When I tried experimenting with it, it just didn't look right.

To add tulle, I cut a 10x5 piece of tulle and fold it in an accordian type manner, pinch in the middle and tie. That's pretty much it.

If you want the spikes to be visible you need to make bows bigger. That is why I only add marabou or feathers to my OTT bows. I tried with 4.5 and 5 inches bow and they don't look that well. Works perfect when the bows are 5.5 inches or bigger. You just need to glue the marabou piece under the twisted bow.

I used hot glue. I prefer the ones that come with a fetl circle but if you don't have those just put a circle of glue on the ribbon. Just assemble the way you do with any other bow.
