Default not liking these...help!

I'm getting frustrated! What started as a good idea (I thought!) is not coming together very well. What is wrong with these? Other than I kinda threw them on the table to take their pic because I was not happy with them, lol!

Is it the color combo? Was going for a wintery cold look. Yes loops, no loops? Bad spikes? Just go for a boutique bow with a center?

One has ribbon that says Snow Much Fun, doesn't show well because I wasn't placing it quite right on the table. The other is just Christmas trees. One bow center is a blue jingle bell.

What is the deal?! Thanks!

I did consider that but for some reason I didn't follow through...I am bound and determined to come up with something because I do like the blue and the white

(Don't forget, let me know about those peppermint hearts!)

I like the first one, I like 3 or more spikies per side though, maybe cinch the loopies in just a hair so they aren't so out there...

the second one just looks asymetrical to me, it's loopies gone wild...

I love the ribbons and colors too. Go with your first instinct, it's usually right

yeah, that second one aggravated me, lol! It will most likely be banished to the "Bows Gone Bad Box." The Princess Babies love to play in that box...and the cats will try to get in and sleep there, too.

Thanks for your help!

What I would do is try to fill it out some more. Layers your spikes, and get a good sized base bow in there. Are you really wanting the surrounds? If so downsize just to wear the topper bow fits into it. That way it all looks full and there is so empty spots. I am trying to walk away from surrounds, they just don't look right on my girls as singles and my husband ask me not to do the pigtail look w/ the big bows. He dosen't care much for the bow bigger than the head look.
