Question How To Secure A Stacked Bow?

OK, I am almost finished with my first stacked bow, and I am not sure what the best way to secure all the centers together? Any suggestions? I have wire, elstic string and the embroidery thread. I am very excited about my first bow, and I want it to come out right. Would love some help. THANKS

I use floral wire. I use to use elastic, but floral wire is what I use now.

I glue each layer together & then use mt center knot or center ribbon wrapped around from front to back & secure it to my clip.

I sew mine together, then add the center knot (or plain ribbon strip). I sew the center piece to the back. I glue (E6000) a partially lined alligator clip or lined barrette, then sew it to the actual bow with matching thread. I probably go over board with the sewing, but I rather be very thorough and not take a chance of anything coming apart.

I use a small dot of hot glue between all layers then tie them using crochet thread. Then I glue the bow to the clip and wrap everything with my my center knot ribbon, attaching to my clip.
