Default Help assembling a stacked bow

I am having a hard time getting my stacked bows to feel secure to the clip. I glue the base bow to the clip, then I glue each layer on. Once they are all glued together I glue the center ribbon on. My bows still feel wobbly and not secure. Can you help please!

I don't know much about glueing them because I sew mine. When I make the bows and spikes, I sew them. Then, I sew all the pieces together - top bow to loops/spikes then that to the base bow. I sew through the whole bow about 3 times and I also wrap the thread around the center several times, too! Then, I attach the center and glue to the clip.

I assemble my whole bow and then put it on the clip. I secure it to the clip by wrapping the center knot around the whole thing and gluing it to the inside of the clip.
