Default What do you tie your bows with?

I was just wondering what everyone ties their bows with. I have been using bow wire from walmart, but it doesn't come with much for the price and I don't really like the feel of it and such, are their any other options? Thanks!

I use crochet thread. Thick enough to withstand my ferocious pulling but thin enough to work with.

I have been using waxed (unflavored) dental floss and really like it. It kind of holds on to itself so I can make the double knot without the bow coming apart.

Good point: I sew mine with crochet thread.

sewn here. Wire from Walmart is too thick. I used to use Michaels wire. Its thin enough and you get a lot for the cost.

I use elastic thread and love it! I typically buy it from JoAnne's.

I either sew mine with upholstery thread or I tie it with dental floss. I love both.
