You have a couple of options, you can make a figure 8 out of marabou or take a couple of marabou puffs and place the marabou on top of your spikes layer.

Good luck!

If you're using a strand tape where you're going to cut it prevents a mess.....and I always hot glue the ends of my marabou so that they don't come apart while on the bow I usually just make puffs to put on...hth

Default Re: bows with marabou

I have done a couple of orders that requested marabou be in the bows or flowers. I just bought the marabou at HL, but the desired length, glued the ends together placed on the layer I wanted it on and stiched a couple of times through the rope part of the marabou to hold it in place and then put the rest of te bow on top of the marabou. I have heard of people gluing the marabou down, but I personally didnt like all the mess with doing it that way. Lol. I think the marabou puffs would be cheaper and easier if you were planning on doing a bunch. I was in a rush for an order so just bought my marabou at HL and havent used it since that one order. lol.

This is how I do it also. I do buy my marabou at HL though and cut it and make my own puffs.....

I would make the puff by curling in the marabou and then glue the end piece down but the figure 8 idea is great.
