Default How do you use marabou?

I know you use it in hairbows, but how do you get it? What does it come in and whats the best way to attach it? If someone could help me with this that would be great. Thanks in Advance.

When I wanted to start using marabou, I searched for it here and I found lots of great tips. Methods for attaching it under bows, places to purchase it, etc. Its a great add-on for those over-the-top bows!

Default Re: How do you use marabou?

I have used the individual marabou feathers in my bows as the puffs are impossible to get locally for some reason and i just havent got around to finding a good online supply. I just stick the feathers round in a circle type shape with hot glue layering on the feathers until im satisfied with how it looks thickness wise etc. then pop the bow on top, i do usually have the spikes under the marabou tho. hth

I get the boas (6 foot) at HL when they go on sale and make my own puffs be forming them into a circle and hot gluing the ends.

Default Re: How do you use marabou?

When getting ready to attach them, I look at the straight boa, and without cutting anything, fold it and make a circle to determine what size I want, Then lay it out flat on the table again..After deciding where you going to cut the marabou, Take some scotch tape and wrap it completely around the area you are going to cut..Make sure it's wrapped tightly and secured it self...I then do the same thing with the other end (even if it's the end rope part on the boa)..So you will have 2 small sections of tape on the boa..This way, you can cut it and IT WON'T BE SNOWING FEATHERS FOR HOURS ON END! No mess, no leftovers, just a clean cut..And when you go to make a puff, wrap the marabou in a circle, and be sure that the end of the tape meets and slightly overlaps the other one. Glue both ends to tape together and there you have it! A mess free, perkier, and secure trick that saved me from losing my mind with feathers!
