Pew Bow Tutorial
Once finished with the tulle, flowers are added to the center of the bow. If you are planning on adding fresh flowers, I suggest you wait until the day of the wedding. Decos are small and the water pulled from them by the fresh flowers would need to be replenished often. Dribble water on the Oasis foam carefully, so not to soil the bow.
Silk flowers, however, can be added whenever you wish. One note: do not store your finished bows in any type of container or bag. Tulle is easily crushed and very difficult to uncrease. Instead, hang your finished bows from hangers and leave out open.
Start by dipping the silk flower stem into white glue. If you are using fresh, use
Floralock Stem Adhesive
after all the flowers have been inserted into the foam. Do not overdo, or you may have glue dripping down on your tulle.
Insert flowers into the foam, being carefully not to get any of the white glue on the bow.
I suggest you insert the flowers at different depths. This will give your bow a more dimensional look.
I like adding some feathery fern or filler (such as Babies Breath) for more added interest.
The bow is just about finished except for the trimming of the tulle. Once you have made one of these, you'll find the others are quicker to do.
