I’m such a weirdo! I wanted a funky bowtie for Bowtie Friday and I have been wanting some super edgy bowties, so I decided to make one!
This bowtie is made out of brown paper bag covered with aluminum tape from the hardware store. Once it was covered and wrapped around the whole paper bag, I dry embossed it using a Tim Holtz texture fade. I pounced some black gesso onto the whole bowtie and then once it was dry, I sanded the raised points back. Finally, I glued it into place and added black fabric and chain around the center!
To add some sturdiness, I used hot glue & Fabritac to glue a really thick gauge wire on the inside. It also allows me to adjust the puffiness of the bow!
Have you ever thought of making wearables out of stuff in your craft room? It’s a lot of fun to wear your own creations. You know that no one will ever have what you’re wearing! Oh, and I need to shave.
