    I made something kinda like this but instead of making it wrap around your neck, i took 4 bread tie things and covered them in duck tape then i attached it to the bow and that way it just clips of and off. great instructable!   :)

    this is cool but i dont really understand the 3rd step. what is the blue stuff? (sorry if i sound harsh i dont mean to) and then how do you get the second picture. cann you just explain the entire 3rd step to me? GREAT IDEA !!:)

    tht lue stuff is the duck tape he used but a tip if you want a more realistic bow tie you can use 1 strip back to back then just trim it to the edges for the bow part i used neon green and pink just 1 strip of each and it came out like this
