    bowties are cool. so are fezzes(spelling?)

    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!   :)

    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
