How to Make an Adjustable Bow Tie

Introduction: How to Make an Adjustable Bow Tie

This is SSUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUPPPPPPPPPPPPPPPPPPPPPPPPPEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEERRRRRRRRRRRRR easy. I recommend it for beginners with duct tape. you don't need a lot of tape. In this, I will teach you how to make it without an adjustable strap and with one.
I haven't tested how long it lasts, but you can always make another one.
I would recommend using two colors, that match, because it looks prettier. I'm going to use black and yellow.

hope you enjoy making it!

Step 1: Starting to Make the Tie

first you are going to cut two strips of tape of your first color, that measure 4 inches long. now stick em together, sticky side to sticky side. repeat step 1.

Step 2: Finishing the Bow Tie

now take cut a piece of duct tape 2 1/2 inches long of your second color. cut that in half vertically. now hold both of the sheets that you just made together, and carefully pick up one strip of tape that you just picked up and wrap it around the middle horizontally of both of the sheets.


Step 3: Making the Strap

now take your second color and cut two strips of 10 inches. fold each of them into thirds.  now take the other half of that 2 1/2 strip and stick both of the ten inch sheets together like in the picture.

Step 4: Finishing the Strap and EVERYTHING!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

now cut a 3 inch strip of tape of your second color. fold it into thirds. cut another three inch strip. cut it in half vertically. now tape the 20 inch sheet to the back of the bow tie, as shown in the picture. now the other half strip and stick it to the one that you folded in thirds and tape both ends together, but don't fold it over. instead, attach it to the end of the strap.
