Simple and elegant! I’m a little concerned over the open ends – probably not safe for young ones or snaggy clothing. Perhaps the bow tie ends can be twisted up, or use a small sparkly bead?

This is awesome! I have an arts and craft blog where I do a lot of DIY things, but I haven’t seen anything like this before! Thanks for the creative suggestion!
