  1. Insert wooden skewer into back of foam heart. Holding skewer, carefully and completely cover front and sides of foam heart with double-sided tape. Avoid touching adhesive with fingers. Remove protective liners.

Use fingers to press beads to any open areas; fill in open areas with smaller beads from package. Gently tap heart against plate to dislodge loose beads. Remove skewer.

  6. Bend 3-yd. tulle length into four-loop bow with 15" tails. Wire tulle bow to back of lace bow; do not cut wire. Fluff loops as desired.
  7. For pew ties, knot center of remaining tulle length around center of bow.
  8. Bend organdy ribbon into loopy bow slightly larger than foam heart. Wire bow to center of lace bow; do not cut wire.
  9. Trim crystal stem as needed and wire to center of bow as shown. Spot glue to secure. Trim wire.

This heart ribbon pew bow is so very cute and can be used for a inside or outdoor wedding on the pew inside orthe chairs outside to give it an added touch. You can make them white or use a color to coordinate with the wedding colors. So many different options and you can add what you want to put on the bow. Nice tutorial but wish it had step by step pictures.
