Correct verb to use when saying tie a necktie or bowtie?

I got it that la corbata and el corbatín are necktie and bowtie, respectively. But what is the correct expression to "tie a tie"? Hacer? Atar? Amarrar?

If it makes a difference, I am mostly interested in Iberian Spanish.

tie, necktie = corbata
bow tie (two words) = corbata de lazo, corbata de moño (moño understood in context), corbatín, pajarita

anudarse la corbata
hacer nudo de corbata
atar la corbata
