DIY: Hair bow holder

HG has a lot of pretty hair bows and headbands. I had them all clipped to a hanger in the closet, but this was far from functional and even further from cute. Here's how I created a custom display that hangs right next to the dresser and changing table. Now if only she would grow some hair!! :)

1. Find an old frame. (I had one  at home, but you could also shop for one at a thrift/vintage store.) 

2. Remove any hardware that will interfere with the aesthetics and/or hanging.

3. Paint in desired color scheme (I chose purple, of course!) and attach ribbon in strips to the back of the frame with hot glue. (You could also try a criss-cross ribbon pattern.)

4. Hang in desired area and add bows! Ta-da!!

Perfect for your daughter/niece/granddaughter/friend and easy to do!! 
Other application: a cardholder for birthdays, Christmas, etc. 

Do you have a FUNctional craft to share?...Please do!

  1. Thank you for this post!!! I seriously was just saying last night that I need to get Kami another bow holder and now I suppose I can make one myself! (Or send you all my materials for you to make it... haha just kidding!)
