Guest Tutorial: Hairbow Holder


Hey, Plucky Momo readers!

My name is Jess, from Craftiness is not Optional, and I'm here to share a fun and easy organization project for you!

Have hair bows and clippys started taking over your life?
Do you find them literally everywhere? Pockets, shoes, fridge?
Then you definitely need one of these!

A pretty, and handy way to corral all those bows.

cardboard insert
fabric (and batting if you wish), cut to overlap cardboard by about an inch
various matching ribbons
and your trusty glue gun

First, make sure you iron your fabric so it's nice and smooth. No one wants to hang up wrinkly fabric. 

Then line the fabric and batting up, flip over, and...

Glue the edges down!

don't get your fingers with the glue gun.

Fold the corners like a present, or just glue them as best you can like I did. Nobody's gonna see the back, unless they take it off the wall just to nitpick about a messy back. Those people should stay away from my house.

Lay your ribbon over the top and cut with an inch or two extra to wrap around the back.

Pin the ribbons in place. Flip over the board.

again, glue gun to the rescue. you know what to do.

Pop it in your frame, and tada! You're done! Fill 'er up with clips and such, and you're in business. Of course, my daughters have so many that you can't see the fabric, so I had to remove some. Yikes.

Thanks, Emilie and readers, for having me! Come by and visit sometime! :)

Oh, I SOOOOOOOOOO need some little girls. My three sons REALLY don't like to wear my 'very few' hair bows. LOL! Very cute!

Love this idea, Jess! I made a hair clip holder for my oldest, but it's just a ribbon hanging from a wooden circle. This is much cuter. I think I need to make her another one:)
