So that leads up to here. Between Pinterest and my own frugal nature, I decided I could make a bow holder cheaper than I could purchase one. This bow holder has 5 vertical ribbons for holding bows and hooks at the bottom for holding handbands and other hair accessories. I'm officially a girl's mom.
Step 1: Buy the following items (preferably on sale)
- wooden frame without glass or backing
- spray paint for the frame
- hot glue supplies if you do not already own
- cute embellishment doodad
- screw in hooks
Step 2: Spray paint frame.
Step 3: Measure out spacing for ribbon (if you are me) and if you are a normal person, just eyeball where to want to mount the ribbon
Step 4: Go to town with glue gun. Helpful hint: Initially I tried to mount the ribbon with my staple gun. This resulted in destroying the front of the frame and several choice words to be muttered.
|Punctured front of frame|
|To the rescue|
|Doodad covering staple punctures|
Step 6: To add hooks, first pre-drill the holes for the hooks using a power drill. Next screw in hooks.
Now to mount the finished product. I am putting this holder on the inside of her closet door. Because doors are hollow, I am using the removable 3M hooks.
I will update post on success of 3M hooks if it is a flop. But overall, one of my more successful projects!!
