hairbow holder

I love making hair accessories for my girls. Unfortunately, this love for hair bows and clips has made quite a mess in the bathroom. I am finding the clips and bows everywhere. I finally broke down and made a hairbow holder. You may have seen these on other blogs. They are quite popular, but that's because they are so necessary. This little holder keeps them in one place. And it looks cute in the bathroom!



This was super easy to make. I just purchased a frame I liked and adhered coordinating cardstock to the glass. I then cut three pieces of matching ribbon and with a hot glue gun attached it to the back of the glass.



Now, all I have to do is slip the bows onto the ribbons for an adorable and functional piece.

Love this idea - I was just wondering what I was going to do with all the hair clips we've accumulated!

How cute! I have all my daughter's hairbows hanging from a cloth ribbon in my closet. She's expecting our first grandbaby in June. If it's a girl I'll have to drag out all those bows and make this pretty display.

Awesome! And perfect timing . . . I was thinking about making one of these but not sure how to start. Do you have a tutorial on how to make the bows, too?

I saw something like this on another blog and decided it was a MUST for my little one and my soon tobe great niece. However, I was under the impression you put the ribbon around covered mat board, cardboard, whatever board. Now, I'm wondering which would be best. Hmmm, decisions, decsions. Love the bows BTW :)

Sounds like we need to do a hairbow tutorial in the future :) If you all want, I would be happy to put one together.

I went out searching for a frame but couldn't find one that I like...would you mind telling me where you bought yours? Thanks

April said...

Do you have an idea for bowbands? Thanks!

Christina said...

Such a great idea!!
I am going to attempt this one,
Thanks for sharing!

Little Birdie Secrets said...

I found this frame at Aaron Brothers.

Wendy said...

I too would love a bow tutorial. I found this one http://www.girlythingsbows.com/
but mine always turn out flat and not fluffy like the boutique bows.

Little Birdie Secrets said...

Hi April, is a bow band a bow that is attached to a soft headband?

Sarah said...

I love this!!! I have seen hairbow holders before and never liked them....this one is perfect. Thanks for sharing! :-)

Christine said...

I am absolutely making this. My daughter's bows are shoved in a little drawer thing and getting all smooshed. This is perfect! Thank you!

Atticelf said...

Another great idea! Borrowing it...

Amanda Pedro said...

awesome idea! I'm taking it! i have a craft show next week and it is perfect for displaying my hair clips. THANKS!! now off to find that old frame.

April said...

Yes a bow band is a bow attached to a soft circle headband but I have yet to figure out how to organize them. Since I make bows and clips to sell you can imagine the stock we have in my house! :o)

BoufMom9 said...

LOVE this! My daughter has HUNDREDS of bows! I might get a poster frame and do this with that for all of her hair "goodies" :)

Nicole Thomas said...

What a great idea! I've been looking for a simple and effective way of holding the clips and ties together neatly. Now I have found it! Thanks!

Amanda said...

Thanks for this amazing tutorial! I was able to make one for a birthday party I had coming up!

Alisha said...

Yes please add a tutorial for the hair bows as well. I love your stuff and i am not remotely crafty but can accomplish many of your ideas. My family loves them!
