I recently made Harper a new Bow Holder and want to show you how you can make one too!
When Harper was still in my tummy, I made her a bow holder and I thought “Oh this will hold ALL of her bows forever” … YEA RIGHT….) Before she even had enough hair to even wear a bow it looked like this:
So, I went to the craft store and picked up a wooden plaque and some wooden letters for a few bucks total:
Then I got out my two favorite Krylon “pinks” and…
got to sprayin:
After a few coats and letting the paint dry REALLY well, I had this:
It was cute, but a little plain for my taste, so I got out my trusty No. 2 pencil and dipped the eraser in my favorite lime green acrylic paint to create polka dots on the letters:
While the polka dots were drying, I plugged in my hot glue gun. Once all the paint was completely dry, I glued the letters straight onto the plaque:
And ended up with this:
I got two strips of ribbon and hot glued that to the back of the plaque to hang Harper’s bows on (you can decide the length depending on where you want to hang it and how many bows your princess has… I should have made this one ten feet long at the rate Harper is collecting bows…):
I took another strip of the ribbon and created a bow to hang the hair bow holder on.
Then I hot glued the bow to another strip of ribbon and glued the ends of the second strip to the back of the top of the plaque:
And then I hung it on Harper’s wall right next to her changing table:
I hung the bows she wears now on her new bow holder and sadly, today it is ALMOST full… I think I have a problem… I am a bow hoarder…
Now every time I change Harper’s diapers she points to the bows and says “prebby!” Yep. They are her “prebby’s” and that works for me!
