I made this bow holder for a neighbor of mine who just had her second baby, and first daughter, Hannah. I knew she already had lots of clothes/toys/books, so I decided to make her something she could use in the years to come. My sister made one of these for my daughter several years ago, and it still hangs in her bathroom and we still love it. Every little girl needs a bow holder!
This is super simple and very inexpensive to make. You will need a picture frame, some ribbon, a scrap piece of fabric, a small wooden letter (I painted mine pink with craft paint), some hot glue, and of course, bows(!). I found all of my supplies at Hobby Lobby, including the frame which was 50% off. I chose this frame because it was already painted and it already had the hangers on the back.
You will first need to take off the back of the frame and wrap your scrap fabric around the glass. I did not even glue the back of mine. The burlap was thick enough that it was tight when I put it back in. Insert the back and trim up your fabric.
Next, you are ready to adhere your wooden letter on the front of the fabric. I hot glued the letter and eyeballed the center.
Lastly, you will need to hot glue two pieces of ribbon (equal length) to the back of the frame.
Add your bows and you are done! Once you have your supplies, this can go very quickly. I love a handmade gift, don’t you?! I love the monogram and the storage solution too!
Cost breakdown: “H” ($1), Frame ($7), Burlap (already had), Ribbon ($2), Craft paint (already had). I also purchased a few bows to get her started. The possibilities are endless when it comes to color combinations you could choose. In case you missed it, click here to find out how we store our headbands!
