Life’s Crafting A Gift that Will Keep them Using Their Heads!

 

Bow Storage Wall Hanging

 

I have two little girls, so in my house, so you can only imagine that I am over run with bows  – LOTS OF BOWS!  I had a dear friend give me one of my most prized possessions in the hair department when it comes to my girls.  It was a bow holder made out of a picture frame.  She made it at a “Girl’s Night Out” crafting event and gave it to me as a gift. 

I figured out how to make it myself and I now too have been making them for girlfriends as gifts.  They are a great birthday gift for the toddler that has everything in the scope of toys and clothes or for a babysitter.  Just add a few bows and maybe even a homemade tutu or one that you can pick up at Costco and you have a gift fit for any princess.

The whole thing costs about $7 dollars to make if you do it right.  I get the picture frame at Michael’s and use the 40% coupon you can find online each week.  I head to a fabric store and pick out  cute scrap pieces they sale (which are the perfect size for this project.)  As for the ribbon I am always on the look out for the $1 spools and I just stock up and I coordinate my scrap material finds to the ribbon I have on hand.

Supplies Needed:

  • Scissors
  • Hot Glue Gun
  • Assorted Ribbon – You will want to have 5 rows.
  • Material size 12×12
  • Picture Frame that can hold a matted 8×10 picture

 

Instructions:

First you place the glass on the material face down and wrap the material around the glass securing it as you would with tape with hot glue.

Then cut and arrange ribbon using a layering effect  on at least one of the rows.

Wrap and secure the ribbon around the now covered glass  with hot glue. Make sure it is  moderately tight where there  is enough give to be able to clip a bow to it.

Place the finish insert back into the frame.

 

Add a hanging bow to the back clasp

Completion!

 

The whole project took about 20-30 minutes to do depending on how settled I was on the ribbon choices.
