How to make a board hair bow holder.

I was running out of room of my daughter's hair bow holders ( 2 of them, I know. . . I have a hair bow addiction) that I made a while ago, so I decided to make something bigger. I saw some HERE but I pretty much made it my own way ( can't follow instructions very well), here is how I did and hope you will find it useful.

  • Materials need
  • Canvas ( size of your choice)
  • Fabric
  • Hot Glue Gun ( with a burned finger, OUCH)
  • Ribbons

I use my hot glue gun to cover the canvas with your choice of fabric, you can also use staples. It is brown and pink to match baby girl's other hair bow holders.
Then measure you ribbons to go across ( don't forget to burn the end of you ribbons), you can pick how far apart you want them to be from each other. I even add a cute bow on top because I am crazy and want to put a bow on anything. The brown ribbon in the left, I use velcro to keep it together so it can be detachable to put Pony'O and the one in the left I also use velcro and it is for headbands.
And here is the finishing product, really happy about how it turned out and plus I can make even more bows for baby girl!
Let me know if you have any questions. I also will love to see if you make one, so send me a link or pictures.

Happy Crafting Everyone!

What a wonderful project! I wish I had something like that when my girls were still young and I was knee deep in "hair pretties" as they called them.I'm going to pass on your blog post to my friends with young daughters. Have a great day.
