0 Nursery: Where baby girl keeps her bows

I still have distinct memories from growing up of the bow holder that hung on my bathroom wall that my mom used to clip my bows to. I loved having all my bows on display so that I could pick out the matching hair bow to my outfit when I got ready every morning.  I'm pretty sure I had a matching bow for every outfit.  Mom loved bows (and I did too).

Fast forward 20-something years and now baby girl already has a few hair clips, 4 months before she enters the world! So obviously I started searching Pinterest for the best hair bow holder solution. There are a ton out there.  But the ones I liked best were the open frames with ribbon to hold the bows.  There are many out there that have fabric backs, but I thought they distracted from the pretty bows.

This is one of the easiest projects to do!  You only need 3 supply items:

  • Frame - Because I'm impatient and I wanted all the frames in the room to match anyway, mine is from Hobby Lobby, $20 when they have their frames 50% off.  You could easily make this a cheaper project by finding an old frame at the thrift store / yard sale and spray paint white.  Since it's winter and the number of yard sales we've been going to is ZERO, I was too impatient to wait for the perfect frame to pop up.
  • Ribbon
  • Hot Glue Gun. 

Cut your ribbon to side, and hot glue to back.  I hot glued mine in the ridge of the frame, so that it wouldn't be flat against the wall.

I have to admit after I was done, I didn't feel totally confident with the hot glue holding up - mostly because I see myself grabbing bows on and off in a hurry and tugging on the ribbon.  I some teeny tiny nails from a picture hanging kit from Hobby Lobby, and so I nailed them through the ribbon into the frame for extra support.  Probably an unnecessary step?

My mom said Ill never fill a frame this big up with bows. I reminded her she's ALREADY bought baby girl three little hairclips...

Now, the only thing left to do is grow baby girls bow collection!
