DIY bow holder…

Amber’s bow collection is getting tad out of hand and desperately needed more storage. I’d made her one bow holder in the past and it’s so easy, and keeps clips looking pretty I thought I’d do a quick blog tutorial…

First off find a frame you like the look of, I found this frame in a charity shop for just £10. You will also need; ribbons, fabric to cover the backboard, cellotape and a glue gun.

Start by taking the frame apart, discard the glass and the picture as you won’t need them for this make.

Cover the backboard in your chosen fabric. I went with neon pink lace to match the cushions and toy sack made from this already in her room.

Next glue your ribbons to the back of the board, leaving them unglued at the front so that the bows can be pinned on. I went with mismatched ribbons as I was raiding my left over box to keep costs down, but Amber’s room is so eclectic it will work. I spaced the ribbons unevenly as some will hold big bows some small bows.

Put the frame back together and voila…

Amber’s bows mainly come from Little Lovelies by Jo-Anna, but we also have some pretties here from Pom & Minnie and Supercute Hairbows.

The neon pink looks a lot brighter on the cushion and ribbon than on the bow holder but in real-life it all matches perfectly. The ultimate pink princess room!

I had to pack the bows in tighter to get them all on, I’d better be on the hunt for another frame or ban myself from buying any more bows! I don’t think Amber will be short of hair accessories for a while, these gorgeous crowns by Aurora Fawn are to die for and a special mention has to go to Far Far Away for her cute fairy door, this was key in helping bribe Amber to sleep in her own bed!
