DIY Bow Organizer

Anyone with a little girl knows that hair bows are essential! In every color, shape and size so you can have the perfect one for any outfit at a moments notice!

Mariah's bow collection grew and grew until we finally maxed out our old hair bow organizer. It was time for something new and something that would hold a LOT of bows. I came across a neat tutorial on pinterest (where else!?!) and thought I would give it a try.

Supplies needed:
  • Frame (any size/shape - obviously a bigger frame will hold more bows!)
  • Cardboard the size of the frame
  • Fabric
  • Ribbon
  • Masking tape or hot glue gun
  • Pins
I found all of the supplies around our house and got to work!

Cut cardboard to size of frame and cut fabric with 1 inch allowance on each side.

Secure fabric on back using masking tape (or hot glue, as the tutorial suggests). Cut ribbon with at least 1-2 inch allowance on each side and secure to the back using the same method as you did the fabric. I also used pins about half way across each ribbon in the front to ensure it didn't sag when we filled it with bows.

Place in the frame.

Then, hang up on the wall!

Perfect place for all of Mariah's bows... and plenty of room to grow! :)
