Hair Bow Holder

For the past (almost) three years, I've been keeping Abby's (and now Clara's) hair bows in a cute, little box. I've been wanting a better way to store them for a while. The box was functional, but I was getting sick of dumping it out everyday to look for the bow I wanted. Plus, some of the flowers were getting squished funny in the box.
I knew I wanted it to be vertical because I was going to hang it in a fairly narrow spot in the closet. I also new I didn't want to spend any money. I looked up some ideas online. and came up with this.

Most of the tutorials I found online used a picture frame or canvas. I adapted those ideas and covered a nice piece of cardboard with some old fabric. (And I mean, Halloween costume from when I was in elementary school old.) Then I attached some coordinating ribbon. I figured the fabric and ribbon choices weren't crucial, seeing as you can't even see them when all of the bow are on.

I'll probably attach some ribbon to hang from the bottom since it is nearly at capacity already.

Now the cute box just houses headbands. Hurray for efficiency!


  1. Ha ha, I did the same thing with a box and old material. Cheap works great! Yours looks super! :)

  2. Very cute! You could also make another board identical to this one and hang it with some ribbon an inch or so below the other one so you have two whole boards, but still only one hanger.
