DIY Personalized Bow Holder

After having two boys I have really enjoyed having a girl around. It didn’t take long to realize that they are very different and girls require a lot more accessories. We have acquired so many headbands and hair clippies… and if we don’t have an accessory to match her outfits I am guilty of whipping one up! Then there is the dilemma of keeping them organized! DIY Hair Bow Holder Tutorial Back in 2007 when I first started selling online I used to make similar bow holders so I instantly knew we needed one for Delilah’s hair clips. They are fairly easy to make and cost about $8-$10. You will need:

  • Wooden plaque
  • Acrylic paint
  • Scrapbook paper
  • Mod Podge
  • Paintbrush
  • Ribbon
  • Copy Machine (or printer with copier)
  • Sand paper
  • Staple gun
  • Shabby Flowers (optional)
  • Vinyl for name (optional)

To make my bow holder I first wanted to create a template so that I could cut my scrapbook paper to be the correct shape. Since I picked a plaque with a unique design (not just a circle or square) I put it on the copy machine and cut it out. Then I painted my plaque with acrylic paint.

Once the mod podge dried I took a small piece of sand paper and gently sanded the edges until the paper fell off. DIY Hair Bow Holder Tutorial To attach the ribbons for the bows I flipped over the plaque and used my staple gun to attach two ribbons. I also used a claw hook so that I could hang it, but if you don’t have one then you can just loop a small piece of ribbon and staple it on (just make sure it is centered!).

    1. I have seen where they make them out of empty oatmeal canisters – but I am trying to think of something that can hang on the wall next to this bow holder. 🙂

    2. Lowes has PVC pipe for plumbing that is about 4" in diameter…it works great for headband holders! I attach a long ribbon on each side and then hand it up on the wall (need all the counter space I have)
