As a little girl with A LOT of hair Chelsea has a daily need for a hair bow or clip. I originally had them housed in a cute little vintage china sugar bowl but there are now too many of them and it was getting hard to see the selection in the bowl. I decided to make a bow holder. I was able to put this together in less than an hour with scraps and bits and bobs I already had on hand. The best kind of project!
I took a small unfinished wood piece (found at Michael's or any craft type store) and glued on some vintage wallpaper. I added a satin flower and some vintage velvet leaves I had purchased a while back at Tinsel Trading. I had quite a bit of the gray gross grain ribbon - interestingly enough I took it from work! An award we order on a yearly basis comes tied up with this ribbon but we do not give the ribbon to the awardee - just the storage box so into my ribbon stash it went and I'm quite glad that it did. I cut a small piece and glued a loop on the back of the wood and then cut three lengths and glued each on the bottom of the wood and viola! Instant bow holder.
Most of these clips came from McClippies, a really great Etsy shop run by two sisters. I also adore this Etsy shop for hair clips. Chelsea will be sporting her chocolate bunny clip on Easter!
McClippies clips have great attention to detail and they each include a non slip surface perfect for soft baby hair.
Here is the full length view of the bow holder. I might have to make another one soon! I don't like to have a lot of visual clutter around so this actually hangs inside her closet where I can easily pluck the daily hair bow to match each outfit.
