Hair bow holder tutorial {kinda}

This morning as I'm getting P #2 ready for school, she wants me to put a pretty bow in her hair. I ask her to go pick it out and bring it out to me. She comes back empty handed:"I can't find the one I want". Well if you know miss P she is THEE most unorganized child EVER! So were searching through Barbies, jewelry boxes, shoes even, and I've had enough. She has 2 "hair boxes" 1 for clippies, and the other for hair bands. But she wont keep them in there. I decided to make her something cute that is at her eye level so she always(hopefully) knows where they are. There are many great tutorials out there for this sort of thing, HERE,HERE and HERE, but I thought I'd share how I made mine.

This is what it will look like After you've made it but before the clip are on. It took about 30 minutes and used whatever I had on hand.
What you need:
Frame in whatever size you feel is necessary
Ribbon, Ribbon and more ribbon
Embellishments if you want
Staple gun
spray paint
sanding paper
Start with a plain wood frame from the dollar store
Spray paint it in the color of your liking. I used Krylon in Watermelon.
(I ♥ this color)
Once dry give it a nice sanding all over
Turn right side down and begin stapling your ribbon on the top.Then pull ribbon tightly and staple at the bottom.
For the hanger I used a thin silky type of ribbon, made a bow on 1 side, left enough to hang with and tied a bow on the other side. I secured the bow with a hot glue gun and added a button over the knot.

Now cut off any excess ribbon, embellish how ever you like, and hang it up!
Don't forget to add your hair pretties
This was a brief one so if you have any questions just ask!!You can also find Tutorials on how to make Hair accessories here:
