We’re continuing our series of great how-to craft tutorials with SITStah Mandy from The Fabulous Baby Striblings today. On Monday, she showed you how to make a no-sew growth chart, and today, an adorable hair bow holder for all of your daughter’s hair accessories!

Here is how you make a DIY hair bow holder. I took the basics of DIY tutorials I found on Google, and adapted them a bit. I wanted it to coordinate well with my children’s nursery and wanted it to look simple and, of course, a little French.

Supplies you’ll need

  • Glue Gun
  • Ribbon ($1.99)
  • Scrapbook paper ($.59 each)
  • Frame from Goodwill ($2.49)
  • Wood Letter ($1.49)

  • Flower poof on a stick ($2.99)

Make the frame and backing

I used a coat of paint to fix the the God-awful fugly frame from Goodwill.

I took the clear plastic piece out of the frame and laid it down on the paper. (The pages look misaligned because I lined up the fleur-de-lis to be even).

Other tutorials I saw used fabric and staple gunned the fabric to the back. I chose to use paper and tape. I taped the pages down really carefully to the back of the plastic piece, making sure it was really secure.

I then painted the frame and the wood letter J. I painted the frame the same color as the bottom half wall in my children’s nursery. I then spray painted the letter J chocolate.

Preparing the ribbon strips

Next I cut the ribbon into strips and placed them about 2.5 inches apart. I glue gunned them together on the back, then also glue gunned them to the plastic, so they wouldn’t move around on me.

Add the final touches

I took the wooden stick off the poof flower and glue gunned it to the upper corner. Then I glue gunned the letter down onto the paper. Then put it all in the frame.

You can hang this ribbon holder on the wall, or from a door with a ribbon. This project took less than 2 hours, and was SUPER simple. And I love it way better than the ones I have seen online for sale!
