Hair Bow Holder 101

Having a little girl is just too much fun…pink stuff, glitter, hair bows!  Now where to put all those hair bows?  How about on this super easy hair bow holder.  Seriously, it is one of the fastest crafts I have ever done.  It takes about ten minutes from start to finish.

Here is what you need:

A canvas any size (also could use a wood frame, old bulletin board, piece of wood…ect)

Batting (optional)

Enough fabric to cover the canvas/ or paint

Ribbon – about 4-5 yards

Staple gun


Lay the fabric right side facing down with the canvas on top of it also right side facing down  (if you want, lay a piece of batting the same  size of the canvas between fabric and board to get a  softer look).  Cut the fabric so it is about two inches wider than your canvas on every side.  Just eye ball it, it doesn’t need to be perfect.

Make sure your fabric is lined up how you want it and now you are ready to staple the fabric down.  Fold the fabric over on to the wood frame on the back of the canvas and staple down.  Do this all the way around.

I also added a layer of tulle/netting over the top for a little shimmer.

Then simply lay down four or five strips of ribbon, evenly spaced apart, going vertically.  Hold them in place and staple on back.

Use a piece of longer ribbon to make it hang-also staple on the back.

Now the back can look pretty crazy, if you don’t care…leave it.  If you do care, lay another piece of matching fabric over the top with the edges folded under and hot glue it in place.  Neat and tidy :)

Tips!  Michael’s has wood boards in the shape of hearts, surf boards, etc. that you can buy to make these or message boards with.  Sometimes you can get a pack of 5 canvases for $15.
