So as most of you know I went bow crazy this summer making more bows for Emma Claire than she will probably ever need. :-) But you know what they say...
HA! Totally kidding...sort of ;-)
Anyways....after creating quite the bow collection for my little munchkin I knew I needed a way to store them. First I looked around to buy one and then I decided that I could just MAKE one, I did make the bows after all ;-) I decided that I wanted something that would be cute and practical, so I decided to re-purpose an old frame. Luckily my mom had the perfect one!
This frame was the perfect size!
After taking out the picture I set the frame up to spray paint! I used old spray paint lids to prop up the frame, this worked perfectly!
Once the frame was dry I laid it out on my parents kitchen table and set up the ribbon! I played around with a lot of different "designs" before I settled on this one. Then my mom helped me with the staple gun and we attached the ribbon. *Tip* Make sure to pull the ribbon TIGHT when you staple it! I've had to re-staple some after adding the bows.
And here's the finished product! I LOVE it! :-) Side note...do you not LOVE the chair this is sitting on?! My mom got them (it's part of a pair) at a garage sale...needless to say I had major garage sale envy of this find!
All in all this was a SUPER simple project! I think I spent around $10 total with spray paint and ribbon. Much better than the $50 or $60 I was looking at online!
Also, I've decided on a way to store all of her bow-bands and headbands!!! Andrea, over at My Chihuahua Bites, said that she had seen people use an oatmeal container covered in scrapbook paper to store bands! GENIUS! Then I found a picture of this wonderful idea on Pinterest...of course :-)
On another note I've chosen the GIVEAWAY item!!! Be looking for that post soon, trust me...it's a good one!!! I'm so excited about it!
