Fun Girl's Hair Bow Display

I'm linking up to Serenity Now blog's Weekend Bloggy Reading party this week! Hop on over and enjoy some other amazing projects!

Y'all. Ever since these have shown up on Pinterest, I knew that at some point I would end up buying one. Until I found my inner craftiness, and realized I could probably do it myself. And you can, too!


This is what our "hair drawer" looks like. On a good day. And Miss E is three (going on thirty), so I know this little situation will not rectify itself unless I enlist my favorite craft store, some elbow grease, and get to work. Because let's be honest. She's a girly girl, and the bows are only going to get bigger with age...

But you know what? It cost me less than TEN DOLLARS.  I'll let that sink in for you for a moment.

I know. Awesome.

Are we ready? Good!

* Cork board or other frame with some sort of backing attached to frame
* Spray Adhesive
* Fabric
* Ribbon

* Decorative Trim/Cording
* Hot Glue

There's a cork board under there. I promise.
1. After ironing our fabric, Miss E and I headed outside in some fresh air to use the spray adhesive to attach the fabric to the cork board. I really didn't want the fabric sliding around, and this was the perfect solution. It was the first time I had used spray adhesive (remember? I'm in the middle of finding my inner craftiness...), and I have to say, I loved it! It was very forgiving, especially with the fabric. I was able to lift it up and reapply as needed for several minutes.

2. Miss E and I gently smoothed the fabric to ensure no wrinkles were on the front side of the board. I sprayed the cork first, then the actual frame, tucking the fabric in close to the edges.

3. Using the spray adhesive, I sprayed each edge of the frame, gently wrapping the fabric around it. The only tricky part was the corners. I ended up wrapping it like a Christmas present, and it was perfect.

And honestly? I'm pretty sure I could use this for some other project. How cute does it look just standing alone like this? Adorable.

4. We headed inside, and I got to work with my hot glue gun. After measuring the ribbon out and spacing it evenly, I attached the ends of the ribbon to the top and bottom of the board, leaving most of the ribbon free to attach Miss E's bows.

5. I used jute cording to go around the edges. I liked the idea of breaking up the fabric a bit, and adding the jute did just the thing. A little hot glue around the edges to secure, and it was complete!

6. Last, but not least, add the bows! I wish I had caught the look on Miss E's face when she saw our creation complete. Pure joy!

And here's a shot in her room, low enough so she can reach it.

There you have it, friends!! Completely organized and super adorable hair bow display. And so easy!

Until next time,

Mrs. Kuda
