An Easy Bow Holder

 I have two daughters.  Both have long hair and many "bow bows" for their hair.  My friend, Lesli made my oldest daughter, GraciAnn a bow holder for her second birthday.  I was inspired by hers, to make my younger daughter, Mariella one.  I bought a spool of ribbon, a precut wood oval, 2 precut flowers, and a wooden initial from JoAnns. I already had the paint, that matches her room colors, from previous projects in her room.  I painted the flowers and oval white and  I painted the "M" the same green color as her walls. When the oval was dry, I used a round sponge brush to make polka dots on the oval and pink dots in the center of each flower.  I used wood glue to glue the M to the oval.  I used a staple gun to staple the ribbon to the back of the oval.  I hot glued the flowers to the bottom of the ribbon.  Something needs to be at the bottom of the ribbon to keep the bows from slipping off.  These flowers work perfectly. I was done!  This took maybe thirty minutes, of hands on time to complete.  It was inexpensive (with coupons, around $10) and it will be used for years!

 
I've made a few bow holders as gifts too!  They are so easy to personalize and so convenient to have! Here's Mariella's filled with bows!
