Keep Those Bows Straight!


I've been drowning in bows for the past few weeks!  I made over 400 bows and clips to put in a consignment sale this weekend.  Of course, I had to save a few for Ellie!  And by a few, I mean a few of each color.  Needless to say, I had a little mountain of bows and nowhere to store them.  Or nowhere cute and organized to store them.  Now, you know that just wouldn't do!

I started collecting frames a while ago, my ideas for their use evolving over time.  I finally had a light bulb moment and got down to business.  I took my favorite frame (remember seeing it here?) and made it pretty and functional.  I haven't had a chance to hang it up yet, but what you see here is more than 50 bows, all in one place with room to spare (but not much)!



No need for a hair bow organizer?  Come back next week for a more versatile version!

Hi Jessica! Cute way to keep things organized. I'd need a giant frame to get organized around here. :/ Wow! You sure got a lot of comments for the OWOH giveaway. Wishing you a wonderful day. Tammy

Oh I love this. I made something similar once for earrings, but I never thought of using it for bows. There are really so many things you could put on there. I'm thinking I could make one an use it like a bulletin board and clip on inspirational photos.
Thanks for sharing

Love this! I have a frame and a little girl with lots of bows - I've been trying to figure out how to make a bow holder out of the frame - now I know! thanks :)

So, so cute. I love the elaborate painted frame. Might have to copy that idea!

great work! I keep my daughters hairbows in one of those hanging jewelry organisers and have a hard time getting them out. Love this idea.

check out the giveaways on my blog tees and hair accessories for little kids.

Chicken Wire? Genius. I keep my daughters bows in a basket, she isn't as interested playing with them when they are out of sight, but when she gets over that I want to make this!

I absolutely love this idea! I even have a frame that has been sitting around with no purpose until now and will totally work for this project. LOVE.

So cute!! Love the teal color too. My daughter prefers to keep her bows hidden all over the house but maybe we'll try this so we are more organized. Cute bows too!
