For those of you with daughters you know that the hair bow/accessory situation can get out oh hand. Ours were consuming a drawer and becoming tangled and pretty much unmanageable. Here is an attractive and organized solution that will not only display these pretty bows but can teach your daughter some gross motor skills as well!

Materials

  • 1 x wooden picture frame, any size, no back or glass needed (You can find these at Hobby Lobby or Michaels. I used a 9 x 12)
  • various ribbons (Get creative with color, size and texture. This would also be a good use of scraps!)
  • Staple gun
  • Ruler
  • Pencil

Instructions

1. Measure and cut the ribbons so they are about 1-2 inches longer than the frame.

2. Turn the frame over so the front is facing away and place on a sturdy surface.

3. With the ruler, measure every 1-2 inches and mark the top and bottom of the frame where the ribbons will be attached. My frame had a nice lip to keep them tight and away from the wall when it is hung. These will be your guides for the next step.

3. With the staple gun, staple the ends of each ribbon to the back of the frame, using your marks as a guide. Try and keep the ribbon as tight as possible. They will get stretched out with use.

4. Trim the ends of the ribbons.

5. Hang on wall. I stapled a 2.5 inch ribbon as a hanger and used a stylish hook on the wall.
