This hair bow organizer is a pretty way to keep little girl’s hair bows neatly organized. It makes a great gift, too!
I found the wooden bow at Goodwill for just $1, but I have seen similar items in the unfinished wood section at most craft stores. The secret to getting a glittery finish without glitter shedding everywhere is to use glitter paint! You get all the sparkle and shine of glitter without the mess.
- Wood Bow, $1
- Glitter Paint, on hand
- Ribbon, on hand
- Tulle, on hand or $1
Total $1 and up
Step one: Paint the bow with a base color, then begin painting layers of glitter paint. I used DecoArt’s glitter paint, but you can make your own if you prefer. The best way to get an even, glittery finish is to apply several light layers of paint, letting each layer dry before applying the next one.
Step two: Cut a piece of ribbon to the desired length. Trim the ends and seal them by heat setting them or with fabric glue, like I did. Glue the ribbon to the back of the bow.
Step three: Cut strips of tulle and glue them to the back of the bow. I added 15 ribbons of tulle to create a full tutu-like effect.
I nailed a sawtooth hanger to the back to make the bow hanger easy for my gift recipient to hang. I’ll be giving this bow organizer as part of a baby shower gift. It will decorate the package like a bow, but also doubles as part of the gift! All the mom-to-be has to do is clip her little one’s hair bows to the ribbon. If you wanted to personalize this gift even more, you could add the little girl’s name to the ribbon. Have fun crafting and creating!
