SO, i got this adorable idea from my Upline Mandy. You have GOT to check out her blog, she has some of the most amazing stuff to show off, i only wish i was half as talented as she is. So go check out and you will know exactly what i'm talking about.
Now my twins have TONS of bows, and they all sit in a drawer and i got tired of trying to find matching pairs. I was trying to find a way to make something for their bows so i went to Michael's and got a piece of wood to do something similar to what i did to this frame, but it required painting and all kinds of stuff. Mandy shared this idea with me and hubby and i LOVED it so i made one and this is how it came out.

 So here is my twins bow holder. Now mine is no where near as cute as hers, but i was just starting out so i did a simple basic one.
The things you will need:
A frame, and size of your choice.
Hot glue gun
Glue sticks to go in the glue gun
A yard of ribbon of your choice
Assorted colours of paper of your choice
A picture of your cute little ones or maybe make a name instead to go in the center
A ruler
scissors or a personal cutter
a pencil

Now i don't have step by step pictures of how i did this, kind of wish i had done so because i would have loved to share, but as you can see from the picture it's SUPER simple and fun.

The ribbon is just hot glued to the back of the frame once everything is inside and placed how you like. Then you just tie a pretty bow. Be sure to hot glue the top of the ribbon once tied, this needs to be able to hold the heavy frame, Just the bow and nothing more may cause the bow to come undone. I just hot glued the back of the ribbon once tied where no one would see just to make sure it stayed. It basically holds the bow in place as you can see below.

I then cut 3 strips of fabric and glued them to the back of the frame for where the bows will clip onto. You can do as many strips as you like and as long as you like depending on the amount of bows and clips you have. I actually ran out of room so i may need to make another one of these frames for the rest.
Who knew twin girls could have so many hair bows eh?

Now don't forget to go and check out Mandy's blog where i got this cute idea from. This is her idea and i'm taking zero credit for it at all....ok wait i take credit for those cute little twins girls in the picture but thats about it lol.
Stop on by her page, tell her i sent yah and go check out her blog. You never know you might win some free stuff :)
Hope you enjoy.


  1. I'm from our FB group. Such a clever project! Wish this was around when my daughter wore hair bows. I'm your newest follower. Dana

  2. Hi Natalie! Looks awesome! I am from the FB group too--just popping in to see how the blog looks. ;) Love this hair craft too--where do you do your watermarking? Love that font! My following shows up as Tink, but sometimes I show up as Kigz, so I kind of have a split personality like that, lol...but I am always Amie. ;)

  3. Amie, i do my watermarks at but as of the 19th of this month that site is shutting down and is moving to Google+. I believe you can also just do simple watermarks at For my photography business i have a personal watermark but for something simple like this i just write in my name. :)
