Tutorial: Dollar Store Hair Bow Holder

OK, here is the promised tutorial for the hair clip holder I showed you yesterday. No more drawers full of disorganized hair bows. No more searching for the favorite clip that has been misplaced. Now not only will your bows be organized, but you will have a cute wall display too. Is that not perfect?!?

Here it is again in case you missed it:

Dollar Store Hair Bow Holder Tutorial

I started with this wall hook that I bought at the dollar store. Yep, that’s right, it was $1.

I sprayed it with a coat of spray paint primer just to be sure. That would be the first step that I forgot to photograph. Sorry.

After the primer was dry, I sprayed it with a couple light coats of black spray paint. Pay attention to the sides and the hook; the front will be covered with paper.

It had a sticky back, but I was afraid it would damage the wall, so I opted for another hanging method. I used one of these fabric hangers. Also from the dollar store. They come in a pack.

I didn’t need the hook part, so I cut it off. That was actually the hardest part about this whole process. Then I pulled of the tape on the back of the hanger, and the back of the wall hook, and pressed the sticky sides together.

Next I cut a piece of ribbon about a yard long. I used grosgrain, but you can use any kind you like. I heat sealed the ends with a candle, then hot glued the top to the back of the wall hook.

From here on out, you can decorate the front however you want. I cut a piece of scrapbook paper and mod podged it to the front. Then I used black ink to distress the edges. After that I cut a vinyl monogram and stuck it on the front. You could also use a sticker, a wooden letter, a foam shape, or a stencil. I think a fabric flower would even be cute.

After you are all done, just hang it up and clip the bows to the ribbon. I plan on hanging headbands from the hook.
Have fun organizing your bows!!!
