So, I've seen a lot of variations on the hairbow holder out there in blogland. I thought I'd try one myself. The wood plaque was 1.97 at Wal-Mart, the butterfly 47 cents, the ribbon 2.97, and the paint 67 cents. All I did was give the little board 2 or 3 coats of apple green, hot glue the butterfly and the ribbon on .....and whala, a cute bow holder. I obviously didn't make my ribbon strands long enough because I have a whole gallon size ziploc full of more bows. I have 2 girls, you can never have too may bows! Hey, it's a good excuse to make another one.
I like it, but somethings missing...I'm not sure what. My next one will be way cuter, maybe an initial instead of a board. What do ya'll think?
p.s. With the leftover ribbon I tied bows around the lampshades on my buffet...precious! And around two red candles. I HEART ribbon. Like the snowman obsession, I think I have an unhealthy attachment to ribbon. I have bags, yes bags, of it. It's not just for hairbows. I use it to wrap presents, wrap candles, wrap lampshades, as a runner on a tablecloth, on bulletin boards, on curtains...the list could go on and on. I think all of my quirks are being made very apparent on this blog. It's quite liberating just givin' it all up and laying it out on the table for everyone to see! Love it or leave it...that's me!
