Bow Holder Tutorial

Sunday, March 4, 2012

I kept seeing these all over the place and really wanted to make one for my little girl because I want her to have LOTS of bows! But instead of buying one I just decided to make one and here is how I did mine! :)

What you will need:
Picture frame
Cotton strip
Hot Glue

First measure out your cotton so that it is slightly bigger than the glass from your frame.

Then, doing small sections at a time, hot glue the cotton to the glass. 
This is will help so that the cotton and/or fabric won't slip or move around once it is in the frame.

Then cut off the extras on the side.

So that it looks like this.

Then do the same thing with your fabric! So that they are both glued to the glass.

Then measure the glass to see how long your ribbon needs to be cut.

Cut your ribbon about 2 inches longer than the glass so that you have about an inch hanging over each end. Then wrap your ribbon around the glass, gluing both sides to the glass. 

Then continue to do so with the rest of your ribbons. 
I put mine 2 inches apart.

Then put it in your frame and you are done! And ready to start putting your bow on!

  1. Love this idea! Where did you find the fabric? It matches our baby's nursery exactly with the colors and the design.

  2. I want to make my little girl some bow holders too. Where is a good place to find really cute fabric in store or online?
