I can make bows. I can make clips. I can make hair bow holders. What I cannot do is make my darling daughter wear bows or clips.We have begun to call her Donald Trump (in the nicest way possible). Can't you just see the resemblance in the hair? Is it any wonder that her modeling agency had to "let her go"? Well, actually when she became "unemployed" at 18 months it was because of her lack of hair, rather than her current abundance of Donald Trump / mullet-ness.
So as I return from that digression, here is an easy tutorial on how to make your own hair bow holder. Hopefully it will be useful for more than a wall decoration that is currently collecting dust.
Pre-stretched canvas in any size (mine is 16 x 20)
Fabric (a bit bigger than the canvas)
Ribbon (5 yards should be more than plenty)
Cut a few inches bigger on all four sides.
Keep stapling every few inches, alternating sides so the fabric stays straight and even. Tuck in your corners, cutting away any extra fabric. Martha would probably faint if she saw my corners, but I am a human, not a robot. Besides, the back will be against the wall. Who would ever know?
Lay your ribbon on top of the canvas to figure out how many rows you want to make. Cut each piece a few inches bigger on the top and the bottom.
Flip canvas over and staple ribbons to the back, keeping your spacing even. Repeat this with the bottom edge.
Hooray! Your bows can now be organized and accessible and your new holder makes a great room decoration.
Now, does anyone have any tips to force Donald Trump into wearing some hair pretties? I never put anything in her hair (actually, bald head) when she was younger so I think that I missed the opportunity of girly hair training.
