…to bring you other crafting!
My sister’s baby shower was this weekend, and while I already joined in on getting her her baby’s bedding, I couldn’t very well go to the party empty-handed!
And what does every new little girl need but hairbows and a place to store them?? And so, my hairbow frame is born:
I had actually made a hairbow holder for myself over a year ago. I did it in the french memo board style after I saw one at a hair salon. I thought it was a great idea, and so much more attractive than my putting them all over my daughter’s lampshade (which was kind of cute, but, you know…)!
So I recently ran across a tutorial along the same lines, but using a picture frame and straight ribbon lines. (I’d give a link but I can’t find it. I didn’t save it since it was so simple.) And doesn’t this look just so much more professional?!
SO going to redo my own in this same style. Just need to get another coupon so I can get a frame cheap again!
My quick and dirty how to (with no pictures — I did it in less than an hour the night before the baby shower):
1. Picture frame. Mine had a 12″x16″ opening and was bought at Joann’s, with a 50% off coupon, for $10.
2. Ribbon. Bought one spool, again at Joann’s, with a 40% off coupon for $1.50.
3. Fat Quarter (was in my stash).
4. Fat quarter sized piece of batting.
5. Tape. Lots of tape.
A. Wrap the batting and fabric around the glass inside the picture frame, taping it onto the back of the glass.
B. Measure and place 5 pieces of ribbon on top of the fabric, taping them secure on back of the glass again.
C. Place glass with attached batting, fabric and ribbons into frame and put the back of the picture frame on as normal.
D. Hang and enjoy!
