Framed Bow Holder Tutorial

What to do with all these bows! 

We love bows in our house!  Unless we have a bow on Elizabeth, everyday there is at least one person who says "What a handsome boy you have there!"  Seriously???

Today, I am showing you an easy tutorial to do a framed bow holder to organize all those bows.

Picture Frame
Glue Gun

Step 1:  Take frame apart.  Discard glass (or save for another project).  If there is a piece of cardboard in between the glass and the backing of the frame, save it to use for this project.  If not, cut a piece of cardboard to fit inside the frame.  An easy way to do this is trace the piece of glass.

Step 2:  Wrap the cardboard with fabric and hot glue.

Step 3:  Cut ribbon in lengths long enough to wrap around the edges of your fabric covered board.  Place the ribbon where you like them on your fabric board and glue ends to the back.

Step 4:  Place in the frame and cover with the backing.

Step 5:  You're done!

Here she is all dressed up!

Be sure to come back tomorrow for an interchangeable headband tutorial!





  1. CUTE!! People thought for awhile that my little boy was a girl so don't feel bad. I mean, hello! He's wearing green camo!!

    Hope you're feeling better!

  2. If I had girls I'd be all over this project :)

  3. Very cool! I love how it looks all loaded with bows! :)

  4. I am most definitely making this for my friend! She wears bows everyday!

  5. What a great and pretty idea. It looks like a work of art with all the bows on it. Thanks for linking to We're Organized Wednesday. I hope to see you back again soon.
