Initial Hair Bow Holder

After 15 months of having a little girl, I finally got around to making her a hair bow holder! I had been keeping all of Jillian’s bows in a big bin. It had gotten really disorganized and I could never seem to find the bow I was looking for without dumping all of them out on the floor! :)

I went to Hobby Lobby and bought a wooden “J” and a roll of polka dot ribbon. I used some pink paint I had leftover from Jillian’s First Birthday party to paint the J pink. After it dried, I hot glued two long pieces of ribbon at the bottom of the J and attached one at the top as a hanging loop! I made the two strands of ribbon really long so that they could each hold a lot of hair bows.


Here it is hanging on the inside of her closet door with all her girly hair bows!

I kept all her headbands, hats and bows connected to headbands in the bin.


This project was super easy and super inexpensive! I think I spent about $5 on it (not including paint, since I already had it).

Hope you all have a great weekend!

What a cute, fun idea Jennifer! I love the color of the "J"! Your little girl sure has a lot of hair bows...that's so awesome!

I just did something that I think is super cute with those big letters too in our house. I actually used big and small S's since that's the first letter of our last name. I finished the project last night and posted on my blog about it just this morning. You might like the idea too! Just thought I'd share that with ya!

I love your blog and think you're family is just so sweet!

Have a great weekend!

So cute Jennifer! I was thinking of doing a giveaway of one of those on my FB page! Good to see you back to blogging!

Cute! I saw someone on Pinterest had made a headband holder out of an oatmeal canister, if you need an idea for organizing them.

Just a tip - take 2 thumbtacks and push through the ribbon and the hot glue. It will give a little more hold in case the hot glue gets weak :) It's on the back so no one will see it anyway.

It's very cute!

Cute idea. I was just looking today for a wooden piece for my niece (since my girls don't wear bows) but the idea of doing her initial makes me want to run right out and buy it. Great job. Do you know what size initial you bought?
