DIY Bow Holder Tutorial (Easy to Personalize)

Hello there, Mod Podge fans! It’s Linda here, from burlap+blue, and I have the most darling tutorial to share with you all today!

As some of you may know, I’m due to have a little girl this week! And do you know what one of my biggest dilemmas has been in preparing for her?

Nope – it doesn’t have to do with feeding schedules, what to pack for the hospital, or choosing a name – it’s figuring out what to do with all those adorable hair bows I’ve been collecting for her!

This simple bow holder is adorable and versatile . . . and so easy to make! Let’s get started.

DIY Bow Holder

Step 1: Gather your supplies, and begin by tearing your scrapbook paper into pieces.

Step 2: It’s time to pull out the Mod Podge and attach your paper to your letter. There are many ways to do this, but I work in small sections, adding some Mod Podge to the letter and attaching the paper.

It took me about 10 minutes to cover the whole letter. I worked on the front first, then tackled the sides of the letter.

Here’s the letter with just the top covered in paper . . .

After working on the sides of the letter, folding down and Mod Podging the paper, your letter will look something like this:

Step 3: Once dry, add a layer or two of Mod Podge to seal your letter.

Step 4: Take a piece of wide ribbon, fold it over your letter, and attach with a bit of hot glue.

And you’re done!

Use a little longer ribbon, and sew a few loops in it and you have a bow and headband holder.

What an adorable idea! You could put any kind of clip on this, you could even use it as a peg holder! Very creative
