Learn how to make a DIY bow holder! This great budget craft tutorial will show you how it's done; customize with papers you love.
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
Gather These Supplies
- Mod Podge Gloss
- wooden or paper mache letter (I got mine from Hobby Lobby)
- foam brush
- scrapbook paper
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!
