As I said yesterday I worked really hard trying to come up with gift ideas, so today I am going to tell you one that is easy and cute for a girl. I got this idea from my cousin’s little girl’s room. She is very girly and has a million hair bows. So, I was over at there house and notice the super cute hair bow board in Ava’s room. I looked at it very close and decided I could EASILY do this. So here is a how to on hair bow boards for you.
- Canvas (I used a 16x20)
- Staple Gun
I went and got supplies at Hobby Lobby, and I bought the extra fabric bundle. I planned on making more than one of these since both pregnant friends are having girls. The fabric bundle was the perfect size at 18x21. I had lots of choices which made picking the fabric hard. I laid the fabric and stretched it over one side at a time and stapled it to the wood. Once every side is stapled down I measured out and stapled down the ribbon. The ribbon doesn’t need to be too tight. Each column is about 2 inches apart. I added a ribbon to hang the board from but that isn’t necessary. It could be hung the same way any canvas is hung. I would recommend taking a hammer to all the staples to ensure they are flat.
I am so sorry, I didn’t take progress pictures. But here is what the two I made looked like. Also, add hooks to the bottom for the headbands to hang. I added 4 hooks to the bottom of each of these. It will be perfect for keeping hair accessories organized.
