This spring I am all about organizing! With our new baby girl, I am so excited to make some girly decorations to put in her room! Although our new baby is only 2 months old, I decided to make a cute hair bow organizer for all of the cute bows I know she will eventually accumulate!
This hair bow organizer is adorable, it has a custom name, lights and clothespins that can hold more bows or even photos! The best part is that you can customize it to look the exact way you would like it! (be sure to check out our mason jar headband holder as well!)
Here is what you will need:
2 complimentary shades of paint
Sting lights with clothes pins
Anything you would like to add on
Here is a video of how we made the bow holder:
How to make your bow holder:
Paint the inside of the crate.
The first thing you will do is paint the inside of the crate whatever color you would like the name to be. I wanted a gold name with a pink background, so I painted the inside of the crate gold.
Next create the name.
We used a Cricut to make the name. To do this, I measured how big I wanted the letters and then I used a pretty font (Autumn in November) in design space to type out her name. If you don’t have a Cricut, you can always use stencils!
I then printed the name on adhesive vinyl and then transferred the letters to the crate with transfer tape. I did have a little trouble with the vinyl adhering to the rough wood, so I would recommend using a smooth, sanded surface if you can. Either way after a little fighting, I got the vinyl placed on the wood.
Once you have the lettering placed on the crate, paint the entire thing in your chosen background color.
Now that your bow holder is dry, peel off the vinyl to reveal the gold underneath. Smooth out any rough edges with a small paintbrush.
Attach ribbon to your bow holder.
The ribbon is where you will clip on all of the bows. We cut three long and two short pieces of ribbon in a pretty color that matched the crate. We then attached the ribbons to the crate with hot glue on the underside.
Style your bow holder.
To tie everything together and make our bow holder look amazing, we added a few final accents. First, we wrapped the crate in copper wire lights and added clothespins. We also glued on a few accent flowers to enhance her name even more!
Here is the final bow holder:
What I like about this project is the fact that it is super stylish and cute but also functional. I love the addition of the lights and the clothespins to give it an even more unique look. I hope you enjoyed this tutorial and that you will consider making your own stylish bow holder. We would love to see your finished projects in our Facebook group and would love to hear your comments below. What other cute things have you created for your little girl?

Thank you so much for checking it out!
Very good tutorial! The finished project looks just like one you would find at Hobby Lobby! (That I would be drooling over) This is perfect for my future granddaughter due in Sept!
Congratulations on your granddaughter!! I love that it is super cute and functional!
Very well done tutorial, and really cute project! I will definitely have to make this for my granddaughter. She is a little young to truly appreciate it now, but it will be nice to make it for a gift for her second birthday.
Thank you! I hear you, I made this for my 2 month old, I just couldn’t wait! Now she just needs to grow some hair lol!
This is such a CUTE idea!!
How fun! 😀 I love this idea! I was just thinking about how we have so much hair stuff bunched into a box. Now I can do something fun for it!
Thank you! I love that it is pretty and functional!!
I like the idea of doing the same thing for a boy’s baseball hats!!! Could use burlap and maybe use men’s ties in place of dangling ribbon?!! Very versatile project!!!
That would be adorable! Great ideas!
