I have seen many cute ideas/projects for bow holders. This is my version of a bow holder tutorial, but many aspects of it can be changed to make it your own custom project.
- Various ribbon
- Hot glue and hot glue gun
- Wooden or chip decor letter “O”
- Silk flower(optional)
I used a letter “O” as my base to make the holder, but you can use any letter to customize it for a particular person. I chose the “O” because you can use it as a frame and incorporate a picture into your bow holder. Next, cut your ribbon into pieces that will wrap around the letter. I used 4 to 5 inch pieces for my “O”.
Hot glue one end of your ribbon to the back of your letter. Wrap the ribbon around the letter and secure it with another dot of hot glue.
Wrap and secure another ribbon around the letter making sure to overlap it over the first ribbon. Continue this pattern until you have completely covered your letter in ribbon.
This is what my letter looked like after I finished wrapping it. Cut an 18 inch piece of coordinating ribbon that will be used to hang your bow holder.
Make your ribbon into a loop and put the letter on top of the loop. Fold the ends of the ribbon up to cover the front of the letter and wrap it around to the back.
Hot glue your loop and ends to the back of the letter.
Hot glue a long piece of ribbon to the bottom, back of your letter. You will store your bows on this piece of ribbon.
I added a silk flower to the bottom of my long piece of ribbon to give it a cute, finishing touch. You could also add a bow to the bottom or just hem the ribbon under to prevent fraying.
Now you have a cute way to display all of your beautiful bows. Have fun making this cute, practical project!
