Easy DIY Bow Storage

Tuesday, January 12, 2016


Ok Moms of little girls - this post is for you.

The bows...they are everywhere, am I right?

I might have a slight weakness for bows too. If I see a cute bow, I'm more than likely going to buy it because they are just too adorable to pass up. And K looks so sweet in bows. I kept that habit up for awhile and suddenly realized, I was rotating between the same three bows because they were on top in the bow basket. What about all of the other cute bows I bought?

One day after getting K dressed, I got to thinking that it would be so much better if I could see all of the bows at once. That way I would use different bows more often. I created a simple DIY in my head and made it happen. The best part about this DIY? It took me all of five minutes and cost me zero dollars since I already had everything! Ok, that was two parts!


-blank canvas
-staple gun


1.) Use whatever size canvas you want. I had previously bought several 12x12 canvases for a monogram in K's room, so I had an extra 12x12 canvas left over. I decided to keep it white, but you can always paint or decorate your canvas if you want.

2.) Grab some ribbon and measure it out long enough to fit over the entire length of your canvas, with some extra length included at the top and bottom to secure on the back.

3.) Using a staple gun, secure the ribbon on the back at both the top and the bottom. I pulled the ribbon tight and pressed down to staple. You can space them as far apart as you need; I just eyeballed the distance between each ribbon and "measured" with a hair bow to make sure there was enough distance between them.

4.) Hang on your wall and attach bows to each ribbon.


Easy peasy right? I can't believe I didn't do this earlier.
We hung the bow storage behind K's door, so it is easily accessible, but doesn't take away from the other decor in her room.

Now I'm on to figure out how to create a DIY for all of the headbands!


  1. I'm obsessed with organization & this is seriously one of the cutest things I've seen for when it comes to organization!
