Bow Frame

I have been meaning to do something about all the hair bows I have. I was keeping them in a shoe box which is definitely not ideal when you are looking for a specific bow. So I decided to make something to see ALL the bows at once. I am sure this has been done by other people and its really not a big deal but I thought I would post about it anyways. I bought a frame from the D.I. for 50 cents and painted it black. I then stapled some left over fabric from when I made my girls tutu's into a criss cross pattern(I have seen other people use chicken wire instead). It took about 30 minutes which seems like a lot of time but that is because I was pushing kids away from the wet paint most of the time. You know how it is...

I think it turned out pretty good. I am very happy with it!

Very cute and so creative! I have a bow board made with chicken wire. It's nice to have them all organized! BTW, when do we get to see pix of the new ride!?
