DIY Bow Holder From Clay In His Hands

A few days ago my friend Sarah from Clay In His Hands posted a great DIY project. Not only is it a DIY project but it is one most people can do for little to no money spent! How great is that? Anyway, let me show you what I made, thanks to Sarah :-)

I started with an old picture frame (that I already had)

Then I spray painted it white (with spray paint I already had)

Then I wanted to go buy some ribbon. Instead I thought "what would Sarah do?" and well Sarah is one of the most frugal people around and she would dig and dig and dig in her craft box and find any ribbon and be content with it. So I did. I dug and dug and dug. And I found some ribbon!

Well I found some ribbon and rickrack. And magically they are perfect for Lula Mae's Disney room!

After my frame dried I placed my ribbon and got my glue gun ready.

I used an old coaster to help me secure the ribbon snugly to the frame.

This is my finished product! The ribbon was not perfectly straight, but that is the beauty of homemade.

Lula Mae has a few bows.... we like bows okay.... even when we hang out in our footie pajamas we like bows....

And it wouldn't be me if I didn't throw in a crazy amy-trying-to-be-artsy-photo :-)

This project cost me nothing and I am really pleased with it. Sarah is quite the crafty one and can always do it while pinching her pennies. I love that she finally pushed me to do a project!

I have a birthday gift I am going to be working on soon and I can't wait to share it with you too! How awesome are homemade gifts?!

Amy, you are so sweet! I of course didn't invent this on my own...I've seen many similar before to inspire me. ;-)

Yours looks great! It looks like a much better size than mine. I'm going to be on the lookout for a bigger frame one day. :-) Great pictures too!! I'm sure Lula Mae is thrilled!
