We threw one of my good friends a couple’s baby shower over the weekend. One thing that simply amazed me? Every single girl handmade a gift for the expecting mama… and it wasn’t planned! Yeah, bloggers and Pinterest definitely inspire people these days!
Well one of my gifts for the mom-to-be was a Monogram Hair Bow Holder for her baby girl. Super easy to create and customize to fit any nursery decor!
- monogram letter
- scrapbook paper
- Mod Podge and foam brush
- exacto knife
- wood plaque
- flower embellishment
- hot glue or e6000
So to get started I covered the letter in Mod Podge and stuck it to my gray chevron scrapbook paper.
Next I trimmed around the edge using an exacto knife. Great for getting in those little crevices… just make sure the blade is sharp.
Then I trimmed four long pieces of ribbon and hot glued them to the back of the monogram letter.
Onto the next step… I painted the wood plaque white and drilled two small holes in the top (you’ll see why later). Then I used e6000 glue to adhere the monogram letter to the white plaque.
Once that dried I cut another piece of ribbon and tied it through the drilled holes of the plaque for hanging.
And of course I had to add a little flower for a pop of color and some bling!
And then the hair bow holder is ready to hang!
Nice personalized gift that you can create in any color scheme. Great for a baby shower present, birthday present for a little girl you know, or just your own kid’s bedroom!
