A new twist on hair bow organizers

Today my daughter says, "Mom, I want summer."  Me too, me too! It's still a ways off, but she is feeling closed in, due to the ice, snow, below freezing temps, and let's see...more snow.  Now she is sick and can't go outside, so I can understand where she is coming from.

To ward off that feeling in myself, I have been super busy with projects.  A lot of repeats, benches, rustic signs, etc that don't need to be repeated on here.  I have also been busy filling in special orders, which brings us to today's post.

I had an order for a hair bow holder.  Nothing new, simple to do, but this one needed to be Minnie Mouse themed.

My initial internet search didn't pull up anything along the lines that I was thinking of, so I thought I would share this.  I grabbed some black felt, paint, ribbon, hooks, frame and hot glue gun.

1. Paint you frame for the theme.
2. Add hooks, ribbon, and any other details.
3. enjoy!

Here I am using a pencil eraser dipped in paint to add polka dots to the pink ribbon bow for Minnie's "head".  I glued the felt ears to the top corners of the frame.

So this is a new twist on hair bow organizers right?  Character designs.  I can see it now...Hello Kitty would be super cute, too.
