A DIY Bow Holder That Doubles As Decor

When I was pregnant for the first time I was hoping for a boy. I knew that there were way more accessories for baby girls and that I wouldn’t be able to hold back.

I was right. Baby #1 was a boy, I bought him a hat or two, cute shoes, a watch eventually. Then along comes baby #2, a girl. She wasn’t even out of my belly before I bought her first accessory – a gorgeous flower crown for newborn photos. That was quickly followed by way more bows, headbands, and sparkly clips than that tiny head needed.

If you’re anything like me and have bows and clips piling up in your little one’s bedroom (and your room, and your kitchen, and every flat surface…) this DIY cloud bow holder is just the thing you need to get them corralled!

Organizing Hair Accessories The Cutest Way Possible

I came up with this specific bow holder design because I wanted a cute gift for a friend and am forever obsessed with everything rainbow. I picked ribbon colors that perfectly matched her comforter, for a modern pastel rainbow palette.

That’s the coolest thing about this craft – when you make your own you can customize it to match the recipient’s room or favorite colors. And it makes an awesome gift! It’s not just adorable cloud wall decor, it’s a functional hair accessories organizer!

My full detailed tutorial of this rainbow cloud bow holder is available for $5 on Etsy here for instant download.

It has photos to guide you every step of the way and even includes bonus embroidery ideas to further customize your cloud!
