How To Make A Hair bow Holder
Moms of girls know that storing hair accessories can be tricky. With each of them being different sizes and shapes, just a few bows can easily merit a large space for storage. With the delicate nature of bows, you can’t just throw them in a drawer or pile them in a zip top bag without getting crumpled up or bent out of shape, so smart storage is the key. Luckily, I have a fun D.I.Y tutu hairbow holder tutorial that is low on space requirements and perfect for any little princess! It won’t take long to make, and the supplies add up to under $30. This is something that you can do with your daughter, as a party activity, for a best friend or fellow mom, or even as a fun handmade gift.

Hair Bow Holder
Now I will show you how to create a diy bow holder.
First, print out the Bodice Pattern. There are several sizes available, so choose the one that is right for you. Once printed, cut it out and tape the two sides together, then use it on a piece of cardboard to cut out your bodice.Tutu Hairbow Holder Tutorial With a Bodice Templatehttp://bit.ly/2xKI3LyClick To Tweet
Once cut, attach two layers of quilt batting using a hot glue gun, then cut any excess off to keep your bodice shape. To finish off your bodice, lay a piece of fabric out flat, then place your bodice on top. Cut a loose 1-2 inch border all around, then cut into the sides to make “strips” all around so that you can fold them over to cover your bodice. Once cut, begin pulling them around the back of your bodice one at a time, and glue in place. After that, glue on two pieces of ribbon for hanging as shown below.
Your next step is to make your skirt, and for this you will need to cut out 20-30 strips of tulle. The sizing will be your choice based on the size of your bodice, but make sure to double the length of each strip you cut so you can fold them each in half. Once folded, take a small string and tie it around the end, leaving 1/2 inch free. With all of your tulle cut and tied, begin gluing them along the bottom edge of your bodice to make a skirt.
After you have a full skirt, glue on ribbons lengthwise as shown (these will be where your hairbows are held). Next, take a ribbon and glue over the tops of your tulle, making a belt. If one ribbon doesn’t cover it fully, add a second or third.
You can adjust the pattern to create a headband holder too.
