If you’re drowning in a sea of hair bows that seem to be multiplying in your kiddo’s room, we’re coming in strong with simple DIY to get those ribbons rounded up tout suite.
Supremely clever and crafty mums have been whipping up simple DIY hair bow holders, or bow drops for under $10, using items from Kmart.
Casey shared her creation in the Kmart Home & Decor Hacks Australia group, after being inspired by another mum. “I have been wanting a bow holder for ages but never found something I absolutely loved and suited the room decor.
“I decided to make two holders, because we all know the collection is going to grow! And I went with tiered lengths as I wouldn’t have been able to cope with even lengths being uneven. I also used the pink macrame cord to match the bedroom rather than the natural cord. All up for 2 bow holders – $18.”
How to make a bow drop
If you’re keen to make your own bow holder, here’s what you need:
Thread the beads through a doubled up length of cord and then attach each length to the rainbow. Easy Peasy!
Casey has a tip for anyone making their own bow drop: “The macrame cord frays really easy and is difficult to get through the holes in the wooden beads. By the second holder I figured out the best technique. Put two ends of the rope together and wrap in sticky tape to bind the ends together. Feed it through the bead and then cut the sticky tape off. Give yourself extra rope length to play with!”
