I am a mom to 3 girls, and if you're like me, you have a ton of bows/clippies laying around the house. I find them all over, especially when they decide to take it out and just drop it wherever they are! I had been using a length of ribbon looped around a nail in the wall- and this was my system for over 2 years. I finally got fed up enough with that to do something about it and started searching for options. I found several on Pinterest, but the ones I loved the most were made out of old frames. That's when it hit me: I have 4 barn wood frames just hanging around in the garage doing nothing. Time to put them to work!
All you need is a frame, ribbon, a staple gun, and possibly a glue gun. I purchased these frames for $5 a piece several years ago at the flea market in Nashville. They are made out of reclaimed barn wood. The burlap ribbon I had on hand, so immediate cost for this project was $0! Gotta love that.
Measure and cut your ribbon so that it overlaps the frame and can be stapled.
Staple the ribbon down, pulling it tight. Because I used burlap, I decided to run the hot glue gun down each end for added security.
Hang your frames. Store your bows. That simple! I also love that it adds visual interest to the wall- almost art like.
There are so many possibilities with this project - think gilded frames, bright colors, and sparkly ribbon. I may even change out the ribbon every so often for fun! Happy crafting!
