Hair Bow Holders from Limepetal


Here's a really cute craft idea from a friend I met at the church boutique over the weekend. These adorable hair bow holders from Limepetal's Etsy shop keep your little girl's barrettes organized in one central place. It's like organizational jewelry for your nursery or child's room! There are nicer photos on the Etsy page, but I took a good wide shot that shows how to construct these. They start with a balsa-wood circle (perhaps a xmas ornament form?), with a one-inch wide grosgrain ribbon hanging down, to which the barrettes can be clipped. This is masked by a decorative felt circle at top and bottom. A narrow ribbon at top allows the organizer to be hung in a convenient place.

Sometimes acknowledging when you need help can make you a smart parent. This is one easy craft to make if you have the time, but if you're like me, and would procrastinate endlessly, you might be smarter to purchase from Limepetal. At least it's handmade!

What organizational tools do you find most convenient in a child's room? Please leave a note on my blog.
