And my best friend Teo took this next one for me, since she knows I love them…I couldn’t believe I didn’t get any when I was in Romania, but then I remembered it was snowing the whole time. I’ll have to hope for rain when I go back next summer.

Easy Hair Bow Storage

So…I have a ton of hair bows, flowers, butterflies, etc…And yes, I wear them all the time. Sometimes too many at once. Like a pro.

But here’s the problem…how to store them all?!

First I will show you the end result, and then I will show you how I got there.

So, all you need is yarn, scissors, and 3M hooks! Don’t get the little baby kind…I tried those first and they didn’t work for me. Get the normal-sized kind…I don’t know exactly what size they are, since I have had them for years and don’t have a box to refer to. 

Ok, so here’s how you do it:

First, decide where you want them…I did the inside of my bathroom cabinet and the inside of the linen closet in my bathroom. 

Then, put the hooks on in a zigzag pattern, like so:

Let them stay there, all alone, with no friends, for at least 24 hours. This decreases the likelihood of them falling off later.

Waiting, waiting, waiting….OK, now that you’ve waited…time for the next step!

Choose your yarn color…mine, of course, was pink. I bought a TON of balls of yarn at a thrift store one time for like 25 cents each, so I picked one of those.

Then, tie one end to one of the hooks…and zigzag the string back and forth, using all of the hooks. Go back and forth 3 to 5 times. Then tie a knot at the bottom!

Now…accessories!

I divided mine by color…and yes, it is impossible to tell because they are on the beautiful quilt that my grandma made me for my birthday this year…but if you can see them, they are divided by color!

Then, attach them to the yarn! It’s that easy!

Ya like!?

I do.

Then.

About 2 weeks later.

I found 4 more.

But I didn’t have room!

So I added more string between the zigzags, and POOF. 

More room. 

Plus, we all know I will inevitably buy more…so this leaves plenty of room for growth.

Oh, and I also have butterflies…

And there you have it – easy hair bow storage!

Oh, and if you have some that don’t have a clip on the back, they have just a hair tie, that’s a perk of using the 3M hooks!

Check this out!

Its just hangin’ out there. 

A huge perk of this…when you close the door and the cabinet, it all becomes a secret.

OR IF YOU WANT!!!….you can put them out in the open and everybody can see your beautiful collection! Up to you. 

Now, any ideas for how I can store my headbands?
