There is a little secret behind my daughter’s bedroom door.


I’ve collected a few bows over the years that I’ve been raising 2 girls.
I’ve tried to take care of my bows and keep them in pretty good shape.
I didn’t want to stuff them in a drawer and so I made this little bow hanger years ago.
I think it has kept them in pretty good shape.
However, some of these bows are like 7/8 years old, so if they aren’t perfectly perky, you know why.

I just bought a little peg strip from IKEA and painted it white.
Then I bought some grosgrain ribbon and sewed a little loop at the top.
Then I took another piece of ribbon through the loop and tied it on the peg.

Over the years I collected a few more, so I cut the ribbons longer and attached them to a metal ring.

Then I just put these rings on the pegs, so the bows are now 2 deep on some pegs.

Not too genius, but it is very functional. My girls know where to put their bows when they’re done with them.
This little system has worked for a while and it is tucked away in an unused space.

I thought I might not be the only one who gets grumpy at the sight of a smashed pancake bow!
