Pin for the Wednesday: DIY Magnetic Hair Bow Board
Posted Sep 12 2012 6:28am
Welcome back to Pin for the Wednesdays! It took a one-week break to celebrate my birthday. But now that’s old news, and this weekend I actually MADE something so I am pretty excited to show you my winning pin!
Since I’ve been working with Girls Crochet Headbands , Sophie has amassed a large collection of hair bows very quickly (I can’t help it! They’re cute and the prices are good! And they had a Labor Day sale! Don’t judge me!) and I needed a way to organize them STAT. So of course I turned to Pinterest, where I found lots and lots of ideas, and as you might expect, I chose the one that looked the easiest, this one , and made it even easier. Because crafty I’m not and lazy I am! Here’s the pic from the original pin, of a bow board made of metal that holds the bows on with magnets.

This crafty lady like, cut sheet metal and glued ribbon on and crap. NOT ME! I went the easy route. But it still worked! I found a magnetic message board at Target for $6.
My super-awesome husband picked me up some strong, round magnets at Harbor Freight – 99 cents for 10! Woohoo!
I got some sticky letters that we already had and put them on some construction paper to spell Sophie’s name, and glued it over top of where the board said “Messages”.
Then, I stuck the metal clips on the backs of the bows to the magnets on the board and arranged them just so:
TA-DA! I am soooooo pleased with myself! The whole thing took me less than 20 minutes! Feel free to leave me a comment and tell me how awesome I am it is.
