Hair Bow Holder
I so wanted to post pictures for this idea and maybe next week I will just repeat with pictures, but this works for me. I have 3 daughters and a whole SEA of hair accessories. Bows that span the color of the rainbow, hairbands, and hair ties, ohhh the hair ties, they are everywhere (some call them ponytail holders)! Anyway, way back when my oldest dd was little I decided that I needed a system for this stuff and I found one!
I bought a TACKLE BOX! They have all of those nice little divided slots so my dd and I set to filling them ROYGBIV style (I think officially they have dropped the V from Mr. ROY G BIV, but ROY G BI doesn't sound right!) It is so neat to open it up every morning and go to the exact location of my color needed. So that takes care of the hair ties, tiny barrettes, and other girlie paraphernalia! (My tackle box has a top part that opens to hold all of the other poufy things that we somehow accumulate, but hardly ever wear!)
So now onto the hair bows. I love hair bows, all of my daughters are typically sporting one on most days and I just can't stand to get them all messed up, b/c the perfect bow is hard to find, unless you know someone, giggle. Anyway, I ended up sewing a D ring onto a 3/4 inch of ribbon and hanging it on an over-the-door bathrobe holder on the back of DD door, (if that doesn't make any sense - that is why I really wanted to use photos, but Blogger isn't letting me!) It has worked out perfectly for the last 9 years! I change the ribbon periodically but everything else holds up.
Hope that this makes sense to you because it really works for me!
