BowsGalore {Day 22 of 31 days of Revealing my “secrets” as a mom of 4 + time for decor & more}

Day22image 31seriesredirection3There is no “secret” that my girls are Girly girls!!!!

I hate it when a stranger asks, “What is it, boy or girl?” Really, doesn’t the pink blanket say it all? Alas, sticking a pretty bow in the hair eliminates those ridiculous questions but it also is just fun to make them look extra cute!

I have learned to LOVE making bows for my girls! I think we currently have WAY too many, but that’s what happens with 3 girls that have growing and changing wardrobes! Initially, I had a sweet friend show me how to make bows when I had Chloe and am so thankful for her help and inspiration. After a while I just started doing it differently and had fun coming up with different ways and styles. I am sure those styles are all over pinterest and the web, but I haven’t all that much time to research those. Plus, it’s fun to just figure things out on one’s own. At least it is for me, I like the challenge! lol

I don’t have a big tutorial for how to make bows, but honestly I think you can find every tutorial under the sun on Pinterest or the internet.

Here is our bow rack that Chloe and I made from an old mirror. The glass broke so we smashed it and put that in the trash. Chloe then loved to spray paint the frame a bright pink. We had a few rolls of fun ribbons that we cut to the appropriate lengths that we glued to each end of the frame to hold the bows.

  1. Ha! Brings back memories. My girls are now 16 and 19. Our home was filled with bows as well. I can so relate to what your saying about the boy or girl questions...The pink blanket is not aleays a dead give- away, for some anyway ;) I remember once when my 19 yo. was about 5 months, she was in a dress, pink blanket and full on headband with a flower and was STILL ASKED "Is it a boy or girl?"...Hope you have a extra BLESSED Tuesday!
