Framed Magnetic Bow Holder

I am SOOO excited to share with you guys a fun piece I made for my girls’ room this past week that was inspired by the and adorable Disney book, Minnie in Paris. It doesn’t always happen where I have this vision in my head and the project actually turns out just like I wanted. This next one did though, and I LOVE how it turned out!!

I wanted to make a really cute Bow Holder for all the bows my girls have. I wanted to change things up from the “standard” Bow holder tutorials you could find in stores and on the web. I thought it would be ideal if I could make it Magnetic, because most of the clips for the bows would stick right to it. Fortunately, I was able to find a magnetic piece at the store that I thought would be perfect. Pair that up with some adorable stacked frames, and some cute knobs and you have a CUTE Framed Magnetic Bow Holder!!

Here is how the piece turned out…

Yes – I LOVE it!! Mind you, this is just a fraction of the bows we have for my girls, but this adorable 11×14 frame can fit tons more, and I can’t wait to put it to good use! I thought adding knobs would be perfect for other accessories, like this bubblegum necklace. More than anything I’m just so glad I was able to make a totally unique and adorable Bow Holder that fits in their room perfectly. :)

If you’d like to make one as well, here is what you’ll need…

SUPPLIES:

– Wooden Frame with wide edges

– Paint (craft or spray paint)

– Magnetic Sheet Metal (Bought mine at Hobby Lobby)

  • Any saw that will cut sheet metal if you need to cut your piece

– Hot Glue Gun and glue sticks

– Magnets

– Scrapbook Paper

– Mod Podge

– Foam Brush

– Knobs

– Command Strips/Nails to hang

– Magnets

– Drill and Drill bits that match the diameter of the nut for the knobs

DIRECTIONS:

1. Paint your frame(s) and let dry.

2. On the backside of the frame, measure how large of a sheet of metal you can put on the inner-lip of the frame. For us it was 11 1/8″ x 14 1/8″. We cut our sheet metal slightly smaller than these dimensions.

**Any type of sheet metals works as long as magnets stick to it.

To cut the metal to the desired dimensions we used a 4″ skill saw with a sheet metal blade. You can also use a jigsaw with a fine-tooth metal blade.

To round sharp edges we used a metal file.

3. Insert the metal into the frame and hot glue the edges to securely hold it in.

4. Drill holes where you want your knobs to be. If there is a thick bolt to hold on your knobs like there was for ours, drill a recessed hole in the back with a larger drill bit to accommodate the nut.

*NOTE: If threads on the bolt for the knob are too long simply use a metal hacksaw to cut off the excess.

5. Cut pieces of scrapbook paper just slightly smaller than your magnets. Mod podge these on by applying a thin layer of mod podge with a foam brush and adhering the paper. Let dry.

Place your magnets on your sheet metal (they provide a stronger magnetic connection) and your bows should stick right to the magnets!

All of the bows we had worked since most clips are metal – SWEET! :)

The girls LOVE their new pink bow holder and have already covered the sheet metal with the rest of their bows!

This project was inspired by a new and adorable book we recently got, called Minnie in Paris.

 ABOUT THE BOOK:

Fashion is Minnie’s passion! And, as a result, she’s been invited to show her bows on the runways of Paris!

At the airport, Minnie is so busy taking care of her nieces, Millie and Melody, that she accidentally switches suitcases with Penguini the magician–and finds that his suitcase is full of bunnies instead of bows! Minnie must round up the mischievous little bunnies, find Penguini, and make her bows in time for the show. Will she make it?

Readers are treated to a stunning tour of famous Parisian locations, from the Louvre to Tuilleries Gardens to the Eiffel tower, to a classic Parisian bistro—all in search of Penguini’s bunnies.

Now that my Lily is reading, she was able to read this book to us a family and everyone loved it.

The girls loved that it was all about Minnie (yes, we’re Disney nuts), and I was particularly fond of the beautiful illustrations…

The hubby and I both enjoyed that the book showed so many of our favorite places in Paris (yes, we’ve been and we LOVED it!!)

 The graphics are so colorful and beautiful and the book is a wonderful addition to our library!

If your kids love to read books, I’d highly suggest this little treasure. We’ve read it several times now and continue to enjoy the cute story about some of our favorite Disney characters!
