I've been seeing bow holder ideas online a lot and I've been wanting to make one for Andrea's bows and clips. I like the ones made from frames... but I didn't have a frame. Or I thought I didn't... until I remembered this:
We used to have 2 fruit bowl paintings hanging on the wall in our dining area a while back. I think these were popular back in the 80's. I remember seeing fruit paintings in the walls of some of my friends' houses back then. The 2 we have were already in my husband's house before I moved in, but we took it down when we had the downstairs area repainted a few years ago. Since I put a cabinet against the wall where these used to hang, we never got to put them back and they lay hidden in our storage area, forgotten... until I had the dire need to make a bow holder and started hunting around for a frame.
I removed the painting from the frame (and kept them... they aren't really my style but you never know when I might decide to decorate my kitchen and those fruit paintings might come in handy) and spray painted one white and one black. I decided to use the white one for my bow holder.
Since I don't have much surface area in my bow holder to hold all of Andrea's bows, I just took the bigger ones and clipped them to the satin ribbons:
I am linking up to the following link parties:
