Recently, my son-in-law painted an upstairs bathroom for my granddaughter from blue to pink. When I saw this wallpaper at the Brewster Home Fashions website, I knew it would be perfect for a couple of projects to help decorate it. This is another one of the wallpaper samples I got from Brewster.
The first thing I decided to make was a bow holder. My granddaughter is more amenable to wearing them these days, so she has quite a few now. I think having one neat place to keep them all will be helpful. I started out with a wood plaque from Michael’s and painted the edging with a mix of two different brand name chalk paints in pink. I had mixed them together to make up enough for another project I had done and had just enough left over for this project.
I traced out the front of the plaque on the back of the wallpaper. I used Mod Podge to apply the wallpaper to the plaque. Once it dried, I applied one coat to the top.
Once that all dried, I chose my ribbon and cut it to length. I stapled it to the front of the board.
To cover the staples, I picked up a package of three different shades of pink flower buttons. I didn’t realize it until I got home, but the flowers actually fit in with the flowers in the image on the wallpaper. I clipped of the backs and hot glued them in place over the staples.
Done and ready to hold some bows!
The final addition of a sawtooth hanger to the back and it is good to go, providing some wall décor as well as being functional.
