Bow'quet

KennaKat's bows and headbands were 
out of control

In need of a special place to call home.

A place where they wouldn't get lost 
in a jumble of clutter on her dresser,
& could possibly look as cute as a decoration, 
as they do adorning the top of her head.

**Meet Bow'quet**


I must admit that I love her.

She keeps things orderly and adorable 
on top of the currently cleared off dresser top.

{That wont last long because the dresser top generally houses all of the out-grown clothes that will be passed on to cousin Lani, that have not yet made it to the large bags in the closet}

The creation of this little cutie was free

If you'd like to make one for yourself, 
this is how to do it:



Supplies:
Oatmeal container
Mod Podge or glue
2 sheets of Pretty Paper 
{I used that of the scrapbooking origin}
Sticks
Container stuffer
Cute bows and Headbands

  • Coat oatmeal container with Mod Podge
  • Place paper around container
  • Smooth out air bubbles (I'm not so great at that) 
  • Coat top of paper & remaining container with Mod Podge
  • Cover with 2nd sheet of paper
  • Smooth out air bubbles
  • Apply another coat of Mod Podge
  • Allow to dry
  • Gather sticks while getting pounced on by eager puppy hopeful of playing fetch
  • Clip bows onto tips of sticks
  • Arrange sticks in container
  • If sticks are too low, stuff the bottom of the container with paper, or better yet, foam


Enjoy!
