This weekend we are attending a cute 4 year old’s birthday party named Ella. As soon as we were invited I knew exactly what I wanted to make her! A personalized bow holder. I am obsessed with making bows for my daughter and have been wanting to try out mod podge. Plus as a mom I love receiving homemade thoughtful gifts instead of toy clutter, don’t you?! Her mom will be thrilled I know 🙂
Here’s what I started with. I bought an already painted white E at Michael’s for a couple bucks and some Mod Podge, and cute scrapbook paper. I also got out some matching ribbon from my stash…and yes for those who know me I have quite the ribbon collection! Ha ha….And yes my daughter does have a matching bow or flower for every outfit 🙂
I traced and cut out the E, then painted a thin layer of Mod Podge. Then you place your paper on and very carefully smooth out the bubbles. I used an old gift card to smooth mine out. Let that dry and then add a layer of Mod Podge on top. So easy and cute!!
After mine dried I added ribbon on top to tie and also ribbon on the bottom for bows!
I also made Ella a couple bows to match her holder.
Here’s the end result!!!! Love 🙂
Look at this cute pillow case dress I found yesterday at my local Kid to Kid Resale store for $6.99! This will be perfect for my little girl to wear to the party! And of course I had to make some matching bows for her 🙂
Happy Friday! Hope everyone has a beautiful weekend. I am excited for a sunny spring training baseball game with my family as well this weekend! Perks of living in the desert!
