Default how do I make this hair bow holder?

I saw this on Etsy and this is so beautiful! I would like to try and make one for my own dtr but have no clue? I saw the wood plaque at Michaels and I assume she just attached the ribbon to the back but where would I find the scroll? and how do I paint wood? and stenciling name? any ideas? Thanks for any input.

It looks to me like the plaque comes with the metal hanger. I'm sure if you googled wooden plaques you could find some pretty cheap online. As for the ribbon...my guess is that it's glues or stapled to the back...super easy to do. To me, it's the painting that makes these really special. She's obviously a really talented painter (not me at all) and probably sketches the design and then freehand paints it. So, if decorative painting is not your strong suit, then yes, you could get stencils or use those self adhesive vinyl letters and then paint the rest. The paint it pretty inexpensive. You can find it at any major craft store. It comes in small bottles and there are usually a million colors to choose from and range in price from $0.99 - $2.00/bottle. The trick is to get good brushes (my mom is an artist and has ingrained that into me) because that's how you get the ability to get nice lines and even coats. Does all of that make sense?

One other thought is to decopauge (sp?) a fun fabric, tissue paper or scrapbook paper on the plaque to get the background design and then stencil or paint your dd's name over that. You could also get paint markers and just write/paint the letters.

Oh, one other trick I learned for lettering....you can print our your dd's name from your computer in the size and font you want for the plaque. Turn the paper over and trace around the letters with heavy pencil. Then flip it back over and lay it on the surface and rub over the front side of the letters with your pencil again. It will leave an outline of your word on the surface and you can use that as your guidelines for paiting.

Sorry for the SUPER long response! I just love good ideas like this and finding creative solutions to do it myself (and not spend the $69.95). HTH! Amy

they have those plaques at walmart for around $4.50...it has the metal deco piece on top. Just paint it and add your ribbon. I think they're adorable.

Painting them can be more difficult than it looks. I paint and had a hard time with my polka dots. Walmart has that exact plaque. I use round sponges for my polka dots that I get at walmart. I also apply wooden letters instead of painting them on.

i use a paint pen for lettering. i find it easier to write them on rather than paint them.

those are really cute would be very easy for someone to make for themselves. i personally would not spend $70 on it especially if I can make it all for less than $6, it would only be the time spent on painting, etc. good find, i think i want to make one just like it for my girls now!

i have an idea for doing dots..for smaller dots i used the little different sizes of wooden sizes to trace them barely on the wood...after painting them..you could use anything really with a bottom with the size of whatever circle you want..just be sure trace around it lightly with a pencil...i made one of these for my sisters niece and they loved it...just an idea..
