Question princess crown bow holder - attaching ribbon?

I'm making a few bow holders for my upcoming show, using that small pink princess crown from Michaels. What's the best way to attach the long ribbon strands to the back?

I used glue and a staple gun to do mine. It's holding good so far and it gets tugged on often. HTH!

I just picked up a few as well. I'm thinking of using a staple gun.

I made one for Blaize and I used a staple gun for it.

I would also use a staple gun to staple it to the back. But, also take a piece of ribbon sealed at both ends and hot glue it over the staple, so it looks more finished, if you're thinking about selling them too!

yes, please do hide the staple if you plan on selling. We had someone who wanted us to put their holders on the website but they didn't hide them. Now, if it was something I was going to make for myself, it wouldn't matter, but to sell, make sure the back looks good, too!

I take a piece of felt and cut it to cover the back. (in whatever the shape is)- then glue it over the back so no one can see how things are attached. It also protects the wall.
