Dresser Mirror Barrette Holder

My two little girls have a whole lot of flowers and bows!  (I went a little crazy after having 5 boys first!)  I didn't have the time to make one of those fancy bow holders, although I would think about it all the time.  I previously kept them in a box that I kept inside their dresser drawer, but they kept falling out and it was so disorganized and messy!

When we moved a few months ago, one of my older boys came up with this idea and it has worked great!  He took a long ribbon, about 1 to 1.5 inches thick, and pinned it to the back of the mirror.  Then draped it along the front of the mirror and pinned the ribbon to the bottom of the mirror. 



So simple and easy!  And now we just clip the barrettes to the ribbon and call it good!  We have two ribbons down both sides of the large mirror on the dresser.  My daughters love to pick out what flower or bow they are going to wear that day!  Usually I have to encourage a "matching" one to go with their clothes...

Ok, it took me a minute to get past the fact that you had 5 boys THEN 2 girls! Wow! Had to wrap my head around 7 kiddos! LOL!
Cute idea :) When my daughter was younger and wore all her cute bows I did something similar. It's nice to be able to see them all so they actually wear them. Thanks for linking up!2
