Initial Hairbow Holders

Hello Everyone!!
I hope everyone is having a great day!! Mine didn't start off to well. I woke up with a killer headache. But thankfully after some ibuprofen and my husband watching the kids and letting me sleep it off, I am much better now. So I thought I would post these adorable hairbow holders I made yesterday. My friend texted me yesterday morning wanting to know if I could make two more hairbow holders for her by Saturday. They are for a birthday party. Of course I said yes!! I love making these things!!!
Since I had already done the Personalized Name Plaque in bright pink and island blue color, I figured I would just use the same colors for the hairbow holders. I love the color combo! It's so bright and summery (not sure if that's even a word)
Anyway, I bought the wooden letters at Hobby Lobby for $2.49 a peice. I just painted the letters with the pink and blue colors. Then went over just the top portion of the letter with Extreme Glitter paint (from Wal-Mart) It adds just the right amount of sparkle. Then I used some coordinating Prima flowers and buttons to add a little embellishment. And lastly, I hot glued the ribbon for the streamers and hanger.
I have one more hairbow holder that I will be postly in the next few days. Stay tuned and have a great day!!
