Did I read this on CC or make it up in my head? Did someone make a PVC or wood dowel "tree" for drying bow loops? I have an idea of what it would look like but I was wondering if I imagined that I read about it here or really someone made one. If so, where is it? My search feature is being weird, I click next page and it says that my search did not yield any results.

Anyway, if it is here, can someone guide me to it? If not, well, I will post after I figure out how to make it (actually have my dad make it). Thanks!!

I made all the pieces for a bow the other day, assembled tonight and the bow was butt ugly. I used a wooden dowel with too small a diameter. crisis averted this time but I want to find this darn bow tree!! I hope someone finds it soon!

I don't recall seeing that one, but I would sure be interested in it too.

I saw it in the thread started by MadgeOwens about cake decorating clutter. Can't remember exactly how it's titled...something like "if you do this for a hobby..how do you organize your supplies." Hope this helps.

It was definitely here. I specifically remember someone's husband had made them one. It worked so well, they were making them for/selling them to people here.

Now if I could only specifically remember who it was... icon_confused.gif

Mamawrobin, you're awesome! But good Lord Madge has 1700 posts, I am searching all of them now.

Arts- I knew I was not making it up, though it would not have shocked me if I imagined a cake contraption.

I've been searching MadgeOwens as well...beginnig to think maybe I'm wrong that she started the thread. I saw it on here like day before yesterday...and I know that it is in a thread about storing cake supplies in the home icon_smile.gif

I read the thread about hobby bakers and storage and unless I missed something I did not see the bow tree in it. I have to admit, I am super excited that I am not the only one who saw this! I am almost positive that it was recently and maybe awhile ago too, before I made my first bow months ago.

woooo hoooooo. Thank you. That'll be sooooo easy to make. Once you make a whole wedding party full of pvc figures for halloween, this will be a breeze. Can't wait.

I bought one of these from Jaime Ann (is that her name?) and I just love it. I not only use it for drying bow loops, but I also use it for hanging my gumpaste flowers upside down. It also comes apart easily for easy storage. I wouldn't be without mine! icon_biggrin.gif

I got mine from Nicholas Lodge's website, but I think other places sell them.

Just wanted to show you what I dry my loops on. I bought two long dowels at Hobby Lobby. One is 1/2" and the other is 1" in diameter. There are two cabinets near my kitchen sink with a window between. The dowels fit perfectly up there and are out of my way. Total cost was $3 or less.

jamm jenks that's cool and so cost effective.icon_smile.gif I just went and purchased the pvc pipe and it can make a pretty large one for about 10. It was really easy it took me and my hubby about 30 min and that was using a hacksaw and with some readjustments.

I do something similar to Jammjenks. I flip 2 plastic cups over and tape the dowl to them. I leave it sitting on my counter while I cut the fondant/gumpaste and hang them right over. Cheap/easy and you can move them if needed (like if you were making bows for 35 table cakes and needed to have about 10 dowl-rods full of loops... all drying around the house)....
