I have become obsessed with making headbands for Madie. It is probably because it is finally something simple and cute that she can do to her hair all by herself. She likes fixing her hair, but it isn't always something we'd like to hang out with all day :0)
Since we have an overload of headbands, I wanted to come up with something that could organize all of them so they didn't end up all over the house. I searched the internet and came across something similar to my creation below. I tweaked it a bit, but it is basically the same look as I saw on a few etsy sites.
So...here is my headband organizer. Super easy to make. I actually by accident made mine upside down (stuck the fabric on the wrong direction) but it doesn't really matter which way is up!
Empty oatmeal container
Batting (I used leftover snow blanket from Christmas--super cheap right now!)
Hot glue Gun
Embellishment for top (I used large Gerber Daisy)
Cut the fabric to fit around the container, leaving about an inch or so to overlap top and bottom
Hot glue fabric on. I turned the edge over and glued it over the end so that there wasn't a raw edge. You probably wouldn't need to since I ended up covering it with ribbon.
At the top and bottom, cut slits into fabric before glueing down over container so that it will lay pretty flat.
The inside is a great place to store barrettes and rubber bands, too!
Take the ribbon and glue it straight down the side with the seam. I chose to cover the seam with a glued down ribbon and then leave the other side not glued down so that you could attach barrettes to the ribbon for more storage options.
I also took ribbon and covered the raw edge on the inside of the container. Cleaned it up a bit.
Gotta Love Crafting!
I really need to add a kiddo post soon.
