As I’ve mentioned before, Lil’ J literally has HUNDREDS of hair bows. She wears one almost every day, and has at least one that’ll mach every outfit.
I made a hair bow holder using a picture frame, a headband tree, and now, I have another way to store her bows because I made this fun Headband Holder using Oatmeal Cans.
I’m thinking I’m going to incorporate some random act of kindness with all of these bows we have. She sometimes gets a comments on her bows from other moms while we’re out. Maybe I’ll keep a stash with me to share with little girls who notice Lil’ ‘s bows. It’ll help me de-stash the overabundance and do something nice at the same time.
If you’re looking for a way to organize headbands you have all over, here’s one way. It frees up some space by creating a place to put bows inside and around.
Remember how I got oatmeal cans from a woman off Freecycle? Well little did I know there are a couple of sizes of oatmeal cans. I had the small kind, but the large kind are best for this project.
I bought two cylinders for about $3 each, poured the oatmeal into tubs, and got to work.
Here’s what you’ll need:
Scrapbook paper (or fabric)
Modge Podge or glue
Sponge or paint brush
Step 2: Spread modge podge or glue the canister.
Step 3: Stick the paper to it. If it doesn’t fit all around (mine didn’t) then cut a little extra paper to close the gap, and glue.
Step 4: Cut a circle piece of scrapbook paper to fit on the lid and glue in place.
Easy enough right? Some people use candle stick holders to act as a prettier base, and if I find some at a thrift store I may add that element.
Hope this helps someone else who’s overflowing with bows. Have you made anything crafty or delicious lately?
