It starts out with a couple innocent bow clips for their little baby hair, then a few tangle-free mini rubber bands for those tiny little pony tails.
And the next thing you know you can’t close the medicine cabinet because headbands and barrettes keep tumbling out faster than you can shut the door!
Until recently we had hair twisters in baggies in the medicine cabinet, headbands in the dress-up drawer of my daughter’s room, and barrettes probably in every room of the house. I really wanted to have all the supplies in one convenient place. I tried using some little storage containers to put them in the medicine cabinet, but the headbands did not want to cooperate, and the rest of it just took up too much room.
There’s a simple recycled craft that is the perfect solution!
Make this DIY Hair Supplies Organizer and contain the hair accessory clutter.
DIY Hair Supplies Organizer
- large, clean food canister (We used a large cocoa can, but an oatmeal container will also work.)
- Colorful Scrapbook Paper
- Hot Glue Gun
A large cocoa can, or even a large oatmeal canister, is just the right size for sticking headbands around. The inside is perfect for holding hairbrushes and twist ties or barrettes.
Measure the container carefully. Cut your paper so the ends will overlap just a bit. Use the hot glue gun to secure it in place.
When you are finished, stick all those pretty headbands around the outside.
Fill the canister with hairbrushes, combs, and the numerous hair ties that always seem to disappear.
And the best part of this DIY hair supplies organizer?
No more twist ties and headbands falling out of the medicine cabinet every time the door is opened.
