"Sweet" Headband Holder

After making my hairbow holder, I realized that now I needed something for all of the headbands.  My little girl has gotten to a stage where she actually wears more headbands than anything now, so I had to come up with something!

I have been working with a sweets theme for her bedroom and wanted to play with that idea a little.  I am sure by now you have seen the fabulous headband holders in blogland that have been fashioned from old oatmeal canisters.  Well, this is a spin on that idea but instead of standing upright, mine is laying horizontally.  I started with this canister from a protein shake.


I wish I would’ve had some spray adhesive but I did not so I had to work with what I had which happened to be a hot glue gun.  Hey, it works!  I removed the paper label from the can and hot glued a layer of quilt batting on. 


Then, I cut a rectangular piece of fabric from some old clothes that were about to be tossed out and glued it on.


On each end, I tied the excess fabric with some ribbon and pulled tight.  That was it!

It looks like a big  piece of candy in a wrapper  and works great for keeping her headbands in place.   It also reminds me a bit of a roll pillow. 

Here it is next to some of her bedding so you can get an idea of how it will go with her room.  I would love to show you her room but right now it is a total wreck!   Her comforter set is Kingdom Parlor Play from Disney.  The comforter itself is reversible with the word “Sweet” on one side and a floral print and ruffle on the other.


She has these two pillows, one that looks like a giant cupcake, and another that is reversible.

It looks like it could’ve came with the set!

I think I’m done now with “hair stuff”.  I made some more headbands and clips but I’ll spare boring you with each and every one! 

One more time, though…isn’t that cute? 
Pin It!
