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