Headband Holders

As you can imagine here in the Felt So Cute household we have quite a few headbands.

And by “quite a few headbands” I mean 1,274 or so.  Therefore headband storage is a regular problem for us.  As part of The Great Room Redo for Little Cutie, I decided to tackle this issue.

I started with an empty Quaker Oats container and covered with a double layer of batting {I wanted the headbands to fit fairly snugly so they wouldn’t slip out of position}.

Then I covered it with some plain fabric {recognize it from this project?}.  I first made a quick hem with my glue gun to give it a smooth edge, and on the top and bottom I cut slits to make it easier to pull the fabric around the curves.

I bought some basic wooden shapes from Michaels – a round base, a doll’s head and the other piece was a part of a candlestick that I sawed part off to get the shape I wanted.

I painted them with a couple of coats of acrylic paint and then hit them with my favorite fixative to prevent any chipping when little hands use it.

I then glued the candlestick portion to the round base and attached it to the bottom of my oats container and the doll’s head to the top.

And here it is all ready to go!  Now I just need to make two more and I think she’ll be set {until a new season hits and she gets to go “shopping” in Mommy’s office for new ones!}

    Don’t remember how I found your blog (maybe it was a bowl full of lemons?), but I love your house and style! The character reminds me of our old house. Now, if I could just get our new house to have that…
    Your daughters are beautiful! Thanks for sharing with us.

    What a clever idea! My girls are both 20 now but I wish I’d had something like this to keep them organized when they were little! Love the bright colors you used too!

  7. That’s a great idea! I’ve heard of people using paper towel rolls to display headbands at shows. Makes sense to have something more permanent either for home or display. Thanks for sharing your creative idea with us.
