One of the joys of having a baby girl is thinking about all the hair clips, bows, and headbands you can put in their hair (or lack there of). My sister is letting me borrow all of the headbands and hair clips that she used for her 4 daughters, and boy do I love the selection to choose from already! As I laid them all out on her dresser, I was wondering what the best way to store all them would be?
I remember thinking that my sister had an adorable hair clip holder and I remembered seeing ideas on Pinterest, on how to make one. The one thing I do not like about following a “pattern” is that it is easy to get stuck on how someone else did it. I wanted to just try and create my own. It ended up being a MUCH easier process and project than I ever imagined. Granted I suppose it doesn’t look complicated, but for me, often when I start a project, it never goes as planned.
If you are wanting to have some fun and customize a hair clip holder for someone as a gift or even for your own daughter, here are a few SIMPLE ideas (project took me 20-30 minutes) on how to create one on your own.
I purchased this $4.00 frame from Wal-Mart. You can buy as big or small of a frame as you need.
I had some extra fabric from a project I did years ago, so I decided to use up what I have. It helps that this fabric matches perfectly with the colors we have in our baby girl’s room – navy, pink, and light blue! I cut a piece of fabric to fit the size frame I bought. I then hot glued the edges to the back of the insert for the frame.
Make sure it’s tight!
I then dug through my old scraps of fabric and I found a light blue and pink polka dot, which I decided to use as the strips for the hair clips to clip onto.
Hot glue the edges, leaving a little slack so that you can still attach the hair clips
Put back into the frame and voila!
With using a frame, you can either set it on a dresser or hang it on a wall, for another decorative piece!
Again, you can use whatever size frame you want and also attach as many strips for hair clips as you see fit. Just keep in mind the size of the clips so that they do not overlap too much. This was such a fun project and I could customize it to how I wanted it to look. If you have an extra 20-30 minutes, give this DIY project a try!Don’t forget to sign-up for the HomeRight SteamMachine GIVEAWAY!
