In a moment of spare time, I often think “what can I make?”
With the likes of Pinterest and craft stores that are filling malls and outlets all over the place, it is hard not to get the itch to stitch, make and take, etc.
After having a daughter and realizing I had more headbands than I knew what to do with, I was bound and determined to find a way to organize and display them in a cute and decorative way. I am not even sure where I had found the idea (probably Pinterest), but there was a baby headband holder that looked simple to make and easy to display, that I couldn’t resist making.
The only problem was that for the life of me, I could not find white clothespins that would fit the bill. I could find plastic ones, but they were not simple enough to suit my taste. Instead, I found plain wooden ones, which are pretty easy to come by, and had my husband take them apart and spray paint them white. A tedious task that I wasn’t willing to ask him to do every time I wanted to make a baby headband holder (even though he was willing).
I kept thinking to myself, SOMEONE has to make white clothespins that are simple and rustic looking! After doing some searching, I found Craft Supplies For Less! To be honest, I had never heard of this company before, but since I found the exact white wooden clothespins I was looking for on their website, I have now bought several packages from them. The thing is, they do not only have white clothespins – they have an incredibly wide variety of craft supplies, really, for less.
These white clothespins have made making my baby headband holder MUCH less tedious and I can now make it in about 20 minutes. From start to finish. I have shared this tutorial before, but thought I would share it again, since it really is just that easy. The only difference is that I now use hot glue instead of mod-podge to attach the fabric (which is MUCH easier!). Here are the simple directions:
One other thing I like about Craft Supplies For Less is that they have fun ideas on what to make. In writing this post, I wanted to include another fun craft idea – decorative magnetic clips, using the white wood clothespins. Lo and behold, I jumped on their website and they had this exact craft listed as well, as another craft idea to use the white clothespins for. Here is their example:
If you are looking to make a headband holder like the one above or make decorative clothespin magnets, Craft Supplies For Less has made it that much easier for one of my readers!
