Clever way to store headbands

**Update** check out my newer post with a similar BURLAP covered container for headband & accessory storage!

I wasn't looking for a way to store headbands, it came up on my Google Reader the other night. The next day, literally, I went & bought a container to make one for myself.

I follow the "UCreate" blog, who linked up this headband storage tutorial from "Emilie Handmade" - so genius. and easy. and CHEAP!

How cute is this, seriously? I did mine a little different...with 2 different styles of scrapbook paper (originally from Kapri's bday banner last year)...because I honestly didn't have enough of just 1 style to cover the whole thing, haha! Then I used ribbon down the sides to cover where the 2 different papers met together. Then instead of leaving the lid clear, I applied some fabric glue & cut out a cute coordinating fabric circle to put on top.

Before....a MESS...squished flower headbands inside the left cubby

And After...nice & tiddy...even threw a few hair clips inside the container. Love.


  1. So cute! I`m going to make one tonight!

    1. I know right?!! They're awesome!! I also saw somewhere online that the same oatmeal container fits 2 rolls of toilet paper perfectly...a clever way to disguise those extra rolls for the bathroom!!

  2. I love this project. Thanks for sharing. Smiles, Paula

    1. Thanks Paula - it has definitely come in handy with all my hair accessories!

  3. What a great idea! I was just trying to figure out what to do with all of my daughter's headbands! I'd love for you to come link up to our party, An Oldie but a Goodie where we like to show off all of our old projects. - Jessica
