With a baby girl on the way, the collection headbands are really starting to get out of control, and she isn’t even here yet! Flowers, Ribbons, Bows and in all colors, you can imagine I need to find somewhere to put all of them. I then found this idea for a DIY baby headband holder and I was sold! With some simple supplies you can create your very own Headband Holder. This is the perfect project for a weekend afternoon!
A Large Size Container (Oatmeal works best, but see what you can dig out that will be the right size)
A Pillar Candle Holder (You can find this at the dollar store so you don’t break the bank)
Fabric (So many patterns to choose from!)
Spray Paint (Again Color Choices!)
Fusible Hem Tape
Ribbon and Embellishments (Optional)
1. Cut your fabric to the size of your container, leaving a little extra on the edges for overlap.
2. Use the fusible hem tap to iron a 1/2″ hem on one of the short sides of the fabric.
3. Generously apply the spray adhesive to the wrong side of your fabric. Starting with the unhemmed edge, wrap the stick side of the fabric around the container. Make sure you keep the top the fabric lined up with the top of the container so you’re still able to open it.
4. When you reach the hemmed edge of the fabric, glue it down with your glue gun.
5. Any extra fabric along the bottom edge of the container tuck under the bottom rim to create a smooth finish. Use your hot glue gun to secure it.
6. Now comes the paint part! Spray the lid of your container and the pillar candle holder with your paint color. Once they’re both dry, apply a clear topcoat for protection and a nice finish.
7. Cut a piece of felt slightly smaller than the base of your pillar candle holder and secure it to the bottom with hot glue. This will help prevent your creation from scratching the furniture.
8. Now it’s time to put it all together! Hot glue the container to the top of your pillar candle holder. You can add something inside the container to give it some weight. Either oatmeal, rice or dry beans would work great. Once you’re done, hot clue the lid to the top to seal it.
9. You now have the chance to get creative and add some embellishments but using ribbons, buttons, felt flowers and even paper cut outs. It’s up to you!
You work too hard for your money to throw it all away on full price when you don't have to!
