DIY Headband Holder

So, as I've posted before, I am re-doing McKenzie's bathroom in order to de-clutter the clutter. My initial post, in case you missed it, was the Jewelry Display Board. Here's part 2:

I spray painted my oatmeal container before wrapping it in the fabric because my fabric was see through so keep that in mind before glueing your fabric right away.

There is really nothing to this project, it literally took me like 10 minutes. Just lay your fabric right side down and wrap it around your canister. I used mod podge to adhere the fabric. If your fabric has a pattern like mine, make sure it lines up where the ends meet. {To keep the fabric from fraying later on I also mod podged over the seam.} Using the mod podge, wrap the fabric tightly around the bottom and top side of the canister.

Do the same for the lid as well. Once you glue the ends down, run some mod podge over them to keep them from fraying later on.

After the mod podge is all dry you can add your base. I used a candle holder. Before I glued it to the bottom of the canister, I made sure I got the candle holder centered and then traced an outline as a guide. Then I used a lot of hot glue to make that sucker stick good!

And wallah!!

I wrapped my lid separately because I had originally planned to keep brushes inside the canister. However, I didn't think it through enough because the skinny base made it tip over when I added the weight of the brushes. The skinny base does hold up perfectly for the headbands and a wider base would work great for using the canister as a brush holder as well!

Stay tuned for the third and final bathroom makeover project. I will also be posting all the before pics that motivated me to do this makeover. What organizing projects have you completed?

  1. Hi Amanda - I absolutely LOVE this DIY and what an adorable hairband holder. I love the extra touch with putting it up on a candle holder. Thank you for linking up at the Peace, Love, and Chocolate party and for your support. Hugs, Holly

    1. Thank you so much! I'm so glad you like it :)

  2. This has to be the prettiest way to organize headbands! Too bad I have this idea! I'm so glad you shared with us at our Get Your DIY on party!! XO

  3. This is awesome! I never thought about putting a pretty base on it! I am planning on putting the elastic style headbands inside of mine. :o)

  4. But you can put all the hair ties and barrettes in the canister! Love this idea!

  5. so cool, and so easy!

  6. Beautiful, I’ll be making
    This for my nieces ����

  7. Just made it without the stand. I placed a plastic container that fits tight inside the box
    Where she can keep the hair tights and doesn’t have to go all the way to the bottom of the long box to fetch them 😃. Thank you for the idea!

  8. I just made a unicorn version with unicorn print. Put a strip of ribbon down so i cN put hair clips on it. Plus i added ribbon at the top & bottim. Painted my candleholder with a blue sparkle. Adding a top from a wood piece that i painted & added a glass swirly knob. If wood piece slids just glue some wood pieces inside the container.
