DIY Headband Holders

My girls have a lot of hair accessories. Between the three of them, I bet we have about 200 hair items. I made bow boards for their bows with clips a few months back but that left me with a ton of headbands and elastics stuffed in a drawer. Not to mention the bundles of crotched baby headbands that Ballerina wears. Well I decided to make my husband's day and do something about it.

I took a Quaker oatmeal can and a Countrytime lemonade can and covered it with Mod Podge and some brightly colored scrapbook paper. I added coordinating ribbon to the top and bottom of the can for some added flare.
I made the yellow can for my mother. She has short hair but wears headbands often. For now she has her headbands overflowing in a wicker basket on her vanity. I think she'll love it.

I added a few of our headbands to get a good measure and have found out that I may need to make two more. Yes! We have that many headbands.

The inside of the can is perfect for Ballerina's crotched bands. I am loving this so much and it looks so adorable sitting on my vanity!!

I really2 love big ornament headband ( i dunno how to call it xD) and the ornament tend to become loose due to the glue has worn off . I usually put it in a box or drawer and that cause it too become loose . so thanks to you I can put my headband away easily without worrying about it ! :D
