Headband Holder

I have a ton of these cute lace headbands with bows made out of sheer ribbon attached to them. I learned the hard way that these do not do well shoved in a box with the rest of my headbands! Last night I finally came up with a solution for storing them.
I took an old formula can, the tallest one I had, then I took the label off. I'm sure you can guess what I did next!

Covered it up!!
To cover it I just cut out a piece of material the same size as the can, then I took the lid off and lined the edge of the fabric to the very top. I used hot glue around the top and bottom edges. Any fabric I had hanging over the bottom edge I just folded under and glued to the bottom of the can. I also covered the top part of the lid with fabric just by tracing it, then I lined the edge of the lid with ribbon. You could also use scrapbook paper with mod podge to make one of these.

Here is what it looks like with all the headbands on it. You can also store any non-fragile headbands or anything you want inside the can!

I still had more headbands so I am going to take this smaller can and cover it with different fabric that matches and stack it on top! But I need to find the perfect fabric first!


  1. Im pretty in love with this idea! I have had too many hairbows ruined by cramming them in the bow box! Thanks for the FABULOUS idea. Im going to get started as soon as I finish typing this comment.

  2. That's awesome. Duane was in our ward when I was in HS. He is a really cool guy. Small world!

  3. This is such a CUTE idea! I got rid of most of my daughter's headbands several months ago, but if/when I have another girl, I am going to do this for sure! Also a great baby shower gift idea! Thanks!

  4. what a GREAT idea!! Can I post a link to this on Dollar Store Crafts??
