Making It Monday: Hair Clip Holder

Pin on PinterestShare on FacebookTweet about this on TwitterEmail this to someone

It’s Monday!  That means it’s time for Making It Monday.  Some weeks the crafts will be super simple, some times they’ll be a bit more complex, and sometimes they’ll be perfect for toddler participation.  Regardless you can be sure that you’ll always find something adorable with instructions so easy to follow that even the craft-challenged will be able to replicate the project in their own home – promise!

Last week I successfully organized the girls headbands by repurposing an oatmeal canister, but then I realized we still had a mountain of hair clips that were all shoved in a little bin.  And that is what this week’s project is all about.  I went to a local thrift store and picked up a large old wooden picture frame and got to work making this hair clip holder.


Materials & Supplies:
Wooden Picture Frame, Ribbon, Spray Primer, Spray Paint, Staple Gun

1.)  Take apart the picture frame so that all you have left is the wooden frame.  I then used a bit of cleaner and made sure to get all the dirt off.
2.)  Spray with primer, wait 15 minutes.  Top with a coat or two of paint.
3.)  Staple ribbon on back evenly spaced across entire frame.
4.)  Hang on wall and display all your hair clips.  So simple!


We filled this frame up pretty quickly…. might need to make another, hehe.  I must say I love that all of the girls hair clips and headbands are now on display so I can easily see what will match their outfits for the day and they just look cute too.


And as always be sure to check out my other Making It Monday posts for more craft fun.

      gorilele de acolo au fost avertizate sa ne puna la punct, chiar si o doamna directoare care a uitat saraca sa mai distonocalm, aincercat sa ne intimideze, si cum suntem noi timizi din fire,am ramas fara replica ..sincer de cand am fost acolo mi-a fost mila de oamenii acestia deoarece ei nu inteles demersul nostru, ei au bagat la inaintare.ei nu realizeaza ca ei sunt carnea de tun , si ca patronul ii va sacrifica cand cich-ul nu mai produce dolarei si euroi vazut disperarea .. de acea cred ca acest demers trebuie sa scoata la iveala putrefactia acestei afaceri . 

    • Isn't it WONDERFUL to be able to have a mini-disaster like that NOT cause you to break down in tears, because you are so desperate?I've been tight with money lately – both hubby and myself were unemployed for 6 months. Both are now back to working as teachers, and enjoying having money (though that once a month thing sucks).

    • Dear Emily,We can’t believe that your two years in Senegal are coming to a close. It seems like yesterday that you were leaving. We have been appreciating your blogs all the way through and wish you the best as you make your transition from your site. As you pack things up, we are sure that you are packing lots of good memories and enduring friendships. Thank you for sharing your journey with us.Love,Joan & Steve

  5. Lolli S says:

    I love this! I must do this for Baby A’s room. Hubby and I are always on the hunt for her hair bows! This idea is awesome. Thank you for sharing with us all!

    I would personally never need one of these, I have two boys, but my brother might. It’s a great idea and looks fairly simple to make. I have a small woodshop and will occasionally make little projects for the kids. I used to make furniture for the house but with no need and little time I no longer do that. I made some cork boards for their rooms a short while ago, they hang up their awards and school projects.

  7. Denise L says:

    What an awesome idea! I needed this years ago when my daughter was little. She will be 21 next month and I just away all her hairbows and barrettes from when she was little. She had tons. We could have filled up a few frames 🙂

  8. Amanda says:

    Oh I love the frame you picked out!!! I made one for the baby last year! Here is mine! I added hooks for headbands

  9. Lisa Kuhl says:
