How to make a holder for headbands:

Marking a spot on the container for the center.
  • Step 1. Remove the lid from the container and set aside. Use ruler and pencil to mark the center of the container on the bottom.
Fabric tape being applied to container.
  • Step 2. Cut a piece of fabric tape and wrap the oatmeal container in it. If any fabric tape hangs on the bottom of the container, simply cut slits about 1/2″ apart and tuck the fabric tape under the container.

  • Step 3. Place the lid on a piece of card stock and trace it onto the paper. Cut out, just inside the line so the paper fits on top of the lid.
Circle being cut out to glue to the top.
  • Step 4. Attach the paper to the lid with hot glue. Once you are finished hot gluing, place the lid on the container.
  • Step 5. Wrap pipe cleaners around a pencil to create a spring. Use hot glue to affix one end of the “spring” onto the butterfly.

  • Step 6. Repeat until there are three butterflies on three separate pipe cleaner springs.

  • Step 7. Attach the opposite end of the spring to the rim of the lid with hot glue. (Note: attach the “springs” onto the back of the container where the seam of the fabric tape is.)
  • Step 8. Wrap the rim of the container, covering the lid edge, with ribbon and tie into a bow. If necessary secure with hot glue.

  • Step 9. Wipe the top of the candlestick with a cotton ball coated in rubbing alcohol to remove oils and clean it. Let dry.
  • Step 10. Spread E6000 glue onto the top of the glass candle stick and gently press into the center of the container using the center mark as a guide. Set overnight to set up.

How to store Headbands:

  • Simply place the headband around the container. It will stay securely and you can stack the headbands on top of each other. It makes it easy to stay organized.

Tips to for diy headband organizer:

  • Hot glue. Make sure you have a good glue gun and lots of glue sticks for this craft.
  • Clean the candlestick. The top of the candlestick should be cleaned thoroughly prior to adding the glue and container. Rubbing alchohol will remove any oils so the glue can adhere properly.
  • Allow to set overnight. Once the glue and candlestick have been applied, it is best to allow this to dry and set overnight. It will ensure it is sturdy and well secured.

Variation ideas:

  • Containers. We used an oatmeal container for the perfect size. You can try other containers such as grits containers that are typically smaller. This might be perfect for baby headbands that are smaller.
  • Fabric Tape. Coordinate the colors of your baby girl’s bedroom and use the fabric tape in the color of your choice.
  • Ribbon. You can use any color that matches your decor.
  • Embellishments. The butterflies are darling but other cute ideas include flowers, bees and more.
  • Clips. Attach clips to turn this into a bow holder.
