Headband Holders

Well I finally sat myself down and looked at my "Projects" list and decided it was way past the time for procrastination and start doing some of the things that need to be done.  Number one on my list was to make a headband holder from make it my own for my girls.  I have been saving hot chocolate containers (they are the perfect size)  for the past 3 months and I finally decided to sit down and tackle the problem.

I think the reason I kept putting this project off was that I wanted to put a twist to the idea and make them completely unique.  Well, the need for these holders has surpassed my ability to be creative. 

Here's what I did.
I took the containers and some scrapbooking paper.

Cut the paper to size.

wrapped it around the can (you'll need two pieces to do this) and glued the paper down (I used hot glue, only on the seams to avoid warping).

and voila, your done.

Yep, that easy.

It took me less than 10 minutes to make all three.

 and now look at how organized the headbands are. 

The only thing I didn't like about this project
 was how long I waited to do it.

 I forgot to add that I spray painted the lids with Krylon paint. 
 It seems to have worked well, no flaking yet.

So what did I learn:

  1. LOVE this idea! Very cute, and practical! This would be a great way to display them at craft shows! Great idea!

  2. Way better than what I've got goin' on!
