HairAccessory "Wall Art"

I've completed a cute new project to share with you - a hair accessory holder.  It was so easy and cost me less than $5. Most of it was in my stash already!

Here are the supplies I used:

  • one sheet of Basic Grey paper
  • one sheet of card stock
  • tacky glue
  • one roll of ribbon ($1 bin)
  • one wood frame ($1 at Michael's)
  • Flower leaf stamp
  • 1 Prima flower
  • 1 button
  • letter stickers
  • Staple gun

To complete the projet, all you have to do is lay the frame face down on the paper, trace and cut a paper replica of the flat top of your frame.  I use my finger to spread a thin coat of the tacky glue on the frame.  Then simply glue the the paper replica onto the frame.

The inside I just decorated like I would any card.  You can put your child's name inside, a sentiment,  a simple flower, butterfly... really whatever strikes your fancy! To replicate mine: I stamped a flower stem and leaf on a smaller piece of card stock and added a paper flower and button center. Last touch was to add  a dashed white line around the frame.  I then pop dotted this smaller piece onto a larger piece of the same color card stock and inserted into the frame like I would a photo.

The ribbon I  stapled onto the back with a staple gun.  Because the ribbon was a very thin organza, I did put a piece of corrugated cardboard over the ribbon to keep the ribbon from shredding from the staples.

I didn't need to make a hanger and there was the plastic store hanger still securely fastened to the back.  I just hid it in the ribbons.  Overall, the project took me about 30 minutes start to finish.

And there you have it!  Not only do i not have to dig in Katelyn's drawer to find matching hair accessories, she has a pretty piece of "artwork" on her wall too.
