Horsey-Lovin' Hair Accessory Organizer...

For several months now, I've been wanting to get my girls' hair accessories in order, but could never seem to find the time.  Now that school is starting in a few weeks, I figured it was time to get down to crafty-business!  We had so much fun making it together, and I feel like it represents their personalities and something they 
really. truly. LOVE--
 HORSES!!



 Hair Accessory Organizer
 
You will need:
1. Canvas board (I got mine at Walmart for about $5)
2. Cute Fabric (fabric is mandatory, cuteness level is relevant)
3. Coordinating Ribbons (3-5, depending on the width) 
4. Brads
5. Hot Glue Gun

 Lay your canvas board over the fabric and cut around, leaving about an inch for wrapping around the wood frame.


Wrap the fabric around and glue down to the wood.

Layout and cut your ribbons, again leaving a inch or so on the ends for wrapping around. 

I put a brad near the ends so that it created a little loop to thread headbands through.

Glue ribbons to back of frame, then trim off with scissors.  ('Course you can skip this step, because no one will see the back!)

Glue some ribbon to the back, tie a bow, and hang it up!


Now when we're in the mad rush getting ready for school, I don't have to waste time searching all over the house for something to put in my girls' hair. I love that they can see them and easily choose which one they want to wear that day. Every minute saved in the morning really counts in our hair-brained house!

Oh how cute!! My girlie is too big now for bows and things! I sure wish I had fellow blogger inspiration when she was little, I totally would have made her something like this!

THAT is so cool. You are so crafty! I just made a bow holder for my Edyn but I like this fabric covered canvas idea better! Oh well. She can probably use two, right? I'll just have to make more bows. I always find something clever when I stop by. And, thank you dearly for your comments on my post the other day. You are a sweet friend, for sure.

Hugs,
Jami
