This time I was inspired by this pin from Lyssa Beth's blog. She had the clever idea of using an oversized empty oatmeal can to hold headbands. I don't know about you, but there is a lot of water involved when my kids use the sink. Which means a cute paper can sitting nearby would last less than one handwash/toothbrush episode.
|I love that she put hers on a pedestal too, but I know we'd knock that over 1087 times!|
I wanted to go with something a little less destructible, and found this canister a perfect fit. (Note: make sure whatever vessel you choose fits your headbands, you don't want them sliding off a too small can or being stretched out by a too large can.) Leave it to Target to have the Goldilocks of canisters.
Just to add a bit more zhush, I painted small wooden letters from the craft store and glued them to the top. Monograms make everything cuter, don't you think?
Then all you do is round up the headbands from under the sink, stuffed in drawers, in pockets of backpacks and laying around the floor (since this was the storage method of choice before), and pop them around the can.
I chose a white canister so the cute designs of the headbands could stand out. It's like instant decor....the
I prefer to keep most things put away (and off counters), but I think this Headband Organizer looks cute in the bathroom. It may be the main guest bath in the house, but it's also the kid's (when they aren't invading ours!). I painted the monogram letters the same green as the stepstool (which, by the way, is holding up grand with the shower curtain liner and fabric).
Lyssa Beth's is a great free option, but for only a few dollars, I have a more permanent version. And once Babygirl is over headbands, I'll simply pop the letters off the top and have a canister sure to find a new use!
Have you tackled anything from Pinterest lately? How do you organize the overflow of hair accessories that come with having little girls?!
