Head Band Round Up

A few weeks ago, we were getting together some outfits for school picture day.  In doing so, my daughter Madelyn started searching for the perfect headband for each outfit we sampled.  This led to a lot of "where is..." and "remember my..." type questions, as the collection had scattered itself throughout the house is a random fashion over time.  We did our best to hunt, gather, and organize.  This is what we came up with, and our step by step of the fun quick project that we did ourselves:
DIY Headband Stand

I had stashed away an empty oatmeal cylinder, waiting for the day it would find it's calling.  Today was the day that it would become our Headband Stand:
We sorted through our scrapbook paper collection to find the perfect page to cover the container.  Using a glue stick and a little tape to move things along at a quick, fun, kid friendly pace, we attached the paper to the exterior for a decorative cover.
Next, I found this pretty ribbon in our craft closet.  We could've left it alone or found another embellishment, but this ribbon was one I purchased while still pregnant with Maddy, thinking that I would use it as tie backs in her nursery.  Turned out the curtains I bought didn't need them, so I held onto this until the right project came along.  This made the project even more special for me;)  The glue stick worked great, allowing the fabric to attach to the paper with little effort.
Truly, this project took less than 15 minutes, but it was good time spent together, and she was so proud in the end.  While I cleaned up, she added some stickers to the top edge (not pictured), and made it even better.  The inside of the canister is a great catch-all for her loose hair ties, barrettes, silly bands, and miscellaneous treasures.  This is a fun and functional project, incorporating recycled materials, resulting in a useful organizational piece!  Shiver and shriek!!!!
