A DIY Summer :: Week 2 :: headband holder

This week's tutorial is a headband holder out of an oatmeal container. So if you made last week's project- then this one will be a perfect display for it! I first fell in love with this headband holder concept at my friend's baby shower almost a year ago. I had no idea what it was made out of, but was instantly drawn to how adorable it was. When I found out it was an empty oatmeal container I was double in love! I eat oatmeal every other morning for breakfast so there is no shortage of containers in this home :) Since I have a baby girl, headbands are an accessory necessity for me. This craft cost me under $5 and took about 5 minutes to make. Not only can you place headbands around the outside- but the inside is also great storage for hair clips, bows, etc.
Please note that there are definitely fancier ways of making this, I just chose the quick and less expensive route ;)

-scrapbook paper
-candle holder (got mine at michaels & used a coupon of course)
-empty oatmeal container

1. Cover your container with your scrapbook paper (lining up your edge with the top) and tape it into place on the side

2. Take the excess paper hanging off the bottom and fold it under the container. Tape in place (this can be messy since you won't see it).

3. Hot glue gun the base of the container to the candle holder (or leave unattached- your choice)

That's it- you are done! Too simple right? Now go decorate it with pretty headbands and make another for a friend :) Enjoy and see you next week!
