Headband Holder Tutorial

I have returned to our local farmer's market.  I will have to share pictures soon so you can see all the wonderful crafters.  I sell children's clothes and accessories.  In setting up my booth I came across several display needs I need to work on.  I am planning on making some headbands to sell, so I need a way to display them.  Here is what I made.

I started with this:

I used an empty oatmeal tub for my base.  I measured the height of th carton.

It measured 9 1/4" so I marked that on the back of my self adhesive 12x12" scrapbook paper I found at Hobby Lobby. 

Then I cut off the excess. You will need two sheets to make it fit around the oatmeal carton.  I took the backing off the scrapbook paper and applied it carefully and slowly to prevent bubbles.

This is pretty basic but has lots of potential.  You could personalize it, decorate the top, use the carton to store bows inside- lots of possiblities.  I still need to work on these headbands and make a sign to come out the top of the lid for my price. 

Please don't forget to vote for your favorite recycled tin project over at fireflies and jellybeans  for the iron crafter.  I am #10 tin lid necklace.


  1. That's quite a thrifty reuse. All the colorful headbands make it very cheery.

    I would like to invite you to visit the cottage, and join in on the fun for all three of my linky parties:

  2. great idea. Those oatmeal containers come in handy don't they?

  3. What a great idea!! You could store so much in there

  4. The money you saved by making your own display piece can now be used for more crafting supplies, which turn into more money made, to buy more crafting supplies, more money, more supplies! Good for you! You are very clever! And storage inside for extra product! Thanks for sharing on Modern Craftswoman Monday! Rory

  5. Thanks for linking up to the Mad Skills party!

  6. Thanks for linking up! I'll be featuring your idea on my Saturday Showcase tomorrow. Be sure to come grab a featured button!

  7. Love that recycled way of organizing headband! We can also use that to hold other hair accessories or other stuffs like ball pen, etc. Anyway, thanks for sharing that cute idea.

  8. I went to your store looking for the headbands like the ones in the picture but could not find them. Are you selling them yet? The poor child has no hair and needs a headband!!!
