Can you guess what this cute headband/bow holder is made out of???
Who doesn’t have a box of this in their pantry?
Well maybe you don’t have a love for oatmeal like I do?!? This headband/bow holder is so easy you will wonder why you haven’t made one sooner! I have had this boring oatmeal container under my bathroom counter for probably 2 years with headbands around it and my girls would ask me when I was going to decorate it? I figured after 2 years it was finally time to make it cute!
First you want to rip off the Quaker Oats paper from the container so it doesn’t show through your contact paper. I decided to use contact paper because it’s fast and easy and you don’t have to worry about any glue. It also comes in different designs and I found it at the Dollar Store which is an added bonus! Next you will cut your contact paper to fit your container. When you put your contact paper onto the container you will want to peel the paper back slowly to prevent bubbling.
After your paper is on you will trim the extra paper off the bottom so it will sit nice and flat. I attached a ribbon on the back with hot glue so you are able to clip hair bows or flowers onto the ribbon.
Here it is with some flowers and bows attached!
My oldest daughter wanted to put this in her bedroom so to dress it up we added a silver candle holder she already had to the bottom of the container and hot glued some pom poms we had around the top. If you don’t want the candle holder on the bottom you can just sit the container on your counter. This bow holder is so functional you can also store your extra bows and elastics inside the container.
This is such a great way to store those headbands that mysteriously end up on the floor and get stepped on and broken. In the end I only spent 1.00 to make this project. This is such a fun project you can make in no time at all with spending very little money!
