Hot for Headbands!

Happy Hump Day Y'all!

I'm gonna go out on a limb here and guess that many of you preppy readers love headbands as much as I do.  Am I right??

Well....assuming I AM right, today, I'd like to share a fun, EASY do-it-yourself project with you:  a headband display.

I came across this craft a few summers ago when cleaning out my closet.  I found Groom Your Room, an American Girl book with tons of do-it-yourself projects made with everyday household items.  I flipped through it and discovered some pretty cool ideas!

Anyone remember this?

This project is super easy, all you need is:  tape, a hot glue gun, a roll of paper towels, and ribbon and fabric of your choice.

(I apologize I don't have pictures of the different steps..I made this years ago before I ever even thought of having a blog!)

  1. Unroll the paper towel roll until it is the desired width (I'd get a headband or two to measure it; if you get the Super Rolls like my mom, it will be a bit too thick for your headbands to slide on).  
  2. Use a piece of tape to secure the paper towels after you've unrolled it to the right size
  3. Wrap the paper towel roll with your fabric, making sure it is centered so the ends are even.
  4. Use your glue gun to glue the fabric down in place.  
  5. Tie ribbon to each of the ends to secure it
Voila!  The final product:

I think I might need to make a second one!

Since making this, 5 or 6 of my friends have followed suit!  It is such a cute and easy way to store all my headbands!

Now, if I was starting fresh-- here are some headbands I'd add to my collection to fill the holder:

Do you wear headbands?  If so, do you have a favorite headband designer?  How do you store your headbands?
