DIY Hairpin Holder

November 16, 2015

Hey folks, if you missed my post last week at Orgjunkie, here it is. This is a great way to organize all those hairpins for your little girls. This would also make the perfect Christmas gift!

If you have little girls in the house, you probably have something that looks like this.

If you love little girl hair accessories like I do, these pins might be stashed in a drawer or container. 

I have an easy DIY project to help organize hairpins and barrettes. It’s easy enough for the most uncrafty person! A few years ago, my friend and I sold handmade hairpins, but now I just like to give them as gifts to friends. Since I have two daughters, I’ve made numerous hairpins for them and their friends. Here’s one inexpensive way to organize them.

Gather your supplies. You will need a lighter, glue gun with a gluestick, key ring, long ribbon, and a thin piece of wood that’s sold in craft stores. You could really use anything that has a flat back and has a bit of weight. Wood pieces, like the example you see above, are less than $.99 at the store. I just grabbed some satin ribbon that I already had. I also like to use thick grosgrain ribbon.

Cut your ribbon to the preferred length and singe both ends with the lighter. This prevents any fraying.

Fold the end over the keyring and hot glue it down. Next hot glue the other end of the ribbon to the back of the wood piece.

That’s it! Just hang it on a thumb tack on the wall in the girls’ room. Place all your hair pins by clipping them on the ribbon. It’s functional and pretty! These also make wonderful gifts.

It’s easy access and you have a way to store these accessories so they have a proper place. My girls like to choose the ones they want to wear to coordinate with their outfits.

You can create longer or shorter holders. It’s your preference! The great thing is that they don’t take any space in drawers. Hope you found this simple DIY helpful!

In my Father’s house are many rooms; if it were not so, I would have told you. I am going there to prepare a place for you. And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come back and take you to be with me that you also may be where I am. You know the way to the place where I am going.” John 14:2-4
