Organize your child’s headbands (or your own headbands) using this DIY Headband Holder. It’s simple and inexpensive to make.
If you use oatmeal often for breakfast or baking, then you’ll love this craft project because you’ll repurpose an oatmeal container. This is not the first time I’ve repurposed an item for a DIY project. I often repurpose jars. An oatmeal container is a nice change. (I originally saw this headband holder project on Ain’t She Crazy.)
I noticed one day my daughter had her own unique way of storing her headbands. She placed them on her bed’s footboard. I think it’s a creative solution. I really don’t mind the headbands staying there except for the times I have to change her bed sheets.
I suggested we make a cute headband holder. This got her excited. My other daughter wanted to make one as well.
The materials to make this headband holder are an oatmeal container (the big one, 42oz. size), two 12×12 scrapbook papers, Mod Podge, paint brush and scissors.

I first cut the two scrapbook papers to be the same height as the oatmeal container. Note: One 12×12 scrapbook paper is not big enough to wrap around the oatmeal container which is why you’ll need two sheets of paper.
I applied Mod Podge on the back of the first scrapbook paper. I placed the paper onto the oatmeal container carefully and smoothed it out. I then applied Mod Podge on the back of the second scrapbook paper. I placed the paper onto the oatmeal container carefully and smoothed it out. I waited 15 minutes for it to dry.
I applied a thin coat of Mod Podge on the top of the paper and waited 15 minutes for it to dry. I then put a final coat of Mod Podge.
I traced a circle on scrapbook paper around the oatmeal container’s lid. I adhered the circle to the top of the lid using Mod Podge. I also applied a thin coat of Mod Podge on the top of the lid’s paper.
Now, my both my daughter’s headbands are organized and displayed nicely. As a bonus, you can also store other hair accessories inside the headband holder.
