DIY Hair Accessory Station for Organization | Recycling Tin Cans

If you have a little girl, you must have tons of hair accessories. My 5-year-old daughter Maia has so many,  it was getting harder and harder to find anything! I finally gave up and just started pilling everything in a basket. 😒

Messy right?!

I had seen so many different ways on Pinterest to organize hairbands so I thought I should do the same. Jessica from Mom 4 Real was where I first saw the idea. Thanks for the inspiration, Jessica! So here are a few pics of the steps I took.

For this project, I used modgepodge, empty tin cans, pretty card stock, foam brush, hot glue gun, and ribbon.

First I cut the length of the paper to the right size, then applied the glue to the back and then the front of the paper.

I then let the modgepodge completely dry overnight.

To pretty the cans up a little more, I trimmed the edges with ribbon and added a bow to the front to cover up the seem.

To finish it off, I added paper to the inside of the can and just used hot glue to secure the top edge in place.

One of the small cans is for the hair elastics, another is for combs and brushes, and the big can is for the hair bands. The top of the cans is perfect clipping the hair clips too.

And here is what it looks like with all the hair accessories organized. No more mess... well at least not yet!
