Headband Holder

This is such an easy and cute solution to one of my biggest problems: Too many headbands and nowhere to put them! 

It just takes two easy steps and three materials!

All you need is:

  • Large empty oatmeal can
  • 2 pieces of 12 x 12 scrapbook paper
  • Hot glue or super glue! 

Cut the paper to fit your oatmeal can and then wrap it around. Glue along the seam. Make sure you put the seam towards the back so you wont see it, so plan your pattern accordingly. 


  • Keep the paper taut as you go along and glue occasionally to keep it tight. 
  • I also stuffed mine with some newspaper just to give some weight to the can so its easier to hold and so it won't fall over too easily. 
  • Finally, get the paper as close to the lid and bottom as possible. As you may have noticed, I missed a little bit at the top and depending on where you put it (mine is on an eye level shelf) you can see a little bit of the can poking through. 
But overall it looks great! 

Look how practical! 
Sadly, I now have twice this many headbands so I need to make another one!

Now go make one! Now!


  1. This is a REALLY great idea!!!! I have so many headbands that just get all tangled. I will have to hurry up and eat all our oatmeal so I can make me one of these :) Thanks for the idea!
