Once one of my teen-age sons accompanied me to a teacher supply store. The next thing I knew, he was sitting on a bench outside. When I asked him why he left, he said, “Mom! It looks like a rainbow threw up in there!” So, if you’ve ever felt the same way, it’s probably best to move on to another blog now. 🙂
Today’s project is a fabric memo board . . . but for holding girly hair things, like:
- lace bow headbands,
- and button hairbands.
Click here for a tutorial (starting with a cardboard box!) and here for a photo of the zebra-print version filled with flower hair clips and pins. I can’t wait to give this one to a special little girl for her birthday! ♥
all is so girly…very cute…~mkg
Thank you, Marilyn! 🙂
What a fun project. I should make one to store all my hairclips 🙂
They’re super easy! And you can make them any size from tiny to giant, depending on the cardboard you have available. Have fun with yours! 🙂
I love it, I might have to make one for my office to add color. Great job
Thank you! Have fun with yours . . . can’t wait to see it! 🙂
Oh you got to see this idea
I wish i knew that when jacob was a baby lol
When he was 10 Boy#4 delivered papers downtown and once he came out of the boutique with his eyes closed. I asked what had happened and he said “I think pink threw up in there.” Ha!
That’s funny! Your Boy #4 and my Boy #1 must be kindred spirits! 🙂
love the colourful fabric 🙂
Thank you! Now I’ve made a pillow with the leftover bit . . . post to come! 🙂
I think your son has a great way of expressing himself. Cute idea. By the way, I do have about 5 blog posts floating around in my brain and a couple in draft, in case you wondered where I went. 🙂
Yes, I’ve missed you! 🙂 And yes, my sons always kept (and still keep!) me laughing! 🙂
Ha ha – The other day my teenage son said to his twin sister (after she put on perfume), “Your room smells like a hundred butterflies pooped a thousand rainbows.” Aren’t kids the best?
I LOVE that! So creative! What would we do without them to make us laugh! 🙂
How cute is that… My daughter would love something like this… I’m putting it on my to do list…
Yay! Can’t wait to see yours . . . and you’re right . . . she’ll love it! 🙂
This is so cute! I am definitely going to do a version of this when we re-do my daughter’s room.
It’s so fun and easy and adaptable to any size or fabric or ribbon configuration. I can’t wait to see yours! 🙂
