I may have mentioned in the past that the girls and I are a pretty hairy bunch. Yes, we all have rather long locks and keeping them in place requires a lot of hair accessories!
I used to just keep everything in a basket, but we could never easily find what we wanted - especially when we had about two seconds to locate it before we had to rush out the door to get to school. So, to avoid hair accessory chaos on busy mornings, I devised a simple way to store and display them. All you need is some ribbon (I used satin, but I've found that grosgrain works even better), a bit of glue, and a few thumbtacks. This is so easy, you won't believe it...just cut a length of ribbon to suite the size of your accessory collection, fold over the ends and glue (this is more for appearance than function), and thumbtack your ribbon to an easily accessible place (we have ours tacked on the side of a built-in bookcase in our kitchen).
Then just clip away!
I made one for our flower-type clips...
And one for our rhinestone bobby pins...
The hair accessories look so pretty gathered together as a collection and now the girls can quickly find what they need!
I have seen expensive hair accessory/bow organizers for sale in children's boutiques, but why waste the money? This costs just pennies to make and works just as well!
