This easy DIY hair accessory wreath is the answer to your organization problems.
If you have a daughter, you understand the battle of the hair accessories. It is almost impossible to find a storage container that can accommodate hair bows, headbands and barrettes. If you do find a container, you have to dig to find the right accessory. It can be very frustrating, especially, if you are having one of those rushed mornings before school.
One day, I saw a slinky and thought about wrapping it around something to create a wreath. I went out to our garage and saw some pipe wrap and knew a fun idea was coming together.
I didn’t want to wrap the slinky around the gray foam. So, I decided to wrap the foam in duct tape. I then wrapped it in three slinkies and put together a super fun and easy DIY hair accessory wreath.
DIY Hair Accessory Wreath Instructions
- 3 slinkies
- Duct tape
- Pipe wrap (the kind you use to cover your pipes to keep them warm) or a pool noodle
- Clear plastic ponytail bands
- Insert a support into the pipe wrap. You can use folded paper towel tubes or empty toilet paper rolls.
- Cover the pipe wrap with duct tape. Start at the top, securing the two ends together.
- Once the wreath is covered with tape, take the slinkies and wind them around the wreath.
- Take the clear plastic bands and join the ends of the slinkies together as you spread them around the wreath.
- Take several tacks and stick them around the back of the wreath to secure the slinkies in place.
- Take a strip of duct tape and tape it to itself. Secure it to the back of the wreath with a tack. (You will use this to hang the wreath on the wall.)
- Attach your hair bows and headbands.
I love to make crafts with common household items, especially duct tape. Not only is it inexpensive, it is so much fun to make something amazing out of something ordinary.
