My oldest daughter is 7 and she has a lot of hair accessories. Prior to making today’s project, the bathroom drawer we keep the hair stuff in drove me CRAZY!!! It was such a mess…when I saw this pin, I had yet another “why didn’t I think of that?!” moment. I loved the idea, but we really don’t use oatmeal so I didn’t think I’d be getting to it any time soon.
Well, my coffee ran out this morning, and I had an aha! moment as I was about to throw it away. Use it for the hair goodies canister!! Perfect! This size works for us because she doesn’t have any hard headbands, so we didn’t need to put them around the can. The can might be too big for that. I gathered my supplies :
Did you notice the lid on the coffee can? My husband did that…he is so dang adorable! Anyway, I used two 12×12 pieces of scrapbook paper, one for the lid and one around the can. I peeled the label off and used it to cut the paper to the right size. Then I just glued it to the can. I used the lid to trace the diameter for the paper on the lid and glued it on as well. It looks so cute!
