tutorial Tuesday: Barrette Holder

Little Peachy, like most two year old girls, has a lot of barrettes. Up until now, I stored those barrettes in a little basket in her room. While that worked for the most part, there were always barrettes getting lost in the bottom that I had forgotten about. I decided it was time to make a new barrette holder that would display all of the barrettes and serve as a decoration for her "new" room.
I started with an old picture frame I had laying around which I spray painted white. I then covered the glass with some fabric that I had in my stash. On top of the fabric, I glued strips of ribbon going from the back side of glass at the top to the back side of glass at the bottom. (Guess what? I also had all of this ribbon on hand. Do you sense a theme??) Then all that I needed to do was put the glass back into the frame and I had not only a new barrette holder, but also some new art for Peachy's room.
All those barrettes for one little girl!!
PS I took the first picture outside, but since it was so hot and humid I had to wait for the camera to de-fog first. I decided to just take the second one inside.

I LOVE this!
I linked a post to some rose hair clips that I made on the Get Your Craft On! linky last week!
This would be a great way to store and display them in my little girls room!
Thanks for the inspiration.

Very cute! I made one for my two girls's hair clippies. I had to spray paint my frame black though to match the rest of the frames in my kiddos' bathroom.

Cute bow holder! I love the bright colors! I wish I had a girl so I could make one...although my friend is having a girl, so I might just have to make her one!
