Hair Clip and Headband Holder ~ and a tour of Smiley's bedroom

I was tired of finding little clips and headbands throughout my house and recalled seeing an empty frame with ribbons attached to it used to hold little hair clip.

So the search began for an inexpensive frame.

I know there are lots of versions of these floating around the internet, but I had to show you my version.

I started with a frame.  Chipped, cracked and inexpensive.





Then, I found my handy dandy spray paint and primed and painted (dover white to be exact). Once that was dry I did a little sanding.



Added some cup hooks ~ for the headbands.



Measured out my layout for my ribbon and hot glued it on.



Once the ribbon was glued on it looked like this:


Hung it up,  clipped on some of Smiley's pretties, hung up her headbands and VOILA:







And since we are already in Smiley's room, here is a little tour:



(ah, the diaper genie ~ a design must)



(designed and hand painted by Jen from Hope Studios)



(personally, I think the crib model is pretty cute)


Well, that's it for today ~ have a great one!



and don't forget to go here for a little inspiration:

What a beautiful baby room! And I agree - your crib model is too sweet for words! I had seen a similar idea for the ribbon/clippie holder and was contemplating one for my boutique items... you have totally sold me on the idea now! thanks for sharing :)
