Headband Holder

I wasn’t going to enter this round of iron crafter – it was a tricky secret ingredient.  But then I saw the prize – a Flirty Apron!  I would LOVE to win that!  And so I came up with a project – I thought it was “knobs/pulls” when I made my project, but it’s really “hinges/knobs” – hope this works.

Anyways, as you can see, I made a headband holder.  Headbands drive me crazy the way they take up so much room in a drawer.  So they just get put various places (so much so that I can’t locate a lot right now – oh well, they’ll turn up).  So I thought a drawer pull was a great solution, and the knob holds the elastic headbands.  I made it to coordinate with the Hairbow Holder I made a while ago.

First I painted the edge of my board, with a little board on the front.

Then I smeared on mod podge and stuck down my paper.

When it was dry I sanded the edges of the paper for a more finished look.  This is why you need to paint a white border on the top.

Then mod podge over the top to seal it all.  This is the technique we used when we made the Decorative Letters.

Next, poor-man’s lettering.  Since I don’t have any sort of machine that will cut letters, vinyl or otherwise, I have to improvise.  I printed the lettering out and then set it on top of my board.  Then I traced over it, pushing really hard with something blunt.  That leaves groves on the board.

Then I just followed the grooves with my permanent marker.  I referenced the printed-out lettering to see where to make the letters fatter, etc.  It’s not perfect, but it works.

To attach the handle I had my helpful hubby drill the holes in the board.  Then just screw them on through the holes.  And that’s it.

And here’s the in-use action shot (if only I could find our plethora of headbands for a great picture – oh well)

    I have been wanting to come up with something for ages for all the headbands (I already stole your button headband idea–heehee), but I didn’t think of using a drawer pull—great idea!!! I am So going to make one of these…or three. Also love how you did the lettering–I thought it looked real and was thinking “op now I gotta call my vinyl lady” gonna have to try your way on this too!

    Trendy treehouse sent me over here and I cant even begin to tell you what a GENIUS idea this is! I love head bands they can fix any bad hair day but they take up wayyy to much space. Hopefully I’ll be able to make one of these soon!
