Day 18. I'm Thankful with Lyssa Beth


Hey folks!  I hope you are enjoying I'm Thankful Week so far!  Today we have Lyssa here to tell you what she is thankful for.  I met Lyssa last year and she is always so kind and thoughtful.  

Hi guys!  My name is Lyssa Beth.  You can find me over HERE where I blog about my life as a mom, photographer, crafter, and organizer in the making.
I am so so excited to be part of Thankful Week over here with Jenn.  
I was lucky enough to meet and craft next to Jenn last year.  She's so genuine and kind!  It's just fun to be here and share with you something I made:)

So today, I am thankful for organization!
Can you imagine life without it?!  I can!  I've been there!
I am an infant hoarder with a love for garage sales and thrift store.  There is always something to be organized at my house!
Today, i'm tackling my headbands.  

I love to make these babies but how do you store them!?
Like this:


Fun huh?!  Well it's pretty simple but the end result goes a long way!

First you start with an oatmeal bin, some paper and a old candle holder:

Found this baby for a quarter at the local thrift store:



You add scrapbook paper around the oatmeal bin and you can even add fun embellishments like so: (did that with my fun ecraft machine...have you heard of it?  if not, check it out!)



Inside, you can even store other things that can't be hung or stuck on something.


Wha-la!  How easy is this?  But I love how it looks.  Very feminine and useful :)


Thanks again for stopping by and letting me share this fun idea with you over here at Ruffled Sunshine.  And Thanks Jenn for having me!

Thanks Lyssa.  Someday Ivy might wear something in her hair besides the once in a blue moon pontyail  so I will have to remember this idea for that day!

  3. I love this idea but when I tried it none of my cans were wide enough for my daughter's headbands. Suggestions?

    1. Take a couple headbands to the store with you and try them on coffee cans or the large school lunchroom size cans.

    Sorry for the predicament! Try to find the biggest oatmeal can you can. Maybe you can add ridges or something to hold the headbands up so they don't fall down?

    Maybe try hot glueing inexpensive foam around it to make it bigger and that way the headbands can create little grooves to get a better grip. Then you can just hot glue your favorite fabric around to create the pretty design. Little more work and you'll need a glue gun, but still a super cute crafty project!

  10. How do you attach the bin to the candle holder? Just hot glue? Same question for the paper around the bin? Hot glue, or something else? :)

  11. @Rachel,
    I just taped the paper onto the bin and then I just hot glued the bin onto the candle holder :)

  12. A roll of paper towels covered in fabric is a perfect width and alternative to the can.

  15. This is great! I want to make one...but now my next question is how do you make those stunning headbands?

    ReplyDelete
  16. Very cute idea! I was thinking, if you covered it in velvet or velour fabric, it would keep the headbands from falling down, too! Love the idea of storage inside, too!

  17. You could put batting around the can; and then fabric to help with those larger headbands staying in place.

    This is a great idea! I used tall baby formula cans from Sam's Club on a pedestal I found at the my local dollar store. It clears up my bathroom countertops so nicely! I love it!

  22. I just made 20 headbands for my soon-to-arrive granddaughter and was wondering how my daughter could store them without them getting crushed -- this was perfect timing!! I'll be taking a trip to Goodwill this evening to find some candle holders!! Thanks for the idea -- it's fantastic!

  23. What a great idea! You are so clever. I have a crafts show coming up in September, and I've been trying to think of a good way to showcase my crochet-flower headbands. Now I know exactly what to do. Thanks!

  27. great idea--I'm making this for my granddaughters and I think I'll add clear contact over the paper to somewhat "waterproof" it since it will be in the bathroom :)
