Framed! DIY Hair Accessory Storage

Hair Accessory Stand

Look what I made!  I made myself a jewellery display stand in the Xmas holidays, and I use it every day to store and display favourite pieces.

I decided my next project should be a DIY hair acessories storage solution to store and display my favourite hair accessories.  They’re so pretty that it seems a shame to keep them in a box.

I started with a utilitarian (read ugly) corkboard from Officeworks.  It cost about $10.

The next step for my DIY hair accessories storage project was choosing some pretty ribbon from my sewing box to disguise the less than attractive plastic frame, and attaching it.  I used some sticky tape to hold it in place whilst I was working out the placement, and my hot glue gun to affix the ribbon more firmly.

The final step was attaching some pretty elastic and arranging the push pins to hold some of my favourite hair accessories.

15 minutes or so later and voila!  I’ve got the perfect spot on the wall of my teeny tiny walk in wardrobe to hang this little pretty.

I would love to hear how you store your accessories.  Do you think you’d give this a go?

    […]  I’d love to know how you organise your accessories storage.  Would a DIY jewellery stand work for you?  I was on a crafting / organising high following this, and made myself a bigger version for DIY hair accessories storage. […]ReplyCancel

    I love this! And the possibilities are so endless too. xReplyCancel

      Thanks, Amy. I literally made it with the stuff I had in my sewing box, plus the notice board. The elastic worked really well to keep the clips on. Because you stretch it a little when putting it on, it stays relatively taut when weighing it down with all the clips.

      I’m currently storing my headbands on a plate rack suspended on the back of my bathroom door but I need a better solution. Any ideas?!ReplyCancel

      Yes, I made one of those at Xmas time on a much smaller scale.  I use it to workshop jewellery for outfits and for displaying my favourite pieces.  I used a baroque frame from IKEA and cork coasters!ReplyCancel

    That look fabulous!  I did a similar thing for the kids rooms – bought the big pieces of pin up board stuff from Bunnings and covered it in fabric to match their bedrooms.  They use it to pin up special things, reminders and they also hang their jewellery off it too.  All of my pretties are hanging directly on my bathroom wall off push pins!!  I love how it looks and it keeps them neat and easily visual to make my daily pick!!ReplyCancel

      Ah, I forgot about that board stuff from Bunnings.  That will be my next project – I just need to haunt the Rozelle Markets for some gorgeous vintage frames and then cut some board to shape.  I have piles of pretty fabric just waiting to be stretched over board.  I contemplated using polystyrene packaging.  I think they’d make awesome gifts xReplyCancel
