Make a Cute Kid’s Barrette Holder
A friend bought my daughter some adorable barrettes and loved the holder so much she got it, too. It was adorable but didn’t match Dot’s bedroom decor, so we decided to make one of our own. The craft store has tons of little wooden shapes to choose from, and we picked a spiral to go with the “dot” theme in her room.
To make this barrette holder craft, you will need:
- Wooden shape
- Paint and paintbrush
- Hot glue
- Buttons or other decorations
Supplies to make a barrette holder craft.
Paint the wooden design to match the decor of the room where you'll hang it.
Cut a ribbon to length. We went with 35", but you can do whatever works for the space.
I have learned that when using the narrow ribbon, it’s very helpful to tie a knot in the end to avoid fraying.
Decorate the wooden design. We've been using these colored buttons all over Dot's room, so it ties it in to the overall decor.
Glue the top of the ribbon into a loop.
Add hot glue to the back so the ribbon lays flat for your barrette holder.
Hang it up in your room, and clip your cutie's barrettes to it.
What I Learned the Hard Way: The original used a much wider ribbon, and I think that was a better choice for lying flat against the wall.
