Not only is this a great project to help your kids keep track of their stuff, it’s also good for the environment – you’re recycling!
Here’s what you’ll need:
- a large oatmeal can
- scrapbooking paper
- coordinating ribbon
- mod podge
- foam brush
- hot glue gun
You’ll need two or more pieces depending on the size of paper you are using. Working in small sections, apply mod podge to your can and adhere the paper down. When the first sheet is fully adhered, cut a second piece of paper the height of the can and about 2 inches wider than the gap you have left. Mod podge that down as well.
For the bottom, take a pair of scissors and trim the paper flush to the bottom of the can.
See how the top is uneven too? A little bit of ribbon will cover that and add a cute decorative flair to our headband holder.
Attach it to the top edge of your can, below the plastic lip. Run a line of glue down the ribbon and attach that to the can, working in small sections so the glue doesn’t harden.
Now, do the same on the bottom edge of your oatmeal can.
Place the paper down on the scrapbook paper, and trace around it.
Run some hot glue along the inside of the plastic lid rim, and pop your new lid inside!
Covers the perfect compartment for extra hair bows or brushes!
I hope you enjoy making this!
