So here I give you the Oatmeal box headband holder! Woohoo! Do you think they would re-name my product if HSN wanted to sell it?
Start with a box of oatmeal. You might want to empty it first.
Pick up one of those candle holder looking pieces of wood from Michaels or other craft store.
Now glue it onto the bottom. See the expiration date? I’m so embarrassed.
Next I took some fabric, it’s kind of a burlap but much softer and thinner. I had to wrap it twice because the box showed through. I used spray adhesive to put the fabric on. I also left the top and bottom edges a little long to wrap under the bottom lip and over the top opening.
Now you can glue the decorative block to your base. I just got a circular wood base and used my E6000 epoxy.
I embellished using just a strip of bias tape. I thought about doing some more fancy stuff but the fact is, it will have a bunch of headbands on it anyhow.
I finished it off with a little bow on the back seam.
And here is the finish! I thought about putting the lid back on but it will be easier for my girls to get their bows without it. And I chose to leave the bottom natural wood instead of painting.
