Clippie Holders

Both of my girls were born with LOTS of hair so hair clips made an early entry in to our lives and we have an ever growing collection of them.  I've been looking for a cute way to display some of them so we can see them all clearly and came up with this in the weekend...


They were super easy to make from items I already had in my craft supplies.  I purchased two basic 8x10 frames (although you could re-purpose any old frames you have lying round) and spray painted them with some paint I already had.



While the frames were drying I covered the foam backing boards that came with the frames with fabric.  I used a adhesive spray glue which was ideal.  It's a really tacky glue which gives you a few moments to reposition your fabric or push out any crinkles or bubbles before it sets.  And the spray is really fine so the glue doesn't come through the fabric and stain or make it wet.

The fabrics I used were all left over scraps - the stripe fabric was left over upholstery fabric from the roman blinds in Maisie's room and the floral/bird print was a piece of a fat quarter.



Next I hot glued three pieces of ribbon to each of the boards for the clips to attach to.  By this time the frames were dry so I could it all back together and they were all done.

The pink one is for Madeline and the yellow one is for Maisie.  I love them both but I think Maisie's is super cute - I have a thing about yellow at the moment.



And here they are on the girls dressing tables (excuse the empty photo frame - I'm getting round to that).



It's such an easy way to keep their pretty clips and bows in one place and to choose from each morning while also adding a bright pop of colour to their rooms.  It would make a super sweet birthday present for a special little girlie too.
