Cute Hair Clip Holder

Pin It I've been trying to think of a cute way to store all of my daughter's hair clips.  I eventually came up with this:

I started with a piece of wood I found at Walmart for 97 cents.

I drew a little face of the wood.

Then using my acrylic paints, I painted the face - don't worry she looks better with hair.

For the hair, I used brown yarn: $2.50 at Walmart.  I used a hot glue gun and attached each strand of yarn individually so I would get a nice part.  Before I started to braid the hair, I used some green ribbon I had on hand to tie the yarn together.

I braided the yarn and tied the ends with the green ribbon.

Then she was ready for the clips!

All the supplies I purchased only cost me about $3.50 since I had most of the other supplies on hand.  I'm pretty pleased with her and am happy that I won't have all these clips just sitting in a bag getting mushed.
