I love to use accessories for my hair because I hate it in my face, so you will usually find me with a headband or clip in my hair. I was using a shelf divider and a couple of shoe boxes to currently house these items. The organization of these accessories has become unruly in my closet.
It is so messy and makes finding anything a chore. I needed a new solution, so I came up with a plan...
...a Lace Frame Accessory Holder. I was inspired by this. This allows me to easily see everything and to have a pretty display that I can choose from.
I started with this open frame that was on sale at Hobby Lobby.
Supplies for this project:
- open frame
- staple gun and staples
- various lace (I used a yard of emerald lace I already had and bought some stretchy ivory lace ribbon)
- needle and thread
First I cut three pieces of the ivory lace ribbon.
Then I stapled the first piece to the back of the frame.
Then I stapled the other two pieces.
Here you can see the detail of the double row staples, so I could make sure it wouldn't break when that piece was streached.
Next, I cut down a piece of the emerald lace.
Then, I attached a lace panel to the back with more nail gun action.
Here you can see the detail of the staples on the back.
I wanted to make the three lace ribbon on the front more secure, so I hand sewed areas so that the lace ribbon could stay in place and not sag due to the weight of the items I place on it.
I stitched the first ivory lace ribbon to the emerald lace panel.
Then I stitched the other two ribbon.
Now the fun part was going through my collection and picking a spot for each accessory. It really also allowed me to clean out stuff that I don't need anymore.
It fits perfectly.
Voila! All my pretty hair things displayed!
