make a hair accessory holder

Nearly all of us just love to collect hair accessories and some blogs are also teaching us how to make some really cool bands and clips etc. but collecting and making these accessories is one thing and to keep them safe in one place is another and then again to find our desired hair bow or clip at a certain time is the toughest job in the world specially when you have kids around you :)
so i decided to make a simple hair accessory holder for me and my elder daughter that we can hang out of the reach of our 2 years old girl


To make this beautiful yet simple braid all you need is some Yarn in the color of your choice (round about 5 to 6 ounces )

join the backs of two chairs and start wrapping the yarn around them until u get the desired thickness

now cut the big loop from one side and remove it from the back of chairs .

Start wrapping the middle part with the yarn in order to make a loop for hanging the braid.

To complete the loop join the two ends together and wrap again .

make a simple Braid with the remaining length of the yarn and secure it just the way the upper hanging loop was done, round about 6 inches long strands should be left to hang ,trim the edges.

Add your clips, bands, bows what ever you have and hang the braid any where you like

TIP: You will never believe me when i tell you that what this braid is made up of, this white yarn is taken from an old used water filter cartage which I opened to gathered the cotton yarn spun over it . i kept the yarn ball with me so that i can use it in some creative project that may pop up into my head any time .......and now its in front of you



  1. Now THAT is an awesome idea. You could also use it to teach younger kids how to braid. I can think of tons of ideas for its use in a classroom. Thanks for the tip!

  2. What a cute idea. I love to braid and it looks like something I can do. Love the colors.

  3. Great idea! Stopping by to say hi from SITS! Enjoy your day!

    This is a cute idea, I have a different one we are using right now, but I don't love it. I love how this looks like hair and I could customize it to match her hair color....

  5. So cute! I love this idea.
    Came over from SITS.
