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
HOW TO MAKE IT
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
EASY AND EXTREMELY ECONOMICAL ! WASN'T IT .... ENJOY :)
