THE DECORISTA CHRONICLES // PRETTY DIY HAIRBAND STORAGE

This is so simple, it's one of those out-of-nowhere-this-is-so-obvious plus self explanatory DIYS:

Materials:


1.A smaller jar or bottle, that acts as the vertical part of the "T" (I used a Caesar juice jar, which is pretty similar to a Starbucks frappe bottle I think) WITH the cap on.

2. A larger bottle with a long slender neck to act as the horizontal part of the "T"

3.A heavy plate or tray as the base (optional)

4.Supplies to decorate, (my choice, glitter cuz duh, and some pink acrylic paint just to add a pop of color.)

5.Modpodge (or white Elmer's school glue) ,Hot glue gun, scissors, stick-on gems etc.

How-To:


1.I started by coating the plate and long, slender bottle in modpodge and sprinkling on loads of glitter (with newspapers underneath). As soon as I was done with the first coat, I took all the glitter fall out on the newspaper with which I refilled my sprinkling container and waited until my dish and bottle dried to sprinkle glitter with another glue coat again. Finish off with a last sealing coat of glue so that the glitter doesn't come off. Ever. ^_^

2.Meanwhile, alternatively while the glitter dried, I did two-three coats of the pink acrylic on the smaller bottle and doodled on top of it since it added a pretty handmade touch.

3.Hot glue the smaller bottle bang in the center of the heavy dish and on the rim of this bottle's cap-generously use hot glue and press on the tall bottle horizontally for a few minutes making sure it's set. Forever. ^_^

4.Give finishing touches. I glued on gold ribbon to the ends of the horizontal part and used a trail of stick-on gold gems as "stoppers" at the ends (of the horizontal part again) so that the hairbands don't slip and fall off the edge.

ALTERNATIVELY: You can also use a dowel and a candlestick, orrrr, again maybe an empty aluminum tube. I just improvised with what I had at hand. ;)

And voila, what did I say. Sheer fabulous-ness.

    I really love your blog, where do you get the roses for your graphics from? They're so pretty!

  2. Thanks Cat! They are paper roses which I manipulated in Photoshop to give a more handdrawn/doodly feel. Other times, I draw the roses myself. :)
