I have to admit, after having Memorial Day off, it’s been hard to get back into a schedule this week. You mean we have to go to work and school after Monday? We don’t get to play the whole week? I made some recipes I wanted to blog about and then a few things got in the way of them actually making it on the blog! I pulled out my popsicles before they were ready. Do not do this. It’s very disheartening. Then, I was trying to photograph bread minutes before my dinner guests arrived. Again, do not do this. It stresses your family out when they can’t eat the appetizer, BECAAAAUSE I have to photograph it. SO. I will be sharing something else today. Don’t worry it’s cute.
My friend, Heather, asked me to pick up a stick for her the last time I was on a stick-collecting mission. She was going to be making a bow-holder for her girls’ hair accessories. I was looking for big straight sticks for the tent I was trying to create. I picked up a cute little stick and handed it off to her the next time I was running by her house. The last time I was there she showed me the finished product. It’s the perfect addition to her girls’ room!
Her directions are: Paint stripes on the stick with acrylic paint in various colors and widths. Leave some of the wood showing. Tie pieces of fabric or ribbon on the stick to clips the barrettes to. Lastly, tie a piece of twine to both ends and hang on a nail or the edge of a frame (as shown).
What a fun way to display hair accessories and an easy way for the girls to grab them on their own and easily put them away!
