Make a DIY Hair Accessory Holder From Paper Rolls

8 Materials

If you're a girl, you probably have a ton of hair accessories cluttering up the drawers. We're talking barrettes, pony tail holders, head bands, brushes, combs, hair bows and bobby pins.

Well, in this super easy tutorial, you'll learn how to make your own DIY Hair Accessory Holder from PAPER ROLLS. In honor of getting back to school, we're getting organized.

Watch the video above to learn how to make your own DIY Hair Accessory Holder OR you could always read the step by step guide below.

Paint the base of your DIY hair accessory holder with White Acrylic Paint. We used a 6" wood circle base from Hobby Lobby.

PRODUCTION TIP: To prevent the organizer from tipping over, you'll need something sturdy to support the weight of the items you put inside the paper roll tubes.

Start by wrapping each empty paper roll in scrapbook paper. We used two tall paper towel rolls for the back row, three small toilet paper rolls for the middle row and one toilet paper roll for the front row.

PRODUCTION TIP: When selecting scrapbook paper, try to alternate patterns and colors. In other words, if you have a piece of paper that has fine polka dots on light colored paper, pair it with a bright bold patterned paper for extra contrast.

Line up the bottom of the toilet paper roll with the bottom edge of the paper and begin applying Mod Podge in small sections as you go. Watch the video for details.

Repeat the previous step on three small toilet paper rolls. These will become the middle row of the organizer.

PRODUCTION TIP: When you have excess paper hanging over the end of the tube. Make two small slits in the end and tuck them on the inside of the paper roll.

Now to make the small, front row tubes. Cut one toilet paper roll in half using a diagonal cut, then wrap those in scrapbook paper.

Hot glue all six tubes onto the wood base. Apply a small amount of hot glue to the bottoms of each tube and press onto the White base.

PRODUCTION TIP: We hot glued our tall rolls for the back row first and purposely spaced them apart so we could string our pony tail holders over them. Then we did the middle row and the front row last.

Because our DIY hair accessory holder was going to be in the bathroom and possible exposed to moisture, we coated the entire holder with Outdoor Mod Podge.

THAT'S IT! Have fun and get creative.
