Hair Clip Display Board

If you don’t know how to organize your ever-growing number of hair clips, then let me come to the rescue.  Let’s make an easy DIY hair clip display board! I made one for a bazaar back in May to display my hair clips which came out pretty nice.  


What you’ll need:

cork board (I got mine from Ikea)
fabric (from Ikea too)
thumb tacks
1 inch ribbon (printed or plain)
pair of scissors


Ooops! The ribbon isn’t in the picture!

What to do:

1. Measure the size of the cork board and add about 1.5 inches all around. That will be the size of your fabric.
2. Cut fabric (measurement refer to #1).
3. Put the fabric over the cork board, fold the fabric to the back (double fold the edges to avoid fraying) and secure with thumb tacks every 3 inches or so.
Here’s how it looked at the back:


But the front is a beauty:

At this point, you can use it as a wall decor or a memo board (remember, it’s originally a cork board!)

The ribbons will be placed vertically along the narrow side of the cork board.  Mine measures 15.5 inches.  So I cut my ribbons to 17 inches.

4. Cut 5 ribbon lengths, heat seal the ends to prevent from fraying and place on top of the board.  Secure it with a glue gun at the back of the board or pin with thumb tacks.

What’s next?

Clap your hands and marvel at your pretty creation!

Display ’em your hair clips!

  1. wow, thanks! i love this idea, i do not have a lot of hairclips, but i do have a lot of blings, now i know how to arrange all my fancy earrings, instead of ribbon maybe i can use chain so i can hook the earrings. and turned out to be a very good wall decor too 🙂

    • you’re welcome. wow! love your idea using chains! or you can put tulle over the fabric and hang your dangling earrings on the holes (that’s what i did with mine). 🙂
