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)
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.
Clap your hands and marvel at your pretty creation!
Display ’em your hair clips!
