I let the paint dry and layed the frame down and measured the sides of it. The important thing to note is that this frame will hang horizontally, NOT vertically. So measure the sides of the frame that will be lined vertically to be sure that your ribbon will run horizontally. Decide how many ribbons you can fit on your frame, keeping them about 2-3 inches apart and mark where the ribbon will be.
With a hot glue gun, I glued each piece of ribbon to the spots I had measured out. The ribbons need to be glued in the horizontal direction. This is the only way to make the headbands stay on. Remember, glue the the ribbon so that the right sides are facing the front of the frame!
I also glued 2 extra pieces of ribbon to each side to be sure that my ribbons are sturdy.
Now this is what my frame looks like! I need to glam it up though! You can leave it like this if you want, but I had to accessorize!
I made 2 rolled fabric flowers. If you don’t know how to make these, there is a pretty helpful tutorial made by Me and My Brightsides, here.
Then, I got some feathers, and some petals from a silk flower.
And I embellished my flower, and arranged them on my frame. I just used hot glue again, and put them all on my frame like so.
I create a lot of “Hippie Headbands” and there really isn’t any way to store them unless you stuff them into a box and then they get squished! So I decided I would hang them up with clothes pins. I made 3 lined clothes pins for my frame. I cut out ribbon that would go around one side of each clothes pin.
Then I hot glued the ribbon to the clothes pin and folded the ribbon over and glued it too so you couldn’t see the unfinished edges of the ribbon.
Now I have 3 super cute clothes pins!
I attached my clothes pins and now I am done! But I seem to be missing something…
My hair accessories! I love this because I can also comb my combs onto the ribbon because the ribbon is horizontal. I clipped my hippie headbands on my clothes pins, clipped my regular clips on the ribbon, and put my headbands over the ribbons! Now all of my feathers won’t get ruined!
I hope you enjoyed this tutorial as much as I enjoyed making this project! Look for more tutorials coming your way and don’t forget to check out my hair accessories so that you can fill up your new Headband and Accessory Holder!
