It was only a few months ago that my daughter started sprouting hair. Calling it actual “hair” might have been generous at the time. Tiny buds of fuzz were poking through her scalp like the optimistic greens of spring.
I did what any reasonable mother would do at seeing those first follicles: I went shopping for adorable hair bobbles. Clips, clamps, pins, bands, bows — it was like a child beauty pageant dressing room had thrown up into my daughter’s room.
It was clear I needed a tidy place to display and store the chaos of little girl hair accessories.
My criteria are:
Must be able to see our accessory stash at a glance.
Boxes/drawers were are an option —– drawers and shelves are valuable storage spaces, and not to be messed with.
Must be cute.
I don’t want to make it. I don’t do crafting.
Taking a look at some of my options left me with an alarming conclusion: a DIY-solution was my only option. One problem: I don't DO crafting. I'm no Sarah Gunn.
So, I fashioned this easy solution for the crafting impaired.
STEP 1: BUY A HANGING SHOWER ORGANIZER
This is a great option from the Dollar Store.
STEP 2: BUY APPROPRIATE HOOK FOR HANGING SAID SHOWER ORGANIZER
The Dollar Store has loads of styles, and 3M makes great damage-free hooks.
STEP 3: CLIP AND HANG YOUR HAIR ACCESSORIES ON YOUR CUTE NEW ORGANIZER
That’s it. If you were looking for something more complicated, I am sorry to disappoint. We’ve now been using this shower organizer as the hair organizer for months, and have added a few more features to house elastics and hairbands. This system is working well, and should last us for the foreseeable hair-doing future. Enjoy!
