Headband Storage from Shipping Material

Since my oldest daughter has recently become pretty OBSESSED with headbands I really needed a storage solution for her ever growing collection.  There are lots of DIY options out there, but here is one that is super easy and repurposes something that would otherwise end up in the landfills.
 
For this project you'll need:
large cardboard tube (mine is from ordering a rug online)
fabric
batting
ribbon
hot glue gun
 
 
 
First you'll need to cut your tube to the size you want.  Mine is about a foot long, but it really doesn't matter.



Next, cover the tube in one layer of batting using your glue gun.
 
 
Then cover the tube in one layer of fabric using your glue gun.
 
 
Fold the edges of the fabric into the tube and glue down (I found that using a spoon to press the fabric into the hot glue was a good way to avoid burns!)
 
 
 
You could be done right here, but I didn't like the way you could see the inside of the tube and the edges of the fabric...so I cut a pice of white cardstock to fit inside the tube and glued it into place.  I used cardstock instead of fabric so it would be stiff and have a crisp edge.
 
 
 
Now cut your length of ribbon and tie it into a loop through the tube. 

 
 
That's it!  An easy project (and gift idea) that repurposes a potential trash item into beautiful and functional storage.  I will be making a bunch more of these for all the little girls on my Christmas list!

Recover plain Wal-Mart storage bin

Since I've been working on finishing my daughters' rooms with as many DIY and re-purposing projects as possible I wanted to get this one out as soon as it was done so hopefully someone else to can use this idea.
 
My kids rooms have quite a few bins that we use to store all sorts of items.  In the baby's room we use them for diapers, small and large blankets, toiletries, and pretty much anything else that fits!  I like using this type of storage since it's easy to access with one hand on a squirming child, and can be changed out at any time. 
 
This isn't much of a tutorial, more if an idea suggestion:
 
Don't pass up on a sturdy storage bin because the fabric is bad!
 
I bought quite of few of these metal framed storage bins...
 
 
 
...from Wal-Mart before my oldest daughter was born and have used them in her room ever since.  But now that we are settled in our new house and I'm actually decorating the kids rooms, the plain primary color canvas material had to go! 
 
Here's a speedy tutorial to show you how quick this project is
 
First, take off the old covers and rip out the Velcro strips
(see how good and sturdy that wire frame is!)
 
Seam rip the four side seams, but keep the bottom attached.  Fold the fabric in half and trace a pattern onto craft paper
 
 
 
Cut out a new cover in pretty fabric
(make sure that fabric is folded in half)
 
Sew all four side seams together
 
Put the new cover onto the metal frame and mark and resew in the Velcro that came with the original bin
 
And just like that I re-purposed some ugly storage bins into beautiful "Baby Girl" bins.  So easy, and so much prettier!
 
 
Keep this in mind the next time you see a storage bin that has a sturdy frame...and just ask yourself "Can I tear that apart and recover it?"
