Rustic Baby Headband Holder

It’s now less than 2 weeks until my due date (yay!), so in honor of that I will be sharing some baby-related projects over the next few weeks. Most of them will be things I made for the nursery, but possibly a few other little projects here and there, depending on the time frame and schedule that is pretty unknown at this point. Anyway, today I wanted to share the darling rustic baby headband holder I created to hold some of our baby’s headbands. She has so many that there is still a small compartment in a drawer with more in it, but I decided to showcase the ones that match the colors of her nursery, neutrals and lavender. Since we live in a rental, we are unable to paint the walls, so it worked out that everything I made actually looks good on them, because I would have gone with a different color!

Only 3 (well more if you’re counting the headbands) things are needed for this project: a rustic piece of wood, some nails, and a way to mount it to the wall (I used a Command strip). For the length of board I used, about 18 inches, I decided I wanted to have 10 headbands displayed, so the very first thing I did was lay the nails out on the board to figure out where I wanted them placed. Next I marked the location with a pencil, and finally I hammered the nails part of the way into the board, leaving plenty of room for headbands to hang off. After mounting it to the wall with Command Strips, I then just had to pick the headbands to hang off of it, and that’s it!


It was super simple to make, and went along perfectly with the farmhouse/lamb nursery idea I had. This same project could be used to hang bow ties for a little boy, necklaces, keys, really anything you can think of that needs hanging! I just love it!!!

Grandma, You’re a Hoot

This is the third of four Mother’s Day cards I made using the set, “Mom + Me”.  One thing I did different for this card, is actually cut the card a lot narrower than I usually would have, to allow for the sentiment paper to hang off of the sides, but yet still fit into an envelope to mail. I really like how it looks, and will have to try the technique on other cards in the future! Anyway, I’ve always loved using kraft colored papers in my cards, so when I saw this kraft paper with white hearts I knew it had to be used in this card! Gray, yellow, and a light blue seemed to be the perfect complimentary colors to go along with it, and I love how they look together. The pine tree and mushroom are from Lawn Fawn’s “Critters in the Forest”. And that darling kraft heart paper? It’s from the Pebbles, “Spring Fling” paper pack!

Mom, I Love You

This is the final card I made using the stamp set, “Mom + Me”, and is a second card I made using Pebbles’s “Spring Fling” paper pack (every paper that is patterned). The darling heart stamps are from “Jump for Joy”, and “Party Animal”. I decided to also use a paper doily I had on this card, and I think it adds the perfect touch. As far as the colors, I just picked a few papers I loved and realized how perfect the colors worked together, so lucky me!
