I used to display my hippie headbands by hanging them on some small twirly thing that looked unorganized and messy. My customers were just not really noticing them much so I decided that I needed a way to display them in a way that would showcase them better.
I headed to Goodwill and began to shop around for anything that was round and wide enough that I could slide the headbands on it without them falling off. I came across this toilet paper roll holder and thought I'd give it a try. It was the perfect shape but much too slick to keep them from slipping right off so I continued to shop around to find something to cover it with. Besides...I needed to find something to make it look cute too! :)
I came across a perfect sized valance that was already finished so all I had to do was cut it to fit around the holder, sew a straight stitch down the cut side and slip it on. That was it! I did add buttons on the back side to hold up the loose headbands but most of them stay on with no problem at all. It was also the perfect colors too!
I'd like to find some kind of pedestal for it so I can have it sit up higher on the table but it looks so much better than what I had before! I can also store my headbands inside the holder for transporting. When I set it up on my table, I use the headband holder to display one of each headband and I put all of the extra headbands in a basket next to it.
Well...I'd say it is kitty approved! Lol!
