My very own tutorial!!!

This is the first tutorial I have posted that is absoultely 100% mine.
 I am soooo excited and hope the handful of people who follow me are too!
And if you are not officially a follower, please follow and make my day!
OK now for the tutorial:

Upcycled Oatmeal Canister becomes a perfect place to hold hair accessories.
All you need is an empty oatmeal container, an old sweater sleeve, and a glue gun.
Simple right?

I chose brown to match our animal print bathroom.
Cut the sleeve from one adult sweater and stretch the cut end over the canister top.

Then grab cut ends, twist, and cut about an inch from the canister
 (or have a lovely assistant like I did cut it for you).

Then add some glue to the bottom of the canister, twist again and pat onto hot glue.
Then I added a few more drops of glue here and there to secure.

Turn over and add glue along the rim of the canister top and
press your finished sweater sleeve edge onto the canister.

That's it! Now you can add all of your hair accessories to your creation. 
 My kiddos even put their mirror and hair dryer in here.

Let me know what you think and please share if you make your own.


  1. fun! I love when crafty marries organization... it's the perfect romance!

  2. I use an oatmeal container for storing my baking chocolate in the fridge. It contains all of the chocolate and hides it at the same time. lol

  3. Thanks Mariah. Great idea Brenda. Thanks. I think I will try that after the next canister of oatmeal is done :)

  4. Cool! Good idea - I'm going to show it to Lisa. She likes making stuff like this around the house.

  5. I am linking this on craft eNVy. Not sure if I am doing this right though :)
