Hair clip holder
Hey there, it’s Monica (and Jess) from The Real Housewives of Bucks County.   We’re so glad you guys liked our $20 Huge Artwork last month, so this month we’re bringing you another quick and easy, crazy-affordable project.


I am so not a girly-girl, so sometimes I’m a little lost with my younger daughter who is all things frills and princesses.   We had a slight hair clip crisis going on in our house… they were everywhere! I needed a cute, cheap solution that wasn’t over the top girly.

Modern Hair Clip Holder


A canvas

Painter’s Tape

Spray Paint


Hot Glue Gun

A Million hair clips (optional)

I had an 11×14 canvas and some painters tape sitting around (yes, both just happened to be in my kitchen… just a day in the life of a DIYer).   I recommend Frog Tape for this project.   It’s just the right amount of sticky.


Arrange your tape in any pattern you want.   I wanted a modern, linear look.   I didn’t measure at all, but you definitely could.   Here’s what I ended up with…


Make sure your tape wraps around the edges.


Head to your favorite spray painting spot and give it two light coats.


Here’s the cool, (not uber-girly) purple color I ended up with.


I had some dollar bin ribbon leftover and attached it using a combination of hot glue and tape.   Don’t put glue all along the back of the ribbon because that’s where the clips will go, rather just put a couple small dots of glue on each side.


Tape worked for the back, but I’d definitely recommend glue.


I added ribbon to about half of the white stripes.


Allow it to dry and then begin adding your clips.   Yup, it’s really that simple!


I love how it almost looks like art!



I put it right above the dress up rack and, so far, the hair clip crisis has been averted!


This is a REALLY simple project that a rookie DIYer can completely handle and that an experienced DIYer can whip together in under 30 minutes.
