Oatmeal Can Turned into a Headband Holder

Today, I'm working on making two headband holders for my daughter.  

Supplies needed to make one:

-empty oatmeal can
-empty large tuna can (or other can/something for the base), optional
-2 sheets of scrapbook paper in desired color/pattern
-coordinating paint to match scrapbook paper
-Mod Podge (I used glossy-lustre)
-spray or brush on paint for the tuna can base (I used white Rustoleum because that's what I had on hand)
-strong glue, you could use hot glue (I'm using  Amazing E-6000)


1. Cut scrapbook paper to fit around oatmeal can, use Mod Podge as the glue and then also apply over the top of the paper to create that glossy look.  Allow to dry completely.
2. Paint the tops of the oatmeal cans using the coordinating paint (also paint the bottoms of the oatmeal cans which is optional, but I may hang these and didn't want to see the cardboard bottoms).
3. Spray paint the outside of the tuna cans (its not nessecary to paint the inside, you won't see it)
4. Apply a good amount of glue to the top edges of the tuna can and attach it to the bottom of the oatmeal can, make sure it is centered and where you what it to be.  Allow to dry.


*Here are our two competed Headband Holders; the great thing is that you can put your hair ties, clips, etc. into the container; so everything stays together!
