DIY Hair Clip Holder from a Picture Frame

I finished the kids' rooms!  In the next week or two I'll be posting about the various projects I worked on for each room.  Here is one of my favorite elements of my daughter's room...

I found some sheets at Wal Mart in the leopard print and I used it for most of the projects in the room.

Here is the before and after
The frame is something I found at a garage sale (two years ago) with the intention of doing this one day.  That is NOT a quick turn around, but hey, at least it's done now.

I took the frame apart by unscrewing it from the back.  I then placed a sheet of batting over the picture and particle board that made up the back of the frame

Then came the fabric layer

The fabric was cut to fit a little better

I then cris-crossed the pink gross grain ribbon to lay it out.  I used a little dab of hot glue at each of the intersections.  Then I turned it over and hot glued the heck out of all the layers to the back of the particle board.

Here's what the back looked like right before I went nuts with the glue gun.  I replaced the screws that held the back onto the frame at this point.

I also added these little gems from Hobby Lobby to give it a little sparkle.  What did I use to adhere them?  You guessed it!  Hot glue!

Here is it all done but without any bows or clips on it.

What do you think?  It was definitely a hit with the little one.  She is such a girlie girl... I seriously have no idea where she gets it!  I didn't have so much as a Barbie doll growing up.

Thanks so much for stopping by!
