Barrette Hanger


My girls' have a ton of barrettes and they started taking over my desk drawers.  I made this barrette hanger and now my drawers stay nice and organized and so do their barrettes!  It was very simple to make.
  1. All you need is a hanger, ribbon and double stick fabric tape.  Be sure to choose a ribbon that is the correct width for your barrettes.  If you have barrettes for baby girls, you will want to use a more narrow ribbon.
  2. Cut a long piece of ribbon that will later be draped over the base of the hanger and taped together with your fabric tape.
  3. Using that ribbon, cut the remaining ribbon pieces the same length.  
  4. Drape your ribbon pieces over the base of the hanger.  Be sure to space them appropriately.
  5. Starting at the base of the hanger, begin to tape the ribbon pieces together and work your way down.
Here's what my ribbon hanger looks like without ribbons.


I used a Command hook and hung our ribbon hanger inside our pantry door (shown in the top picture).  This saves us a lot of time looking for barrettes in the morning when we're getting ready for school.
