Tired of hair pins becoming scattered throughout your bathroom space? Consider making your own hair pin organizer! This simple project recycles items that you probably already have within your home.
To create this project, you will need:
- A metal mint container (Altoids tins work best)
- A business card size magnet (like the promotional ones you obtain from restaurants, doctors, etc.)
- A hot glue gun
Begin by making sure that the magnet will fit down inside the tin If not, trim it with a pair of scissors. Add a bit of hot glue to the printed side of the magnet. Adhere the magnet side up and the printed side down in the bottom of the mint tin. Decorate the exterior of the tin, as desired. Add the hair pins inside the tin. The magnet portion will help keep them in place. Enjoy!
