The DIY oatmeal container headband storage was on my list of Pinterest things to do to help take control of my daughter’s headband collection. When I looked at the requirements, while simple, I realized there is no way I would ever use enough oatmeal to empty out the big container it requires. That is when I put on my thinking cap and came up with an inexpensive and easy solution.
After a visit to look for answers at the Dollar Tree I spied this tall canister. (I also saw a similar canister at Dollar General, but it was $3 instead of $1.) It looked perfect, and when I took it home it worked great. No scrapbook paper, oatmeal containers, spray paint or effort. That is the kind of project I like best.

Other side so you know you have picked the correct canister.

Nice deep area to put bows, fabric bands and other hair accessories.
