EASY Upcycle DIY: Make Your Own Bobby Pin Keeper



Here is a 5 minute or less EASY Upcycle DIY project- Make Your Own Bobby Pin Keeper.

All you need is an empty tic tac container and a little washi tape. (I found the cute bird print washi tape at The Dollar Tree….so you can totally get it on the cheap.)


Not only is it cute, it is the perfect size to slip into your handbag or takes up virtually no space on a shelf or in a drawer. Just shake out what you need.



Remove the label from the Tic Tac container. (This was actually surprisingly easy.)


Start wrapping the container with washi tape. I chose 2 patterns to alternate- a black chevron and a cute bird pattern.


When you get to the bottom just fold over and press.


You are ready to fill your Bobby Pin Keeper with Bobby Pins!


Cute, inexpensive and super easy! This project took me less than 5 minutes to complete.

    What a great idea! This would be great to keep in my purse and not have to dig around for one! My oldest daughter loves to make things especially when there’s tape involved, so this is a great craft for us to do together!

    Thanks for sharing at #InspireMeMondays !
