I love that there are so many rainbow decorations popping up everywhere. It’s like my childhood dreams of growing up to be Rainbow Bright are finally realized! But, I love a good, cheapo DIY even more than a revisit with my kidhood.

And the other day while putting away my daughter’s hair ties and accessories (that were scattered all over the sink like they are every.single.night – sigh), I noticed that her headbands were all bunched together in a pretty way. Which led me to thinking how much it resembled a rainbow. Which led me to imagine how cute it would be surrounded by a bunch of round white clouds. Which led me to picturing it sitting all pretty on the dining room table. Which then led me to this project. <— I swear, this is actually how my “artsy-crafty” brain works. It’s kinda scary-ridiculous, I know.

So, I dug out rainbow colored headbands, grabbed a handful of her little teeny tiny black hair ties, a thin wood piece for the base, 2 small corner braces (same ones I used here), my trusty hot glue gun — and I got to craftin’!

First I stacked up the headbands in the order I wanted them to be in (ROY-G-BIV – obvs.)

Next I attached them together with the little hair ties.

After attaching the headbands to the corner braces on each side with hair ties, for additional stability, I hot glued each corner brace to the interior bottom of the stack of headbands.

Using a screw driver and a small screw, I attached the brace bottom to the wood base.

Bonus! It even looks good with dinosaurs!!! And I consider that a win-win!!!
