Chalkboard Headband Storage

Chalkboard Headband Storage

You’ll need:

  • Glue Dots®
  • 3 plastic ice cream containers with lids
  • chalkboard paint (Rust-Oleum)
  • paint brush
  • painter’s tape
  • sandpaper
  • sunglasses rope
  • neon craft foam shapes (bug and butterfly kit)
  • googly eyes
  • pipe cleaners
  • wire cutters
  • decorative cardstock
  • chalk
  • scissors
  • drill
  1. Lightly sand the outside of each ice cream container. Wash and dry the containers.
  2. Drill holes into the top of each container and into the bottom of two containers. Cover holes in the inside of each container with painter’s tape to prevent paint drips.
  3. Apply three coats of chalkboard paint to the outside of the containers and allow at least 4 hours of drying time in between coats. Set aside for 3 days.
  4. Create 6 foam butterflies/bugs with antenna from the kit (2 for each ice cream container) and use Mini and Micro Glue Dots to secure pieces together.
  5. Remove the painter’s tape once chalkboard paint has set for 3 days. Cut the sunglasses rope into 3 equal pieces and thread through the drilled holes, tying knots to secure into place. Cut off excess rope.
  6. Decorate the chalkboard containers with frames created from foam strips and the butterflies/bugs from Step 4. Use 1″ Glue Lines to adhere foam to the containers.
  7. Cut the ends of each ice cream container lid and attach decorative paper with Mini Glue Dots to the tops. Secure the cut lids to the bottom of each container with 1″ Glue Lines to keep headbands from falling out.
  8. Hang the chalkboard headband storage, insert headbands and use chalk to write messages on the sides.
