Boo’s hair accessories and jewelery were stored in a huge jumbled mess until recently:
I took some thrift and discount store finds and used spray paint to create more organized storage! Boo picked the colors (I would have opted a more subtle color palette haha):
Here’s the beat up 99 cent mug holder I bought from the thrift store:
I spray painted the base white for the underneath color:
I used my Silhouette machine to cut “Sienna” out of shelf vinyl:
Next I spray painted the entire holder purple (over the stencil):
After the purple layer dried I carefully peeled off the vinyl letters:
The painted and personalized mug holder is perfect for necklaces, bracelets and headbands:
I’m always scouring discount stores clearance sections (Marshall’s, TJ Maxx) for cool items that I can redo. I found this 6 dollar shell holder in the clearance section that I thought would be a great accessory holder since it already had all the compartments built in:
I masked off the glass area and sprayed a base of white on the front just like I did for the mug holder:
I did the reverse stencil lettering the same way as the mug holder too using the Silhouette Machine only this one said “hair pretties”:
A perfect container for separating out all those hair ribbons, clip and bands:
Now all of Boo’s hair and jewelry are organized and easy to find and put away!

Thank you so much for such an awesome and practical tutorial. I have a massive basket of hair stuff for my little girl and I can never find what I am looking for. This will work perfectly! Thrifting time to find the right pieces to rework! Thanks again!

Great ideas, Ashley! Thank you so much!
Great idea thanks – now to find one of those containers! Hair clips and bands seem to multiply all on their own in our house!
That is a terrific use for one of those mug holders. I am so mad at myself for passing them by at value village.
