In case you haven't noticed,
little girls begin accumulating accessories very early on in life. Their first
accessories are typically little bows and barrettes. Finding a way to store and
organize these items can often be a bit difficult. These items are so small can
be lost easily. Well here is an adorable project that can help solve this
problem. This Owl Barrette Holder is the perfect way to store your little girl’s
barrettes. Cathie and Steve designed this project. It is very simple to create,
and it is a great project to have your kids help make.
