Girls' Catchall

A girl may own two hundred barrettes and ponytail holders, but inevitably she wants the one that's nowhere to be found. This one was made from a picture frame with spools and ribbons attached and can be hung from a picture hook. Spools hold necklaces, rings, and elastic bands;the ribbons hold barrettes, clips and earrings.

Choose an unfinished frame with a wide flat front. You will not need the glass or backing. Paint the frame and some small, medium,and large wooden spools with acrylic or latex paint. Glue the spools in lace with wood glue. Turn the frame over and with a staple gun , attach lengths of 1/2 and 3/4 inch wide grosgrain ribbon to the inner edge of the frame,pulling the ribbons taut. Hang the frame from a nail.
