The $9 item was turned into an organisational masterpiece.
“I previously stored her scrunchies in one of her drawers, along with her hair clips and headbands. It was an overflowing mess and she would always pull everything out when picking a scrunchie to wear,” the mother from Perth told Kidspot exclusively.

A clever, creative and cheap idea
After stumbling a heap of ideas using Kmart’s wooden hooks to hang hair accessories, Jessica decided to get creative.
“I thought it was a fantastic idea that I wanted to try, but after looking at how it was made – I’m always curious and love to pull things apart – I had a light bulb moment that I could dismantle it and change it into a different shape,” she shared.

To make it more of a feature in her daughter’s bedroom, Jessica decided to shape the wooden pegs into a love heart.
“The heart worked perfectly and just added that little extra personal touch.”
How she did it
Jessica purchased the $9 wooden rack from Kmart to begin her little DIY project and documented her steps on her Instagram page @_prettyliving.
She dismantled the wooden rack and reconfigured the shape into the heart.

“It was so simple, I just took all the screws out, rearranged the pieces into a shape of a heart, then screwed it back together,” she explained.
“I hung it on the wall in my daughter’s room and put all her favourite scrunchies on the pegs. It is now a beautiful scrunchie storage masterpiece!”

Jessica is hoping her idea will help inspire other parents to get crafty and find that storage solution they’ve been hoping for.
“I’m so happy with how it turned out, and my daughter loves it. When others see it their first thought is that it is a floral display as the pink-toned scrunchies do look a little like flowers from a distance,” she said.
“I’m hoping to inspire others to get creative and try the same.”
