There are 2 things a girl’s gotta have during the summer months – chapstick and sun glasses. I can leave everything else behind but those are my two must have items. And this year I wanted to make my 2 favorite things a little more accessible and safe.
These 2 holders can be created in less than 5 minutes so you’ll be on your way to the beach in no time with your cute little holders in tow. 😉
Hold It! 2 quick and easy DIYs for your Favorite Summer Accessories
Let’s start with the chapstick holder, shall we?
All you’ll need is 1 1/2 inch grosgrain ribbon and a key ring. Yep, that’s it!
Cut your ribbon at 12″ long.
Grab your key ring
String ribbon through the key ring about 1/3 of the way down the ribbon and fold the ribbon over the key ring.
Fold the tail of the ribbon towards the key ring.
Tuck about 3/4″ inch of the ribbon down inside. This will prevent fraying.
Pin in place.
Sew down both sides of the ribbon as close to the edge as possible but taking mind of sewing all the layers together.
And that’s it! Yep, it’s really that easy to create an adorable little key ring chapstick holder!
Now, let’s make something cute to hold those sunnies and keep them protected from scratches.
Here’s what you’ll need:
8″X12″ piece of fabric
8″X6″ piece of batting
a couple of scrap pieces of coordinating fabric (if you want to stamp a cute label on the front, this isn’t necessary though!)
Start by placing a couple of coordinating fabrics on the lower left corner of your fabric, making sure to not get too close to the edges of your main fabric.
Sew the coordinating pieces to your main fabric with coordinating thread.
After you have sewn down all 4 sides, grab a stamp set.
