Source You can order these on Etsy or you can DIY a matchbox yourself.
Matchboxes are conveniently bobby pin sized and the pin up photos give it an extra vintage feel. Reinforce a paper towel roll with colorful paper Source Paper towel rolls will be more sturdy than toilet paper rolls, so cut one in half and double up on storage.
Source Repurpose an empty Tic Tac container to use as a portable bobby pin holder.
The top keeps all your bobby pins from spilling out and, when you want one, only lets a few out without spilling everywhere.
Source I love repurposing old things to have different uses.
After you get the wax out of an old candle holder, use the containers to keep your bobby pins and other miscellaneous beauty products (think q-tips). Keep a small, jaunty jar on your bathroom counter Source I like that this jar looks a little lopsided and isn’t the basic mason jar.
Wrap it with some heavier paper for extra sturdiness and use it to keep your hair ties, too.
Bobby pins come stored on cardboard, so you know they’ll stay put perfectly. Empty out a votive candle holder for an eclectic, classic touch.
It’s huge, so it clearly can also hold more than just bobby pins. If you have a serious amount of hair accessories, keep them in a tackle box. If you have a lot of hair accessories, go to a bait and tackle shop for a simple plastic tackle box to keep your many products in one spot but also in separate compartments.
Take a page out of the fisherman’s handbook and stay organized and ready.
Cover up the logos with tape and glue to customize it how you’d like and keep your bobby pins from falling out all over your backpack. Empty out a parmesan shaker to keep your bobby pins and hair ties in one place.
Source Parmesan shakers are the perfect size for hair ties and the shaker top is great for only getting a few bobby pins at a time without them all toppling out at once.
Simple plates can be found at thrift stores, dollar stores, etc, and with a some magnets and glue, you can turn a dish into a magnetic storage plate. Line your bathroom drawers with magnetic tape Source Even if your bobby pins try to dive bomb out of their container, they’ll be caught by the magnetic tape in your bathroom drawers.
