Imagine this scene:  You're running late, trying to get your hair done and makeup on, and you were supposed to be out the door five minutes ago.  In your half-panicked rush, you completely forget that your flat iron is still hot and you toss it in the cupboard.  Later that day, you make the horrifying discovery that the hot iron made contact with a bottle of mouthwash, the melted plastic resulting in a catastrophic mess.  Sounds like something that might happen to you?  Here's an easy solution that will prevent such an incident from happening!  Jami from Creative Juices transformed a pot holder into a cute, practical sleeve for holding her flat iron.  It would also work for holding a curling iron!  [how to make a flat iron or curling iron holder]

Project estimate:

  • Pot holder, $1
  • Sewing machine or needle and thread, on hand

Total:  $1

    I was just thinking the other day that I needed to create something for my flat iron. Good thinking, Jami!

    This is brilliant!
    I’ve always been tempted to purchase a pouch for my flat iron out of the ThirtyOne catalogue that my friend is always trying to sell stuff out of. I have just never been able to let myself spend that much money on one.
    THIS, however, is perfect!!!
    And it can be hung with the loop instead of using up more shelf space.
