Hair Tie DIY

Saturday, February 21, 2015

Finally it is the weekend!  Sadly I am exhausted and my outfit posts have been lacking.  next week I plan on bringing my A game so look for some more style posts.  In the mean time I thought I would share a little DIY that I came up with the other day.

As I was wandering Hobby Lobby I stumbled upon this super cute elastic ribbon.  That got me thinking....I bet I could make some of those really cute hair ties I see everywhere.  Lucky for me the ribbon was 1/2 off so I picked up 3 spools for under 5.00, and at 3 yards per spool I will have enough hair accessories for the next year.

I think I am going to package these up and give them to my girl friends and maybe surprise a few strangers with a sweet gift.  This would be a great activity for girls, or even a nice treat to share!

What you need:

  •  Elastic ribbon (mine is from Hobby Lobby, here, here, here)
  •  Scissors
  •  Ruler or measuring tape
  •  cardboard/card stock (optional for a way to display your ties if gifting)

Step 1

Measure out your elastic to your desired length (mine ended up being around 9in)

Step 2

Cut your elastic at the desired length (mine is 9in)

Step 3
Fold your elastic in half bringing your ends together  (make sure your design is facing outward)

Step 4

Knot the ends of the elastic

Step 5

Trim off any excess elastic at the ends, and tada you have a hair tie!

Step 6 (optional)

Place the elastics around the cardboard/cardstock and attach a cute note and now you have a perfect inexpensive gift to give.
