Don’t you just hate it when all of your good hair ties stretch out or snap? Me too!! Well here is a DIY that you can do in 5 minutes for under $5!
1) Pick up some FOLD OVER ELASTIC. My local craft store had an okay variety of patterns and colors ranging from $1.99-2.99 for 1 yard which looks to be about average.
Amazon.com has a ton of AMAZING patterns and bundles with FREE shipping through Amazon Prime. Here are some of my favorites that I found!
2) Get familiar with the elastic. And by get familiar I mean make sure you find the shiny side versus the matte side. You are going to want the matte side touching your hair because it will have better hold.
3) Measure out your hair tie. I looped it around my wrist and then cut it at a diagonal. I would pull it a bit snug, but that was hard to take a picture of 🙂
NOW to turn these into a super cute stocking stuffer or gift topper!
I grabbed a small mesh bag that I had laying around from baby shower favors and added the hair ties.
