DIY Hair Ties

DIY Hair Ties Supplies
Fold Over Elastic

1. Cut off an 8-10 inch long piece of fold over elastic, depending on how thick your hair is.
2. Fold in half.
3. Knot.
4. You need to seal the edges of the hair tie, use the lighter to singe them.

These hair ties were so easy to make. Tracy and I ended up making a lot of these very quickly. I did the calculations and we made our hair ties for under 9 cents a piece. You pay dollars for these at a store! We have already ordered some more fold over elastic so that we can make more in a variety of colors and patterns.

If you like the glittery jewelry dishes we have the hair ties sitting on in this picture, you can find the DIY information here.
