Weekly Pinterest Project: Week 43-Creaseless Hair Ties

20140518-203202-73922727.jpg

Hello! I have a super quick and fun Pinterest project this week: creaseless hair ties! These cute, colorful hair ties seem to be all over Etsy but they are kind of pricey, especially considering how easy it is to make them.

For this project, you need some fold over elastic, which I found on Etsy from this seller. Plenty of shops on Etsy sell the elastic but I liked that I could get a variety of colors in small quantities from this particular seller. It cost .50 per yard and I bought four different colors.

In addition to the elastic, you need scissors, a piece of paper, and a lighter.

Use the paper as a guide and cut pieces of the elastic (using the longer side of the paper).  Fold the elastic in half and tie a knot at the end of it.  Take the lighter and singe the ends.  That’s it! You now have a cute creaseless hair tie! I made several for Harper using the smaller side of paper, so we have matching hair ties! How fun!
