DIY Elastic Hair TiesAugust 6, 2015
Have you all seen those hand-knotted hair ties they sell at fashion & department stores- at a price of like 4 hair ties for $5? Yea, those ones! Well, I’m here to tell you that you do not need to spend that kind of money for simple pieces of elastic. There’s no need to do so, my friends.
I picked up a set of four different cord elastics at Walmart for only 2 bucks- with enough elastic to make probably 50 hair ties! And the steps are so ridiculously simple! Trust me, you can do this!
DIY Elastic Hair Ties
1. Pick up some cord elastic. I found this set at Walmart for only about 2 bucks. It has 4 different patterns. Isn’t it pretty?
2. Snip small strips of the elastic and fold them over in half.
3. Make small knots at the open ends.
4. Using a lighter, carefully singe the edges of the knotted end to prevent fraying.
Voila! Finished Elastic Hair Ties!
Simply wrap them around a piece of cardboard and you can give them to a friend, relative, neighbor or teacher as a small gift! It would be adorable with a pretty, little label! Aren’t they cute? If you head to the fabric store, you’ll probably find cord elastic in about a million different patterns!
I’m loving my new hair ties! And I’m also loving what they cost me – next to nothing! 🙂 Happy crafting, friends!

I love this idea! Brilliant. Thanks for sharing at Thursday Favorite Things!
Such a simple idea, but it really saves money over the store-bought ones!
This would be a great project for my daughter. She is almost 12 and is showing a huge interest in creating things every chance she gets, plus she has started experimenting with hairstyles on her own.

I’m sure your daughter would love this project. Plus, at the craft store, you can pick up elastic in pretty much any color and any pattern!

So much fun customizing hair accessories! And so economical, too! Have a fabulous weekend, Jess!
This is such a great idea! My daughter is forever loosing her ties like these and they can become expensive to replace over time!
Absolutely! Definitely make a bunch of these! Much, much cheaper than the store-bought variety! Have a fabulous day, Stephanie!
I can’t wait to try to make some of these. I am so happy that you shared this link on #HomeMattersParty and I hope you will come back and share again.
They are a really fun and simple project! Thanks for stopping by, Melissa!
