Everyone is wearing these hair ties, and you can find them all over the place, but I want to show you how to make your own at a fraction of the cost!
Start with fold over elastic that is 5/8" wide. you can find black, white and tan at any sewing store, but if you want it with patterns on it like I have here, you should check your local craft store or purchase it online.
Measure out 9" of the elastic. When you are cutting, be sure to cut your edges at a diagonal.
Seal the ends of your elastic with clear fingernail polish.
Fold your elastic in half as shown here.
Tie a knot in the end of your elastic and you've made an adorable pony tail holder.
If you make a few of them, you can display them on cardstock and give them as gifts!
