Easy DIY: Elastic hair-ties
(Anthropoligie inspired like this or this.)
Here's what you need:
Fold-over elastic - you can pick some up from any fabric store or from here also.
1 yard makes about 4 hair-ties.
Sharp fabric scissors
Ruler or measuring tape
1.) Each hair-tie should be made from about 9 inches of elastic, depending on how much of a "tail" you want.
2.) Then, all you have to do is cut, fold and knot the ends.
3.) Finally, I burn the cut ends with a lighter real quick so the thread won't fray.
What's great about these elastics is that they don't leave a crease in your hair. Headbands can also be made using this same technique. Will you try this easy DIY?
