Back to school means back to doing 3 heads of hair every morning.
I am not complaining .....At least the Big 3 do their own.
It was 113 degrees here yesterday. Oh so hot!!
So, If they don't leave with a pony tail in their hair.......they come home with one for sure.
These are our favorite pony tail ties.
They never break hair. They are really pretty. They work for all ages. And they look really cute when you use several colors.
The girls leave for school with them as bracelets. And come home with them in there hair. So cute!! They are very cheap to make. That way I don't have a cow when they don't come home. My girls loose a lot of hair stuff.........
They also make great gifts for their girlie friends.
Here is how I do it.
Get yourself some "Fold over Elastic". I buy mine from Etsy . (I'll post some sellers below) Scissors, ruler and a lighter or candle.
9 inches for pony holders
20 inches for kid's headbands
22 inches for adult headbands.
1. Fold elastic in half
2. Tie in a knot at the end
3. Pull tight
4. Cut ends at a slight angle with very sharp scissors
This is what you should have.
Flare ends slightly like this . Then carefully run ends through a flame quickly. I use a lighter, but a candle will work.( Can't do it and take pic at the same time....sorry)
This will seal the ends and keep it from fraying.
I made pony ties.
Made a ton!!
I put some on cards for gifts. Next time I think I will use paint chip cards :)
Places I've seen these sold......For way to much.
Places to buy supplies......For cheap.
Hope you make some !!!
Happy Hair Dos ....
