I love visiting small boutiques in my neighborhood and support the community where I live. There is a cute little boutique next to my local Starbucks that I love to visit. My routine goes something like this: I grab a soy caramel macchiato, venture to “Carousel” shop and browse around for decor, items on sale and such. About a few weeks ago, I noticed the cutest and very simple hair ties sitting in a pretty bowl. And when I say simple, I mean rea-lly simple! These cute little accessories consisted of an elastic stretchy band with a knot tied at the end. That’s it! The inner crafter inside me said, “Hey! I can do this myself and have many colors for a fraction of the retail price. So during my next trip to Ben Franklin Crafts store, I asked the sale lady if they carried an elastic stretchy band to make hair ties. She knew exactly what I was talking about and pointed me to a slew of elastic thread supplies. I bought two colors: grey and mint and walked out of the craft store super excited to start my craft. Once I was at home, I looked around my own supplies and found few beads made of wood that inspired me to create my final hair ties craft. Please take a look below to see how I made them.
First, you will need 1) A few wood beads with big holes. 2) A glittery marker. 3) Two yards of fold over elastic. You can find all of these at Ben Franklin Crafts.
I’m thinking these could be very cute Christmas stocking stuffers! Thank you for reading and as always I love hearing from you!
