Geometric Beads Hair Ties DIY

Who doesn’t need extra hair accessories? It seems like I’m regularly losing my hair ties, and searching for one inside a pocket or my purse. Inspired by a previous craft, I searched for fold-over elastic and a few beads.

Looking for materials is alway exciting and I love when I find exactly what I was looking for.

  1. For this craft, you will need fold-over elastic, geometric beads and nail polish or metallic sharpies.
  2. Wipe the beads with a paper towel or cloth.
  3. Choose a few nail polishes or metallic sharpies. You can use both.
  4. Apply nail polish to two opposite sides of the geometric beads. Wait for the nail polish to dry, before you start painting another facet of the beads.
  5. Admire your creations!
  6. Cut 7 inches of fold-over elastic and tape one end with scotch tape. This will help the fold-over elastic to “get through” the small hole of the bead. Finally, tie a knot at both ends of the strips and enjoy your new hair ties.

    I was wondering how you tolerated spraypainting each side, but fingernail polish is genius :) Thanks for sharing at On Display Thursday!!
