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 at 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.
I’m thinking these could be very cute Christmas stocking stuffers! Thank you for reading and as always I love hearing from you!
