I’m obsessed with twist band hair ties, but let’s cut the crap. These things go for like $2 a pop at the cheapest which is completely absurd. Follow the simple tutorial below to make your own and save some dollas.
What you’ll need to make 4 bands:
♥ 1 yard fold over elastic, any color (find this at any fabric store)
♥ Craft scissors
First, gather your supplies. You can get a yard of fold-over elastic for $2-$3. Cut roughly 9.5″ sections.
Once you’ve cut the elastic into sections, fold one of them in half.
Loosely tie the whole thing into a knot, then slowly tighten, pushing the knot upwards towards the tip of the elastic.
Voila! You can make a bunch in just a few minutes. Notice how some of the edges may fray? Trim the lose ends down and top off with a light coat of clear nail polish.
The best part of all? These bad boys are super good for your hair and double as an adorable accessory. Check out our post here to find ways to pair your bands with your fave watches and jewelry!
