DIY Hair Elastics

We’re back with another DIY, brought to us by the awesome Erin of Thanks, I Made It. Keep reading to see how to make some fun hair elastics, and stop by Thanks, I Made It to see more of Erin’s original DIYs!
With the season’s heat and humidity, a hair elastic is an absolute summer staple. They are easy to make and incredibly fun to collect. Make your own colorful hair ties with an M&J elastic and a sharp scissor.
Β Cut a piece of fold over elastic about 9 inches long.
Tie the ends in a simple knot.
Trim the ends at a 45 degree angle. To keep ends from fraying, use fray check or gently fuse with a lighter.
As simple as they are to make, you can make a whole rainbow!

    Greetings from Idaho! I’m bored to tears at work so I decided to browse your site on my iphone during lunch break. I love the information you present here and can’t
    wait to take a look when I get home. I’m shocked at how fast your blog loaded on my phone .. I’m not even using WIFI, just 3G .
    . Anyways, awesome blog!

  6. Does your blog have a contact page? I’m having problems locating it but, I’d like to send you an
    email. I’ve got some creative ideas for your blog you might be interested in hearing. Either way, great website and I look forward to seeing it expand over time.

  7. Hi! I could have sworn I’ve been to this blog before but after going through a few of the posts I realized it’s new to me.

    Anyways, I’m certainly delighted I discovered it and I’ll be bookmarking it and checking back regularly!

  8. Definitely consider that which you said. Your favorite justification appeared to be on the net the easiest factor to keep in mind
    of. I say to you, I certainly get annoyed whilst people consider
    issues that they just do not know about. You managed to hit
    the nail upon the highest as smartly as outlined out the
    entire thing without having side-effects , folks could take a signal.

    Will likely be again to get more. Thanks

    I love this idea, but before I buy some elastics I have to ask, does this stay on while running?
