The first time I saw those knotted hair ties I thought, “Why are these so expensive? Its just colored elastic tied in a knot. I can do that.”
But, I couldn’t find the right elastic at the craft store, and got busy with life and forgot all about my mission to make cheap hair bands.
Then I stumbled upon this pin. The blogger said she found the elastic at Michaels. I tried again to find it but had no luck.
I ordered my elastic (the plain colors were $ 0.50, the neon colors were $ 0.60, and the glitter was ($1.20) I got 15 yards of various colors, each yard making 4 hair ties. So for about 10 bucks I got 60 bands. Not too shabby.
They were so easy to do.
All the pretty colors
Lots of Christmas gifts
