Add some sparkle to the everyday with these DIY glitter hair ties. Making a set is easy and inexpensive, and you can customize the colors as you wish. This project is ideal to give as a party favor, small gift, or stocking stuffer. Pro tip: Display on chipboard for maximum impact.

You will need

 

Step 1: Measure elastic and cut

Use a measuring tape to measure elastic and cut. For fine hair, we recommend cutting 8 in. / 20 cm. of elastic; for thicker hair, use 10 in. / 25 cm.
 

Step 2: Fold elastic

Fold your elastic in half, so that the sparkly side is facing outwards.
 

Step 3: Tie a knot

Secure the ends using an overhand knot.
 

Step 4: Repeat, repeat, repeat

Repeat this process to make a full set of hair elastics.
 

Optional: Display on chipboard

 
To display your elastics for gifting, cut out a 3 x 5 in. / 8 x 13 cm. piece of chipboard. Slide on your elastics and personalize with stickers or a handwritten note. Done!
