I am sure all of you have grown to know and love no crease hair ties (aka emi jays) and I too am very fond of them. However, I think the price tag is a little steep for such a simple product. I have been making my own hair ties for the past two years and I am excited to finally getting around to sharing the process with you!
Many of you have probably seen this tutorial before but I wanted to share how I do this anyway!
I have used both patterned and plain elastic and both turn out equally as cute! The best and cheapest place to find the fold over elastic you need to make these hair ties is etsy! When you go to etsy type "fold over elastic" into the search bar and a plethora of the product will come up!
What you will need:
fold over elastic
What to do:
1) Take your elastic and measure a piece to 9 inches (this can vary depending on your preference but I like this length).
2) Cut elastic, I find it easiest to cut all of it at once and then complete the next steps.
3) Fold the piece of elastic in half and tie a knot.
4) Now take your lighter and turn it on (I don't know how you would properly say to make a flame appear so we will go with that) and run it across the ends of the tied ends to avoid fraying.
Ta Da you have just created your own No Crease Hair Ties! Super easy and fun and they make amazing gifts for friends!
