Soooooooo. Hello! My life is a mix of studying, social media surfing, reading, sleeping, and eating (lots of eating). Pintrest has exasperated these parts of my life as well as providing me with a ‘to do’ list that is quite literally endless. Last week I decided I was finally going to do one of the DIY’s I found on pintrest.
I made hair ties.
I know, you’re impressed :). Recently these amazing elastic hair ties are everywhere. by amazing I mean they are pretty, they are strong, they don’t leave creases in my hair, and most importantly they don’t hurt! But they are crazy expensive, a pack of three cost almost $5!!!! A traditional pack of hair ties can be 20-40 ties for the same cost. So when I saw a pin that took me to a site that sold the material for $0.50 a yard (1 yard make 4 ties), I couldn’t help myself. I bought 5 yards.
The site I used was Sunshine Shoppe, http://www.sunshineshoppesupply.com . They had the best color selection and prices of the six sites I looked at. The material is 5/8 inch stretch fold over elastic and it is fantastic! All you do is fold the yard into fourths, cut, and tie. So easy, Simple, and fabulous. I can’t wait to do it again, I think next time I’ll make some headbands too!
