Today I'm sharing a simple and easy Halloween hair tie idea. These hair accessories are super trendy right now. I make them all the time for my daughter and myself using just foldover elastic. They're perfect for anyone who wants to be a little bit festive but without all the fussiness that comes with donning a whole costume! These are also great for classroom gifts, party favors, a no candy option for trick or treaters or to wear on your wrist as an accessory!
To create the hair ties you will need:
- 5/8" Foldover Elastics (Ribbon Revelry has a GREAT variety to choose from)
- Halloween Button Embellishments
- String or thread
- Sewing Needle
- 3"x5" thick card (optional)
Step 1: Measure your elastic between 10"-11" and cut.
Step 2: Tie an over hand knot or a simple knot to close up the ends of the elastic. Be gentle with the ends - they tend to fray.
Step 3: Sew on (or glue) button embellishments to the elastics. You can use flat back buttons and glue them on for the new sew option.
Step 4: Add hair ties to a thick 3"x5" cut of decorative cardstock and remember to pass them out on Halloween for no candy option, use as party favors or slide them on your wrists for festive arm candy!
