Emerald Elastic Trio

  • Hair_ties Pin-it%402x

Details

Whether it’s holding your top knot or ponytail secure or just holding court on your wrist upgrade your everyday black elastic to something a bit more grown up. The wider Japanese elastic won't leave creases in your hair and the mix of olive, forest, and teal feels fresh with a trio of polished brass beads.

Tools

  • scissors

Materials

  • trio of elastics in olive, forest, and teal
  • trio of brass beads
He1w Pin-it%402x

Gather your materials and grab a pair of sharp scissors.

He2w Pin-it%402x

Snip the elastic at a 45 degree angle to create a point. Fold it in half, making it skinny enough to fit through the hole in the brass beads.

He3 Pin-it%402x

Slide a brass bead onto the elastic. Any of the three beads will work. It's totally up to you which bead pairs with each color of the elastic.

He4w Pin-it%402x

Slide the bead to the center of the elastic.

He5 Pin-it%402x

Tie the ends together with a knot. Pull to tighten.

He6w Pin-it%402x

Snip the ends of the elastic at a 45 degree angle.

He7sw Pin-it%402x

Repeat with the other two colors and layer them up!

I agree-- super cute, and one of them fit my wrist perfect, but the other is my 1 year old god daughter's size!

Really cute & simple. If you stretch the elastic before tying (like you would for a balloon) they fit well.

I love green and I super love that these are not your normal buy at the store green hair ties. I hope you can come up with more fun hair projects in the future. The previous ones are great too. Yay!

I found that a toothpick can really assist in getting the elastic through.

Really cute. I love this type of hair elastic, as they don't rip out my thick hair. The colors are gorgeous. I trimmed the first elastic at an angle, but decided to keep the others straight. I preferred the ends straight. If you roll the ends really well (even without trimming at an angle), they fit through the beads just fine.

I brushed the ends of the cut elastic with clear nail polish so they don't fray. So far so good!

As an addition to LG's comment, an un-bent paperclip can also help getting the elastic through the beads. I just got my box, and brought it to work for a lunch-time crafting break. No toothpicks at my desk, but plenty of paperclips!
