Do you have a little girl in your life that you want to make bunches of hairbows for? How about hair ties? Or have you considered making and selling hairbows? Need a place to buy supplies in bulk? I've got you covered in all sorts of cute ways... here are a couple of how-to tutorials on making super cute headbands and hair ties, along with where to buy supplies. (this is a sponsored post, but all opinions are my own, and Hairbow Supplies, Etc is awesome).
Super-awesome hair ties - so easy to make!
I put some sneak peek pictures of this project on instagram, and everyone was wondering where to get the supplies - - you know, fold over elastic (foe) is hard to find in the stores, and when you do, it's pricey - - so it's way worth ordering, and a great shop is Hairbow Supplies, Etc. Seriously check them out - I can't believe how low their prices are and how much selection they have.
And guess what - - you can get 20% off your order with the code CRAFT20 !! On top of the already super-awesome prices, you can't pass that up.
Alright, once you get your supplies, you'll want to know how to make these fun accessories. They are all no-sew! Anyone can do this. Let's dive into the tutorials...
First up, the Hair Ties. These are made from fun "fold over elastic" and are super super simple. First measure a piece about 9 inches long:
Then match up the two ends and cut a slight slant to the edges:
Then tie a knot - that's it! See, you can totally make this.
I used cardstock to make fun sets - it shows off the cute elastic. You can even cut up cereal boxes - thin cardboard is all you need:
Here's one of my favorite sets - love the gray, pink, and turquoise combo:
I made a bunch of sets because I thought these would make awesome valentines for my girls to pass out to their friends. I slid the card into a small clear envelope and taped it shut with a heart on it where they can sign their name. I tried to come up with some witty saying "all tied up over you" "you're stretchy cool" or whatever, but nothing stuck, so I didn't end up going with anything. But if you thought of a cute saying, wouldn't that make a fun label for the bag??
Next tutorial, the stretchy headbands. These are just as easy! First cut a length of elastic that fits comfortably around the head with being stretched just a little (not too tight). Then overlap the ends and glue together, as shown below:
Then you just hot glue the back of the flower over the seam. Yes, the flowers are premade - it doesn't get easier than that. You can get tons of flowers from Hairbow Supplies as well - here's the ones I worked with:
I made these three separate stretchy headbands, for everyday "casual" wear:
See, those two projects are simple, and you can do them!! Have I inspired you yet to check out Hairbow Supplies, Etc - do that to grab your supplies, then start cranking out the cuteness. Remember, code CRAFT20 for 20% off your order!
