Monday Make :: Fancy Hair Tie

The holidays are a time to make things sparkle, to add a little bit of something extra to our everyday lives, spirits and wardrobes. In today’s Monday Make, we’ll show you how to take your run-of-the-mill hairband into a fancy hair tie with sparkle that you’ll love to wear.

Best of all, you can make fancy hair ties by the dozens and give sets to all of your friends!

You don’t need much to start your own set of hair ties, just:

A quick note on Aileene’s Quick Dry Fabric Fusion: it really, really worked for this project. The hair ties were still stretchy after the glue was applied, and the glue stayed put; it dried quickly, too. You might not even *have* to let it cure overnight, but better safe than sorry, I always say. I tried three other types of glue, and this one worked the best by far.

Now, let’s get this Monday Make started! And you know how you often wear your hair tie around your wrist when it’s not helping you keep your locks out of your eyes? Well, this hair tie doubles equally well as a fab sparkling bracelet.
