Recently, hair elastics have become a big thing. The problem: they are expensive! For example, Anthropologie sells 5 for $12!

I started doing a little research and came across people who have made their own..and they take about a minute to make!

I bought my elastics from this website:

They sell theirs by the yard and in 1 yard you can make about 4!

The Supplies:

  • Scissors
  • Measuring Tape/Ruler
  • Elastic
