Hairties 101

You’ve all seen these right?


(How is it that when you take 7 photos of the top of your head the best looking on a) has your arm in it and b) is the first one you take???)

Probably the most simple proportionate to gratifying craft project ever.

There’s been a flurry of push pin related crafting activity in the last wee while around the blogosphere, and since I don’t have a glue gun (or a pin board- but that’s another story) this has gotta be the next best thing.

The instructions to make the buttons are on the back of the packet. Or you can use cute vintage buttons with shanks. Or cure new buttons with shanks. (We like to be inclusive here!)

Then thread your hairtie through. If you have think hair that busts hairties like me, thread through two hairties!


::: Put the hairtie halfway through ::: Stick one half through the loop the other half makes ::: Pull tight :::


Make three more!

(For once I had everything I needed in the house. No going out for a packet of recoverable buttons or handful of hairties. Yay!)

 And when I get a new camera, blog posts will have in focus photos, so you can see what is going on.

    So great! Too bad my hair’s too short to tie back…

    Can’t wait till the camera’s up and running 🙂

    these are so pretty! i made some a bit like these, but they didn’t work out nearly as well.
    I think i need to follow your elastic-tying directions. 🙂
    and well done with taking the photo of the back of your head! impressive.
