DIY: Elastic Hair Ties

My sister is getting married in four short months. She asked me to help her come up with a clever way to ask her bridesmaids to be in the wedding. 

I found this elastic on Etsy (check out their shop here!) & thought it would be the perfect way to ask the girls to be apart of her big day. I ordered the elastic in her wedding colors, which will be gold & plum.

Step one: Cut elastic nine inches long. 

Step two: Tie it on the ends. 

Step three: Cut ends of the elastic at an angel.  

Step four: Use a lighter to singe the edges of the elastic. 

That’s it. It’s that easy to make your own elastic hair ties… & you can be insanely creative with them as well!

I used stamps to write “WILL YOU BE MY” & decorated it with a few random stamps I had. Not only can the girls use them for their hair but they can wear them as bracelets as well. 

What are some other creative things you did for your bridesmaids? How did you ask them to be in your wedding?
