Braided Hair Tie

Hair ties pull out chunks of your hair when trying to get them out. That’s why we created the perfect hair tie.



*T-shirt (stretchier the better!)

*A stick or large marker


  1. Lie the t-shirt flat on the ground. Cut off the bottom seam and with the remaining material cut two strips about one inch wide.
  2. Cut off all seems and stretch out the strips
  3. Gather four strips and put them on top of each other behind the stick.
  4. Braid all four strips together and pull tight.
  5. Stop when you have two inches left.
  6. Tie the ends into a loose knot.
  7. Remove stick and slip knot through the hole where the stick was.

  1. Cut a four to five-inch strip from an old white t-shirt.
  2. Using the eraser end of a pencil, dip it in gold paint and make polka dots on the strip.
