Bling it up a notch.
Okay, okay, we know you like the elastic hair ties. Who wouldn’t? They’re so easy to DIY with your own sewing supplies – simple, inexpensive and super cute. Will you believe us if we tell you we’ve found a way to make them even better? Dritz elastic sliders!
So, you’ll cut your elastic to the desired length, but before you tie it, you’ll slide on some bling. The Dritz elastic sliders come in a package of two pieces: one round and one square. They work with Dritz 5/8″ ruffle, fold-over and glitter elastics. So if you’re looking for some decorative sparkle, it’s sliders for the win!
Besides sliders, there are many things you can do to jazz up your elastic hair ties. Add felt flowers or yarn flowers, or a decorative bow. And who says these have to be worn solely as hair ties? Bracelets anyone?
New Dritz elastics and sliders are just now arriving in your favorite fabric and craft stores; look for them in the sewing department. Check them out and start planning your spring accessories now – these little guys are great for prom, spring socials, graduation, Easter … you name it!
