I love the crystalline hair ties from Anthropologie! They are such an effortless way to dress up a ponytail! I have made the Emi Jay-style hair ties before and figured out an easy way to add some glam to a plain hair tie, here’s how:

You will need:

  • Beads, Satin Flowers, or Pendants
  • 5/8” Fold Over Elastic (cut in 9 -9.5” pieces)
  • Nylon Fishing Line
  • Felt
  • Hot Glue Gun
  • Crimp Beads*
  • Jewelry Crimp Tool*** Optional

PENDANT TIE

Cut two pieces of felt for the base of the pendant, don’t take it all the way to the edge, but make sure there’s enough felt to adhere to the base.

If you can manage, sew the pendant onto one of the pieces of felt. This is just an extra way to secure it and not necessary. If you cannot sew the pendant on, hot glue it to one piece of felt. {See where I hand-sewed the pendant on to the right side of the large center gem?}

Next, hot glue the hair tie in between the felt connected to the pendant and the remaining felt like a sandwich.

FLOWER TIE

Create a bead cluster for the center of the flower. (Instead of tying off the fishing line, I like to use a crimp bead for extra durability.)

Hand sew it to the center of the flower.

hair-tie-8

Cut to small circles of felt out, big enough to go across the entire width of the hair tie.

Glue flower to one piece of felt, then hot glue the hair tie in between the felt connected to the flower and the remaining felt.

BEAD CLUSTER TIE

Create a large bead cluster around the hair tie. (Instead of tying off the fishing line, I like to use a crimp bead for extra durability.)
(**If you’re making your own hair ties you can also thread the elastic through the center of the finished bead cluster and then tie the end which may be easier.)

And now you have some dressed-up hair ties! The perfect way to fancy up any hair style, and not too shabby to wear on your wrist either….
