Fold-over elastic (FOE) hairties were new to me until a couple months ago when I saw them popping up on Pinterest and Etsy. And since then I’ve seen these cute, ribbon hair ties in Old Navy, Sephora, Rexall… the list goes on.
Sure, they are cute, easy on your hair and won’t leave a crease but I can’t believe how expensive they are in-store. A friend (Hi Erin!) tipped me off to an Etsy supplier who sold the FOE ribbon in bulk and a diy project was born!
The project is very simple and the results are fabulous.
Next, I took the clear nail polish to the raw edges of the ribbon to prevent future tearing and voila – a beautiful set of ribbon hair ties.
The total cost of this project was $9 and I was able to create 20 hair ties. To compare, the Sephora Set is $13 and you are only purchasing 8 hair ties.
