An adorable DIY Hair Tie Valentine that is inexpensive to make and easy to put together – the perfect non-candy Valentine for your child’s to give!
With Valentine’s around the corner, there’s always room for another fun Valentine DIY. Every mom of girls knows that hair ties are a must for any girl-populated household.
(And every mama knows that there is no such thing as too many hair ties!)
With 4 girls in my house, hair ties are a hot commodity. Though we have piles of them, they seem to disappear faster than ever. Really though — where do hair ties “hide”?” They might just be as bad as socks… that never find their true pair once they hit the laundry.
These hair ties are popular with girls of all ages. While you can typically find them at boutiques and Etsy shops, they are super simple to make yourself. All you really need is a letter-size piece of paper, scissors, 5/8″ elastic and a cheap lighter.
Follow our tutorial to make these fun no crease hair ties as part of this DIY Valentine, too!
