DIY Chevron Hair Ties

Have you noticed these hair ties ALL over lately!? And I mean A-L-L over! Last night I was even at Old Navy, and they had them! You got 3 there for around $4. FOUR DOLLARS!? I was shocked, because they are SO easy and inexpensive to make! If you know where to go! 
The Etsy shop Hairbow Supplies Etc. is literally your one stop shop for all things hair bow! And that's where this super cute elastic came from! Isn't the chevron print to die for!? They don't just have chevron though, they have glitter and polka dot too! (coming up in another post!) 
These hair ties are so easy to make... here's how you do it!

You need two things...
Elastic & Scissors.
You can handle that... right? ;)
Here's the hard part... ;) 
Cut your elastic into 8 inch strips, fold in half, and tie ends in a knot.
THATS IT!
You can get 9 hair ties out of a yard, so suppose you bought THIS pack of elastic... you could make FOURTY FIVE hair ties!! for $3! 
That will make you think twice about paying $4 for 3 elastics! Now, won't it! ;)

Ok, don't laugh, but what's the big deal about these hair ties? I see them everywhere. Is there something special about them compared to a regular elastic?

I love these! I'm expecting a little boy right now though so I don't think I'll be making any very soon :)
