DIY Hair Ties

{Chain Hair Tie DIY}

I was so inspired by Jenni’s chain hair ties from I Spy DIY that I decided to recreate them myself.  They were so simple to make and so chic that I may never use a normal hair tie again.  I went out and bought a chain necklace for $1, a few hair ties, and grabbed some pliers from my basement.  Using the pliers, I separated eleven links from the necklace.  Then, I opened the first and last links and reattached them to the hair tie (as shown).  Finally, I folded the hair tie in half and wore it around my wrist. Amazing.

This  holiday season I created the week long Ultimate Holiday Gift Guide and get this… all gifts under $100. Also, today just so happens to be Cyber Monday, so who knows, maybe you’ll be able to score these holiday hostess gifts for even cheaper!

It is hard to find the perfect gift for everyone on your list so starting today, for a full week, I will be posting perfect presents for different types of personalities (for girls and guys) and where to buy them. How awesome, right?
