Fun With Buttons!

Fun with buttons is right! I have thick hair and can never find hair ties that will hold my hair back, unless they are way too ugly to wear. How do I solve that problem?? Make some of my own. This was totally easy, and I'm quite happy with how they turned out. . . I'll be making some more.

I started with a scrap of fabric and a button making kit from Hobby Lobby. . . Thirty seconds later I had my button!Next I tied the button to a plain ol' black elastic band. (please excuse my really zoomed in fingers in this pic.) I just used some thick black thread and tied it around a few times with a few good knots.
Ta-Dum!! Next step. . . try it out in my hair.
And look! A five minute craft that is cute, AND keeps my hair in place! Ah! Its gonna be a good day!
