Halloween Elastic hair bands and Video



Hi all!  today I have a little helper my Daughter Shaelyn, who felt we had to make you a video on how to make these super easy Hair Bands.  With two girls in the house who love these bands, it only made sense to find the elastic online and try and make some.  Of course, my mind goes right to Halloween hair bands, so here is what I came up with......

the first one is just a piece of 3 x 4' inch cardboard covered with our Howlstooth and Scaringbone designer series paper, the second design is one of those Ikea jars filled with the hair bands and topped with a rossette stamped with a cute pumpkin from the Spooky Bingo Bits set

There have been lots of emails where I ordered these here it is....

  1. I like those hair bands. I have long hair so I use those a lot. I like the disclaimer about using the lighter. :o) Where do you get elastic by the yard like that?
