MY DIY | Chain Hair Tie


Happy Monday! I always have a hair tie on my wrist, but never love how they look in the mix of my bangles. To fix the situation added a bit of chain to my hair ties to disguise them in my bracelet stack. Details after the break, and stay tuned for a hair tutorial with my jazzed up elastics tomrw! 

What you need:
Goody Hair ties
Jewelry Pliers
What to do:
Using a small piece of chain open the first and last link
Connect to your hair tie and close link
Fold the hair tie in half and wear around your wrist

    Awesome, I’ve been looking for a way to wear chain like this for ages but to be honest it scares me a little and because I don’t wear many statement pieces I’d definitely get comments. But this is perfect, a really great balance.
    Thanks for the post x

  35. I will definitely try this – I only have about 100 hair ties and a Michael’s Craft Store gift card 🙂
    They look like something you’d buy in a store, so that just shows your talent. And this is the first time I’m reading your blog, and I’m loving it.

    How how does it work as an actual hair tie? Pull hair? Chain dangling around? Impossible to twist around a pony?

  37. Fenja says:

    Does anybody know a good place to get those chains?

  38. Great idea ! I can’t wait to try it..
