Hi everyone! It’s Sarah back for another guest post. Ellen keeps telling me that I should start my own blog. My creativity mode has its own manic-depressive personality, so there may be periods of time that I don’t accomplish a thing. I know I would get a “blog fog block” occasionally (also known as BFB, because if you try to say “blog fog block” a few times, it turns into a tongue twister). For now, as long as my creativity is in the manic mode, and Ellen allows me to guest post once in a while, all is well. :c)
Today I wanted to share some tie dye ponytail holders. Here is a great tutorial on how to make them. I kind of took the easy way out and bought some dye in premixed spray bottles at Hobby Lobby.
I used 5/8 inch wide white fold-over elastic and started randomly spraying the elastic.
Let dry. This type of dye requires to either heat press with an iron or heat set in the dryer. I chose the latter. Cut into desired length. I cut mine in 12 inch pieces. Knot ends together. I like to leave some short tails. I cut the ends at an angle and applied Fray Check to prevent raveling.
I also made a few with colored elastic, so no dyeing was needed. See the brown one below with a few of the sprayed ones.
Thanks again, Ellen! Love ya!
Linking to these great parties!
