Today Uncommon designs has swapped places with Laura from the blog Along for the Ride. It is such a sweet blog that blends a little craftiness with a lot of inspiration. Today she is sharing a fabulous tutorial for creating Fabric Flower Ponytail Holders.
As you know, I recently got bangs cut and so I’ve been wearing my hair in a ponytail a lot. I love wearing flower clips in my hair but they don’t look quite right anymore, so I got creative.
Today I’m going to show you how to make pretty Fabric Flower Ponytail Holders…
- Fabric of Choice
- Hot Glue
- Ponytail Holder
Start by cutting out two strips of fabric. Not too thick, not too thin. I didn’t measure nor did I really cut straight. I just kind of went for it.
Then tie a knot at the end of your two strips.
To make the flower, all you do is twist and turn the fabric around the knot hot gluing while you go.
It doesn’t need to be perfect. And I have never made two exactly alike.
Keep wrapping and your flower will get bigger.
When you run out of fabric hot glue the little tail to the back of the flower (will be the side you were looking at while you were wrapping as this is the side that usually has the most glue on it).
Next, glue the ponytail holder to the back of the flower. In the meantime, cut out a circle of felt that is a bit smaller than your flower. Glue that over the ponytail holder to the back of the flower.
