Supplies:

  • Fabric of your choice
  • Large button making kit
  • Scissors
  • Elastic
  • Pen

alt

Stick the end of the hair elastic through the small loop on the back of the back piece from the button kit

alt

Now make a knot by pulling the button piece through the middle of the loop

alt

Pull it tight into a knot

alt

Do the same with another back button piece so you have two sharing the same elastic

 

alt

Cut out a piece of fabric 1/2 inch wider than the button piece. If it's a thin fabric make a double layer

alt

With the white button piece on bottom, you'll add the fabric piece and the button top piece all stacked on top of each other. In order from left to right above.

alt

Push the button top piece in hard.

alt

Now place the button bottom piece (attached to the elastic) on top, and push the button pusher really hard into it.

alt

When it snaps, pull it out and you're done with one side!

alt

Do the same with the other side and you're done! Tie in in your hair the same way you would a normal elastic
