This is such a simple idea and lots of fun for little girls to make their own. Have a good search through your button box and see what you can find to make these super easy hair ties.

Total Time: 5 minutes


  • buttons with a shank
  • elasticated ponytail bands
  • optional nail varnish or acrylic paint


  1. Choose buttons with a shank - that is ones with a loop at the back rather than holes.
  2. Find an elasticated pony band that will fit through the shank.
  3. Loop one end through the other.
  4. And you have your new fancy hair tie.
  5. If you don't like the colour of your button, or if it is scratched like this one, you can paint it with nail varnish or acrylic paint.
  6. This big beautiful button needed an extra thick band to hold it.
