Guest Post - Along for the Ride

Hello A Little Knick Knack Readers! I'm Laura from along for the ride. I really want to thank Megan for inviting me over while she is on vacation.

I recently got bangs cut and I've been wearing my hair in a ponytail a lot. I used to wearing a lot of flower clips in my hair but they don't look quite right anymore. But I still wanted to wear a flower in my hair! Today I'm going to show you how to make pretty flower ponytail holders.

You will need fabric, felt, hot glue, and a ponytail holder. That's it!

Start by cutting out two strips of fabric. Not too think, 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.


So easy and so cute!!


Thanks again Megan for having me! It would make my day if you all popped over to my blog and said hi! I also host a weekly party called Saturday is Crafty Day. I'd love to see you there!
