All you need for this project is a pair of sharp scissors and an old pair of tights.

Step 2: Cut

Avoiding parts of the tights with holes (runs are generally fine if they aren't too big), cut 1 1/2 to 2-inch wide pieces.

Step 3: Roll

Using your fingertips, roll the tights up so that they form a ring.

That's all there is to it! These hair elastics provide a gentle hold.

If you prefer a stronger hold you can either use thicker tights or use a wider section for a thicker elastic.
