How-To Hair Tie Made into Ring

These vintage hair ties are cool but they are old and the elastic is no longer good
I thought they would make great rings
Heres How I Did It!
 First Cut Off the Old Elastic
 Make a Coil Spring From Wire about 2 inches in length
26 gauge wire works great
Use the wire curler to create the coil 
 Leave About 1 inch uncoiled wire on both ends to use in attaching to base

 Attach the wire to the back base of the ring

Do the same with the other side of the wire coil

Its pretty easy and the great thing about using a spring back for the ring makes it adjustable!

I graduated from FSU with a degree in Apparel Design and combined my love for vintage with my love for dress making in youthanizeing vintage garbs. I have always had a passion for the eras before me since I can remember. The daughter of my father who collects and restores old classic cars and my mother who filled her home with the most fascinating antiques, I guess it just seemed natural.
