Fancy up your hair tie {DIY tutorial}

Everyone has got some simple plain hair ties laying around at home. If it is not for yourself, it might be for your daughter(s). With a crochet hook and some yarn (cotton or acrylic, as you wish) you can quickly make your hair tie look more fancy and even match it with your outfit.
Have a look here at this easy pattern, after the jump. 
Ready in less than 15mins!!!

- cotton yarn
- hook 3mm
- yarn needle

- elastic hair tie


Round 1: Create sl st all around your hair tie so that the color of your hair tie is no longer visible, end the round with 1 sl st in 1st ch.
Round 2: ch1, 1sc in same loop, ch10, 1sc in next ch, *1sc in next ch, ch10, 1sc in next sc*, *-* repeat all around and end with a sl st in 1st sc. 
Finish off and weave in ends.

Happy crafting!
