The Amour Pony Holder lets you dress up any ‘do without the extra effort. So elegant and romantic, you’ll never reach for your boring plain elastic again.
Chain nose pliers
Aubergine faux leather trim
Elastic hair tie
Large gold crimp
Gather your tools and materials. You’ll need scissors and a pair of jewelry pliers to complete the project.
Find the center of your cord.
Place the center of the cord and the elastic hair tie on one side of the large gold crimp.
Using your pliers, push down one side of the crimp, enclosing the trim and elastic.
With a bit of strength, start to bend over the middle of the crimp with your pliers, pushing the crimp over onto itself with your fingers.
When it looks about like this, snap it closed with your pliers, over the other folded side.
Tie a knot at the end of both sides of trim.
Snip off any excess trim to even them out.
