Disney Cruise Inspired DIY Hair Ties using Fold Over Elastic

Going on a Disney cruise? Make your own Disney cruise inspired DIY Hair Ties using fold over elastic with this easy to follow tutorial.

I was so excited to get the email inviting me to the 2017 Disney Social Media Moms Celebration. After attending last year’s celebration, the kids haven’t stopped talking about Disney.

Needless to say, we are so excited to be going back!

But what makes this year’s celebration different from prior celebrations is the element of a Disney cruise! We’ve been on plenty of cruises over the years, but never a Disney cruise, y’all and we’re so incredibly excited.

While we are preparing for our trip, we’ve been busy crafting in the background. It’s always a good idea to keep the kids busy as you count down the days. (If you need a Disney countdown, you can print this free Days Until Disney printable. My kids have loved writing a lower number each day.)

With girls, hair ties are almost always a necessity. With this easy tutorial, you can make your own Disney cruise inspired DIY hair ties using fold over elastic.

Disney Cruise Inspired DIY Hair Ties

These Disney Cruise Inspired DIY Hair Ties are perfect for your upcoming Disney cruise vacation. Plus, they're perfect for gifting in the Fish Extender Program.

Materials:

Instructions:

Using a ruler and scissors, cut fold over elastic into 9″ strips (that’s how long the Goody ones are). If you have really thin hair, you could cut the fold over elastic shorter. (I would try one and knot it before cutting multiples of the same size to see if it works for your hair.)

Since this is our very first Disney cruise we are trying to participate in all we can. One of the cool things about a Disney cruise, that I haven’t experienced with other cruise lines, is the Fish Extender program. It isn’t run by Disney, but by Disney fans like you and I.

If you want to know more about Fish Extenders, click here! The very short version is that you join a group of other families cruising on the same ship and you exchange gifts throughout the cruise. What you gift and how many times you gift is completely up to you.

So I’ll be using some of these Disney cruise inspired DIY hair ties as fish extender gifts for all the young girls in my Fish Extender group. After I tied them all, I put them on a piece of white cardstock and used my Silhouette Cameo sketch pens to put our names on them.

    I love this type of hair tie! They don’t create kinks in my hair like other hair ties. I have never made my own though.

    These will be such nice gifts to the people in your Fish Extenders group. It’s always nice to have extra hair ties!

    After two daughters how did I not know fold over elastic existed?! I can not live without that awesome black and gold anchor print.

    Wow! I didn’t know how easy these were to make yourself. I’ve seen them for high dollars at the store. I’ll have to makes some for my girls. I’d also love to hop aboard a Disney Cruise soon. We’ve been to the parks several times, but haven’t tried a cruise yet. It’s next on my list though!

    Use a lighter and go over the edges lightly. It’ll seal them so it’s smooth and won’t fray!

    This is really nice. These hair ties look very cute.

    I could always use some hair ties. And if it’s Disney, then it’s that much better. I am really liking this idea.

    These are really great! My girls asked me last week to make these type of elastics on youtube so we are going to be making some soon. I love that these are Disney cruise inspired! So cute.

    These are adorable hair ties and super easy to make. I would have to make them a bit larger as my 4 year old cousin has a lot of hair but this would be fun for her! I would love for my family to go on a Disney Cruise together.

    These are so cute! I never realized how easy it would be to make these sort of hair ties. I have a few of them and love them. I would love to go on a Disney cruise. Seems like it would be so much fun.
