I am fortunate to live along the coast and I often visit the beaches around here. Often times I will find shells like these that are half worn down by the ocean. Don’t pass over them! They’re perfect for making quick and easy DIY shell hair ties! If you do not live near a beach, check out thrift stores or yard sales for shells worn down like these. You’ll also need hair ties, I got mine from the dollar store.
You will want to pinch one end of the hair tie and ease it through the hole and push it through the spiral inside. I find it easiest to work from top of the shell downward and out at the bottom.
Some shells will be trickier than others to feed the hair tie through, but I’ve done all of these with fairly minimal effort. Once you have the hair tie pulled through, you will want to stick one end of the loop of the hair tie into the other end and pull it tight.
Tada, your shell hair tie is now done and ready to adorn your hair (or whatever else you want to tie it to). These are not only decorative, but you can also do some great witchy things with them like inscribing a sigil inside the shell.
