UP-Cycling...My New Hair Tie

by Ryan Kelly

One would think being the daughter of a recycling company owner (at one time) - that I would be a 'green' person. Not quite. So, when I DO re-cycle - rather, UP-cycle....I tend to pat myself on the back. Just a bit:) I clipped this idea out of a magazine - had success with it - and therefore, HAD to share.


  • Tights (preferably a pair that is run - and you can no longer wear) - after all, that's how we UP-cycle
  • Scissors

First, snip off the toes of the tights. Then, cut the legs into 3-to 8-inch sections. (If you have thicker hair, you will want to cut a larger section.
