When my friend and I went to a craft show last weekend, there was a booth that everyone was running to. They were selling Hair Twisters.
I had never seen them before, have you? The girls there were absolutely grabbing them up! I knew I had to try and make some, so when we got home, I made a trip to Hobby Lobby for polymer clay.
The hardest part was getting the clay soft enough to work with. Then I started rolling and rolling until it was the size I wanted. That piece was probably 2 feet long (or maybe a little longer).
I wanted to add a charm, so I made a loop at one end.
Use a pencil and start coiling the clay around it. It's kind of tricky getting the pencil back out, but work with it slowly and it will come out.
Then bake in a 300 degree oven for 10 minutes and let cool.
Now you can add charms or beads if you want.
To put it in your hair, grab a section of hair and start twisting it around. It stays in perfectly! If it starts to slip, you need to grab a bigger section of hair.
I can't wait for Jordyn to see them this weekend, they'll be so cute in her long hair!
I'll be joining these parties this week.
