DIY Ribbon Alternative – Elastic Gift Band

All you need is some elastic, doesn’t matter the width, and some felt circles to make this cute elastic gift band. Its been so fun wrapping gifts this year, well I should say watching my daughter wrap gifts. She comes home from school everyday asking what she can wrap. We have tried to stay with recycling and have made a lot of the gift ties and bows(that’s coming tomorrow).

1.Gather up some elastic and felt(cut in circles, size of your choice).

2. Cut the elastic to the size you want, then machine stitch the ends together.

3. Using a needle and thread, sew on the circles by hand, remember the circles will touch when sewing them on.

And that’s it, simple and fun!

Sorry I didn’t have any photos of the sewing process but its fairly simple to figure out.
