12 Not your Ordinary hair tie

Where do all my hair ties go? I have NO idea!!!
I swear I have a little hair tie obsessed ghost in my house.  
They disappear like crazy around here!
 What I do have is a bunch of dingy white shirts around my house. 
Remember I live in a house full of dirty, stinky dudes. 
So I decided to put them to use...

Need: Old White shirt, scissors, kool-Aid & Water
1. Cut into a thin strip
2. Mix Kool-Aid with hot water. I used about 1/2 a cup of water & the entire packet of Kool-Aid.
3. Soak into mixture. I was going for a pale yellow, so I soaked it for about 10min. 
(For a darker color soak longer)
4. Wash & let it air dry. Then tie that shhhhnazzy little hair tie any way you want.
So easy & very fun to play with! 
What do you think? 
Happy Wednesday y'all!

  3. I never would have thought to use koolaid to color with, but it really does make a lovely color. Clever idea!

  4. So cool!!!! I'll definitely have to try this soon :)

  5. That's a cute idea! And you're right about those hair ties...always disappearing! In my house, combs too! Which is weird because I'm the only one with hair...
