Mama Bryna’s pretty way to make a beautiful tie band for your hair 1. CUT ABOUT 30 PIECES OF 1cm (3/8 inch) RIBBON ABOUT 15cm (6 inches) LONG. USING 2 TO 3 DIFFERENT COLOURS MAKE FOR A NICE LOOKING HAIR BOW 2. SEAL THE ENDS OF EACH STRIP TO STOP FRAYING. USE WHITE GLUE MIXED EQUAL AMOUNTS OF WATER. LEAVE FOR ABOUT HALF AN HOUR TO DRY

3. CENTRE A SMALL ELASTIC HAIR TIE ON ONE PIECE OF RIBBON 4. TIE THE RIBBON ROUND TIGHTLY THE ELASTIC HAIR TIE IN A SIMPLE GRANNY KNOT

5. TIE ANOTHER GRANNY KNOT TO MAKE THE RIBBON SECURE 6. THREAD ANOTHER DIFFERENT COLOURED RIBBON THROUGH THE HAIR TIE AND TIE OFF EXACTLY AS BEFORE. REPEAT THIS PROCESS USING THE DIFFERENT COLOURS ONE AFTER ANOTHER UNTIL YOU HAVE USED UP ALL THE RIBBON, OR FILLED UP THE HAIR TIE AND THERE IS NO MORE SPACE

7. USE ANY CONTRASTING COLOURS TO MAKE THE PRETTIEST HAIR BOWS. THEME THE COLOURS FOR THE SEASON, OF FOR A NATIONAL FESTIVAL 8. PERFECT FOR TYING BACK HAIR INTO A PONYTAIL, PLAIT OR PIGTAILS
