The children and I made these pretty ponytail holders. They are so easy. You can use ribbon, tulle, or strips of fabric. We used a little of everything. With the strips of fabric we used pinking shears to cut out the strips to help prevent the raveling of the fabric. Cut the strips 12 to 14 inches long and 1/2 an inch wide for thicker matierals and you can go up to an inch wide for thin materials, like tulle and ribbon. Use anywhere from five to seven strips per pony. Tie them on, spread them about a 1/8th to a 1/4 of an apart, and you're done. You can make one to coordinate with every one of your little girl's outfits. Moms can wear them, too.
