Project 6 - Ozark Ponytail Holder

This is another super easy no-knit project. My friend Vanina, over at
http://mothercrafterdiy.com, is modeling the pony tail holder, as I don't have enough hair for it.
This would be a great holiday gift for the adventurous. Plus, it only takes a few minutes to make!

Later this week, there will be a tutorial for this, with lots of photos. In the meantime, here are some simple instructions.
1. Gather scissors, a hair band and some Ozark Handspun yarn. This is a great way to use up the odds and ends pieces of yarn you have. It would also be great mixed with other yarns or ribbons. 
2. Cut 5-8 lengths of yarn varying from 8-12 inches long.
3. Fold one piece of yarn in half. Put the folded end inside the hair band.
4. Pull the two cut ends around the hair band and through the folded end. Pull tight. Repeat.
