Spring flowers are starting to bloom and I am in the mood to make some “girlie garnish”! (aka Ponytail Holders) So, today’s craft is sweet and simple.

Add some spring to your hair with these easy to make ponytail holders.

This project is for all levels.

Skill Level- 1 Button


  • hair elastic
  • felt
  • pom pom

Basic Instructions:

  1. Cut your felt into a circle with a 2 1/4″ circumference.  (You can see, I cut a few!)
  2. Fold circle in half and stitch down the center. Be sure to back stitch at start and stop.
  3. To attach your pony: fold pony in half and place about 3/16″ from the folded edge.  Machine stitch in place.  Go back and forth a few times to secure in place.  Tip- Keep the pony tight together.
  4. This step is optional.  If you have pinking sheers and would like a detailed edge, now is the time to cut around the outside of circle.
  5. Trim the short edge of pony.
  6. Fold circle into quarters and trim the point off the center.  Open back up; slip pony through the hole.
  7. Turn up the felt and over towards other side.  This will clean finish the raw edge of pony and hide all of your stitches.
  8. Shape flower center with your fingers; add a dab of clear drying glue to the center and drop in pom pom.   Let dry and you are all set.
