Anthropologie Inspired Elastic Band Ball

DIY Elastic Band Ball

Recently we were in Anthropologie, and my daughter saw an elastic ball that she loved.  It was cute, but then I looked at the price and the thing cost $15.  Immediately, I thought to myself, I can make that. Seriously, I just can’t pay $15 for a ball of elastics.

But the organizer in me saw an opportunity! When we want elastics for our hair, we can never, ever find them.  They get used as sling-shots by my son, the cat eats them or they just disappear somehow.

So when we got home, I dug out a styrofoam ball we had, and my daughter went on a house hunt for elastic bands.  Then we just wrapped the elastics around the ball, and voila!  All elastics are in one place!

  1. What?! First, who thought of the elastic ball idea, then who thought to sell it, and sell it at a ridiculous price!? And who would PAY that amount for it?! Yours is perfect – pretty and functional! 🙂
