just a quick recyling craft;-D
I saw something like this on an online shop and thought woooow that's smart!!!!!
The one that was on sale was made of a champo bottle.
But mine is made of a bleach agent bottle , it was just empty so I thought why not giving it a try for the rest of you as well.
At first i would use an other closuring but... it didn't worked out.
Then i thought why not using rubberbands for your hair. and making a button of the bottle it self;-D
I hope you like it, and of course everybody can make it more fashion then i did;-D
and you can use this too for a wrapping gift as well;-D

thank you very much for stopping by;-=D

It looks very professional not at all like you made it yourself! Dat vind ik echt een superslim idee, deze ga ik maken! De plastic knoop ga ik vervangen door een echte, ik heb zo'n mega retro knoop liggen waar ik er maar één van heb en dit is het perfecte project ervoor. Thanks Jet!
