While shopping for shoes for Vanessa, we came across a pair of slip on shoes with unique laces. When we inspected them more carefully my kids proclaimed that they were rubber ponytail holders. And I thought, I can do that! How fun to have shoe laces that you don’t have to tie?
So, I grabbed this pair of shoes that Christine decorated graffiti style ala Lil Blue Boo and stack of rubber ponytail holders in various colors.
Clip off the metal clasp.
Slip the rubber ponytail binders through the holes in the shoes and tie a knot at each hole.
Clip the rubber ponytail holders so that you only have a small tail. Then, add some hot glue to each end to keep the colored part from unraveling.
And they are ready to go!
When I was in elementary school, I used to tie my laces on the inside of my shoes, so the bows were hidden.
Did you tie your laces in a certain way when you were a child?
