Last time I wore a hair bobble (that’s apparently what they are called) it was 1998, the two balls were much smaller, I was much smaller and it had glitter in it.

You must remember these if you were a kid in the nineties. Speaking of kids, I made these oversized “stone” hair bobbles together with my kid, Lois. It was such an easy, fast, fun project for her with an actual wearable end product – which she got to proudly wear to school the next day.

Let’s talk about function; They make a tighter, smoother ponytails because you wrap them around your hair instead of having to pull your hair through it a couple of times.
So great for fine, slippery hair like mine or really thick long hair like Lois has. (Bonus point is that my mini ponytail looks a bit more substantial surrounded by the big spheres in stone and marble textures)









/ 01
Mix, cut up, blend the clay into stone and marble-like patterns and roll it into spheres of different sizes.

/ 02
Pierce your clay balls with the straw. Not right through the center but at about 1/4 of the ball. You’ll get a nice round cutout for the elastic to go through later.

/ 03
Bake them in the oven according to the instructions on the packaging of the Fimo clay.

/ 04
Cut off a 22cm string of elastic, lace through the balls and make a tight knot. Hide the knot by pulling one of the balls over it, so that it becomes secure and doesn’t move around.
