When it comes to hair accessories, I've worn, (ahem, *nested*) everything from flowers, to tinsel, to feathers, and even tiny birds in my hair. My philosophy is that my hair's already crazy curly, whats the difference if I add something else in there? :)
A couple months ago, I was gifted these incredible boxes from For The Makers. Now, I work for a subscription box company so I know a bit about them, but the For The Makers boxes are truly awesome. If you sign up, each month you'll get supplies for four projects delivered to your door. Although their price point is a bit steep, $29/mo, the things they include in the boxes to make are incredible.

Alternatively, you can slip superglue into the spring end cap or you can do away with it all together and just stitch the elastic to the rhinestone chain ends. The spring end caps definitely make it look a little fancier. :)
And that's it!
