3. Divide strands into 3 groups of 8 strands each and braid the groups together for 17 in. (43 cm). Fold the strands at end of braid around the hair elastic and hold in place with the binder clip.
4. Cut a strand of red yarn about 20 in. (51 cm) long and wrap tightly around the strands above the clip. Remove clip. Thread yarn ends (3-4 at a time) into blunt needle and draw ends under wrap to hide.
