This is what you need:
1. 2m of elastic cord. These are your normal rubber garter that can be purchased from sewing shops. If you grow up in a city all your life and never been to one, this will be tough task for you.

However, last weekend, I decided to experiment with the thinner cord for that "minimalist look like pro" look.
2. Stoppers - these could be purchased at the same place. You just have to be creative enough to tell the uncle/auntie what you looking for. Get the stoppers that suits your elastic cords. There are some that has two hole.
