This unique hair tie craft idea turns one scrunchie into many scrunchies. Change the appliqué to match the day, your mood, or your outfit.
Scrunchies look especially good in a ponytail up high on the head. Slip the ponytail through this wearable craft, twist the scrunchie, and slip the ponytail through again.
What You'll Need:
- Lightweight fabric, 8x30 inches
- 6-inch elastic, 1/4 inch wide
- Large snap, #3
- Heart appliqué
How to Make Snap-on Scrunchie Hair Tie:
Step 1: Fold fabric in half lengthwise so right sides are touching. Sew a seam 1/4 inch from the edge to form a tube.
Step 2: Fold sides of seam down and iron so they lie flat. At one end of tube, fold edge back approximately 1/2 inch and iron so it lies flat to form a hem.
Step 3: Turn tube right side out. Attach large safety pin to end of elastic and use it to help feed elastic through the tube.
Step 4: Remove the safety pin. Overlap ends of elastic approximately 1/2 inch and sew them together.
Step 5: Insert unhemmed end of tube approximately 1/2 inch into hemmed end of tube. Use a large pin to hold ends of tube in place and then sew them securely together.
Step 6: Sew female half of snap to scrunchie, across from the seamed end. Sew male half of snap to heart appliqué.You can accent this scrunchie with a different snap-on every day. Always attach the female half of the snap to the scrunchie and the male half to the button, novelty, or appliqué.
Achieve a fresh look for every holiday party you attend by using different fabrics and different snap-ons.
