The scrunchie was all the rage in the ’90s and now it’s back. It is the ideal thing to use to put your hair up in a bun or ponytail. The best thing is that you can make them at home without much effort, with just recycled pieces of fabric, thread, and a needle.

5-Minute Crafts will show you a step-by-step guide to making your own scrunchies quickly and easily.

Materials:

  • Scissors
  • Needle
  • Sewing thread
  • Fabric scraps
  • Hair ties

Procedure:

  • Cut the fabric scraps into rectangles, according to the diameter of your hair ties.
  • If the hair ties are large, they can be 18 in x 6 in (45 cm × 15 cm) rectangles. If they are smaller, cut the rectangles in approximately 12 in x 5 in (30cm × 13 cm) rectangles.
  • Choose the appropriate rectangles and thread the hair ties inside of their corresponding scraps.
  • Bring the corners together and start sewing.
  • Sew along the edge around the fabric scrap with a basting stitch so that the fabric gathers.
  • Leave the end unstitched so you can turn the fabric inside out when finished.
  • Once finished, carefully flip the fabric over so the seams aren’t showing.

  • Sew the ends that are still loose.

  • Your scrunchie is ready! Now make a few different colors to match your clothes.
