1. Get your materials ready

To add the earrings, you’ll need some pliers and an earring kit with jump rings and fish hooks.

2. Make the DIY scrunchie earrings

Create a lovely puff-type structure from the scrunchie by looping it into an infinity sign and folding it together, as shown.

Basically, you will be reducing its size in diameter and increasing it in height. 

Simple DIY earrings

To hold the scrunchie together, go ahead and manually sew one side and the two layers together. 

Opening up jump ring

With your pliers, open up the jump ring and loop it around the side you have sewn together. Then, with your pliers, close the gap.

Then, connect another jump ring to the first and close the gap, making sure it’s tightly closed.

4. Add embellishments

Ok, so here’s the fun part. It’s time to take your basic DIY earrings to the next level by adding some super cool embellishments.

I chose some lovely gold studs, but feel free to use beads, pearl. Whatever your heart desires, really. 

Embellishing scrunchie earrings DIY

Manually sew your embellishments onto the scrunchie’s fabric. Add some all around the scrunchie so that they are evenly distributed.

You can add as much as you like. Be sure to repeat this whole process for the second earring!

    Cute. I think trying to create a simpler version of this idea would provide fun and creative ways for young girls (like my 7yr old granddaughter) to rid themselves of the mounds of scrunchies and hair ties that they never wear!
