My daughter has been into scrunchie hair ties with bows lately and we thought we'd try making some of our own from reclaimed clothing from the donation pile.
Scrunchies With a Bow
We began with a piece of reclaimed fabric. This one had a slight sparkle to it, we cut one part into a square and another into a long strip to hold elastic. It helps if you use fabric like this polyester that doesn't fray because we did not hem any of these pieces.
I stretched out a piece of elastic and used Sure Bonder fabric glue to attach the ribbon to the strip of fabric.
I attached the elastic to the fabric and then folded it over and added more glue to close the seam.
I pulled the elastic tight and tied a knot at the end.
I then used the square piece of fabric and folded two corners to the center. I then tied this piece in a knotaround the elastic scrunchie covering the seam where the elastic came together.
The scrunchie was that easy to make so we made a few more.
The sparkly scrunchie with a bow is so easy to make and they look adorable!
You can use different fabrics from your donation pile for the bow and as a short cut, just add the bows to pre-made scrunchies.
