Inside: How to Make No-Sew DIY Scrunchies
Let’s be honest, when the hair accessory trend of clips, bandanas, and scrunchies became popular again I was so excited. I mean I grew up with always having some type of hair flair going on. I would have to say clips and scrunchies were my go-to hair accessory of choice, always have been! So when the scrunchie game started gaining popularity I knew I needed to find some in fun colors and patterns.
I love all the different colors, styles, and sizes of scrunchies out there, but I wanted to make some that went perfectly with my style. Plus I didn’t want to spend $15 for a pack of 2, am I right? That is when I decided I needed to figure out a way to make my own!
Now, when it came to deciding how I wanted to make my DIY Scrunchies I knew I didn’t want to spend too much time or money. And although I know how to sew, I just didn’t feel like pulling out that big machine and eventually getting angry with my bobbin! #sewingstruggles Which means I needed to figure out an easy no-sew option and guess what?! It was the best decision ever! Let me show you how to make scrunchies no-sew!
What You Need for No-Sew Scrunchies
Like I said before, when it came to making DIY Scrunchies I was looking for the easiest and cheapest way possible. Here are some supplies you will need to create these fun scrunchies!
- Fabric – Each scrunchy calls for 4 1/2 inches X 22 inches of fabric
- Aleene’s Fabric Fusion Tape – This is so important, I am OBSESSED with this product! #notspon I literally use this for anything that I could sew but don’t want too.
- Safety Pin
Boom! That’s it ladies!
How to Make DIY Scrunchies No-Sew
Okay, now comes the fun part, well besides styling your hair in some cute accessories. Here is how to make DIY scrunchies no-sew!
- First start by cutting your fabric to 4 1/2 inches by 22 inches.
- I like to iron my fabric and fold down one long side, and one short side. It creates a more clean and finished look.
- Once you have your fabric piece cut and prepped take a piece of no-sew fabric tape and place it along the long folded side of the fabric strip.
- Then fold down the top to connect to the bottom, creating a tube.
- Now cut the elastic. My rule is to cut a piece that goes around your wrist comfortably.
- Pin the safety pin to one end of your elastic and feed through the fabric tube. This just helps you get your elastic through easily.
- Once the elastic is all the way through, unhook your safety pin and tie each end together tightly.
- Add another strip of no-sew tape around the rough edge of the tube and place into the finished end.
- Give everything a good squeeze to make sure it’s secure and ready to wear.
