How to DIY a No-Sew Scrunchie

So how do you make a hot glue gun scrunchie? I'll walk you through each step.

Or scroll to the end to see the quick how-to video.

Begin with a piece of fabric that is 4 1/2 inches by 22 inches.

On the short end of the fabric, add a line of glue along the edge.

Quickly, before the glue hardens, fold over the edge of the fabric on top of the glue. Repeat with other end.

Next, fold the fabric in half lengthwise, with the pattern on the inside.

Working in sections, place a bead of glue along the outer edge of one side of the fabric. Place the other side on top.

Continue all the way down the edge to create a tube.

Turn the tube right side out.

Cut a 10 inch piece of elastic. Insert it into the tube and tie the ends in a square knot. (Safety pins work great to weave the elastic through the fabric.)

To finish the scrunchie, insert one end inside the other. Add a few dabs of hot glue on both sides to secure.

That's it! Pretty easy right?!  If you like this share it with your scrunchie making friends.

How much fabric do I need for a scrunchie? 

My general rule of thumb is a piece of fabric that is 4 1/2 inches by 22 inches. 

So what if you're at the fabric store and don't know how much to get? Aim for 1/8 yard. You will be able to get two scrunchies from 1/8 of a yard. Another easy option is to pick up a fat quarter, which will yield 4 scrunchies.

Don't forget to pin it!
