Planet Mermaid scrunchies are so popular amongst our mermaid fans that we thought we would show you how you can make a scrunchie all by yourself!
You can choose your own pattern or patterns depending on how many you wish to make! They would also make great presents for your friends and family. With Christmas coming up what could be more of a perfect gift than an original made by yourself!
What you need:
Measure out your scrunchie pattern and cut into two long pieces. Next knot a piece of elastic together so that it makes a loop.
Turn one of the pieces of scrunchie material inside out and sew the ends together.
Next take your second scrunchie pattern and do the same.
Bring both pieces of material together and loop the elastic band around.
Next turn the edges until you see the scrunchie pattern and fan the material around the elastic. Sew the edges either using the sewing machine or by hand with a needle and thread, making sure the stitches are neat and tight.
Sew all around until the whole of the outside of the scrunchie has been sewn up. Do not rush this stage as it will affect the end result!
Once the scrunchie is completely sewn up and secure remove any excess thread.
You are almost there; all you need to do now is fan out your scrunchie
Your end result should look like the image above.
We hope this has given you lots of inspiration to start making your own. To make it easier we have also downloaded the full video on YouTube - "How to make a mermaid scrunchie hair accessory" so you can watch it as many times as you need.
Good luck and get creating!
