Easy craft project for organizing hair scrunchies

Hola lovelies! Today, I want to show you a fun, fast craft project that will help keep your hair scrunchies corralled in one place.

If you’re anything like me, it’s hard to tell where you might find hair scrunchies lurking around the house … around a baby doll’s neck … on the dog’s tail (yes, this happened) … on the bathroom floor next to the, ahem, toilet … in a toolbox in the basement … they could truly be anywhere.

Fortunately, I’ve discovered an easy way (yes, it MUST be easy because, let’s face it, I’m lazy) to keep a good quantity of them together.

I started with a piece of cardboard I had lying around the house. I trimmed it to look like this:

I grabbed some spray adhesive, scissors and cheap ribbon that I bought at Ollie’s Outlet.

I sprayed the cardboard with the adhesive and spread it around.

Tip: A little bit of this 3M Hi-Strength 90-grade spray adhesive goes a looooonngg way. It also gets easier to work with about 2-3 minutes after spraying (when it’s tacky, not soaking wet).

I trimmed a few small pieces of ribbon and adhered them to the top and bottom of the cardboard piece. Then I started wrapping the ribbon around the rest of the cardboard until the whole thing was covered.

Oh. By the way, I discovered why the ribbon was so cheap. I had to use different patterns to complete my project. If I had it to do over, I would make sure I bought enough ribbon to cover it all in one pattern. Yes, I realize my name is not Captain Obvious.

Here is the final result.

Total time spent on this project: 20 minutes.

Do you have 20 minutes today that you could devote to gettin’ your creative juices flowing?

    Great idea! I’m using it! Any ideas for my daughter’s hair bands?!?

      Glad you liked it! Not sure about the hair bands. I’ll have to think about that …

      • Heather says:

        Couldn’t you do this with a larger piece of cardboard for the headbands?

        • Susan says:

          Absolutely! This is one of my all-time-favorite crafts. Although, with a larger piece of cardboard, you may have an issue with it losing strength and bending or breaking over time.

      Oatmeal canister? Paper towel tube?

        Actually, I just cut off a piece of the flap from a large cardboard box. You’ll need a pretty thick, straight piece so it will keep its shape and not bend after lots of use. I seriously do use and love this thing … no more hunting all over the place for scrunchies (although my daughter snatches them sometimes and uses them as collars on her stuffed animals’ necks).
