Easy to make, you can have a scrunchy for every occasion. Sew them by hand with a running stitch or ask an adult to sew them for you, using a sewing machine. Thread them with elastic and decorate them imaginatively. Make scrunchies from ribbon, lace, velvet or dress fabric. A brightly colored toweling scrunchy would be good for the seaside or swimming pool.
