Hey girls? A quick random question? What makes you feel beautiful?
I know that all women are eternally beautiful, but what is the certain thing that makes you feel that way?
For me is when I feel I’m wearing or using something right like a good skincare product or outfit or even small accessories but for sure good personality is on top all of that.
Speaking of accessories, do you have your favorite ones? What is it?
I like hair tie or hairband or scrunchie, I use hijab that’s why I need it so that my hair feels comfortable and doesn’t make my neck feel itchy and oily.
I know not all women like accessories but for this one even if you don’t like it but you still need it right? so choosing a good hairtie is a must to receive all the benefits.
Nowadays the weather is more unpredictable not like it used to be and you will increasingly need it especially in the summer. Those of you who have long and thick hair, of course, you will need it the most.
There’s a lot of types of hair ties or scrunchies sold all over the world, but it would be great if you could make it yourselves right?
You can decorate it with all the various things you like plus you can save your money to buy something else.
So in this post, I will show you how to make your own/DIY crochet scrunchie from a plain elastic band and yarn that will turn into a beautiful hair tie with a little cute bow for more visual eye catching which is also cozy to use.
This project only takes no more than 10 minutes only if you focus on doing it and are not bothered by other activities.
Without further do, let’s get started!
