A FASHION FRIDAY DIY

I’ve been wanting to share this easy DIY with you all for awhile! It’s such a simple idea and really easy to do. I have give credit to my friend Becca for this one – this was her idea so bunch of us got together and made some of these cute hair wraps.

The great thing about these is that there’s WIRE in them so you can create whatever shapes you want and it stays put! You have the freedom here to get creative.. maybe even weave it through a side braid..?! Plus you can choose all sorts of different fabrics and do a variety of thicknesses and lengths! I’ve already made 3 :).

Here’s how you do it:

Step 1: Gather materials needed – Floral wire, Fabric, and basic sewing tools.

Step 2: Cut a strip of fabric wide enough to fold in half (can be as thick as you want!) but make sure it’s long enough to go around your head once or twice with some extra on the ends. I liked making mine super long.

Step 3: Fold right sides together and iron flat.

Step 4: Sew together the long way. psst.. you don’t need a sewing machine to do this – it just goes faster that way!

Step 5: Attach a safety pin to one side but only through one side of the fabric. Then feed the pin through the tube to make it right-side out.

Step 6: Take your wire and bend one end into a loop.

Step 7: Feed the wire through the fabric tube.

Step 8: This part is a little tricky because you want the wire loop to stay put at the ends. Hold the wire loop at the end while sewing the fabric shut and make sure you put stiches thru the wire loop too. So now the ends of the wire will stay put. Then just repeat on the other end and you are done!

Here’s me putting my hair wrap on:

Have fun with it and let me know if you try it!
