Not the best picture, but even a regular "every day" bun can be turned into a winter hairstyle.

"Christmasy"/"Wintery" hairstyles 1

I'm not a Christmas or a winter person, but this year I'll try to do a few hairstyles that's inspired by Christmas and winter.
First up are these taped milkmaid braids, made from rope braids.
I thought that this ribbon had a bit of "Christmas feeling" and the hairstyle does remind me a little of a Christmas wreath.

DIY. Make your own scrunchie

You need
  • Fabric - preferable is velvet, silk or satin
  • Elastic
  • Scissor
  • Thread
  • Needle
  • If wanted, a sewingmachine
How to do it
  • Cut out the fabric. Mine's 56x9 cm.
  • Put the fabric inside out.
  • Sew the longer sides together, around the elastic. I did it by hand, but you could do it with a sewing machine.
  • Turn the fabric the right way by "pulling it trough itself"
  • Take a needle and thread.
  • Make a knot and start your sewing with the knot inside the fabric.
  • Fold the edges as in the picture and sew "around" them
  • This will give you and "invisible" seam. But it's not the end of the world if your seams are visible.
  • And now you have a scrunchie!

I made scrunchies

While rewatching a movie I made my first scruchies.
I made them by hand and used leftover fabric from the skirt I made a few years ago. So they match!
A tutorial on how to make your own scruchies will be up in the next couple of days!
