Materials for a Scrunchie Graduation Lei

To make this lei, I went to Walmart and bought a 12 pack of scrunchies for about $10 and a 2 pack of flower hair claws for $3. We already had some ribbon at home, so I didn’t have to buy any of that. 

However, if I had had a little more time, I probably would’ve ordered the materials off of Amazon, so I’ll link similar items below. Regardless, all you need to make this fun graduation craft is:

How to Make a Scrunchie Graduation Lei

Here’s a step by step process on how to make them!

Step 1: First, organize the scrunchies in the order that you want them.

Step 2: Then use pieces of ribbon to tie each of them together, end to end. I recommend doing long ribbon pieces and then using the edge of your scissors to curl them. It just adds some volume and texture.

Step 3: Next, measure how long you want your lei to be. The lei ended up being slightly shorter than we wanted it to be so we added some extra ribbon at the top to add some length and make it not so chunky around the neck. 

Step 4: Finally, add your flower claw clips. We decided to add one to each side.

And just like that, you have a colorful and fun lei to give your senior at graduation!!
