Difficulty: All Levels (with adult help)

Safety Warning: Younger viewers definitely need an adult’s help with this one. You’ll be using scissors, pins, and either a sewing machine or needle and thread.

In How To Make A Circus Costume 1, Tilly shows you how to create the first part of a fantastic circus costume – a scrunchie!

You can make your own fabulous hair scrunchie using any material you have lying around the house. If you don’t have spare material, you could even use an old item of clothing. Tilly explains what you need and shows you how to do each step of the project.

This is a great beginners’ sewing project as well! Make sure an adult is helping you where you need it, and make as many scrunchies as you want. Perhaps they’d be good gifts for your friends and family too?

We’ll be bringing you more videos on how to make different parts of your costume over the next few weeks.
