Bun Wreaths & Hair Ties - Part of the 2020 Charity Stash Bash CAL

Hello friends.  It's time for our fourth instalment of the 2020 Charity Stash Bash and this month I have a super cute project to share with you.  This would be a great addition to the shoe boxes if you are making these to donate.  They are also a great craft fair item and make a really pretty last minute gifts for someone with long hair.

Other notes:  The bun wreaths are designed to place around a finished bun without twisting.  The Ruffled hair tie may be twisted multiple times to tie up the hair.  As the hair tie will be stretched make sure to fit as many stitches around as you can to allow for this (or you can also use as a bun wreath).
