Oh joy! The school has deemed tomorrow Crazy Hair Day. What’s that? You have no hair-styling skills and your kid wants to participate? Me and you both sister! Take a look at this quick tutorial for a Fall-Inspired Crazy Hair Day DIY Style.
I promise, this hair style is easy for all skill levels.
If you created our Easy DIY Fall Centerpiece, you probably have some leftover items that you can use for this Fall-Inspired Crazy Hair Day Style! How’s THAT for proving that you’re not wasting your money at the craft store? You’re welcome 😉

Here’s what you’ll need to make this crazy hair style:
- Foam donut bun
- Hair tie
- Bobby pins
- Random left over twigs, flowers and decorative gourds
Step 1: Brush out and style hair smooth
Step 2: Make a pony tail
Make a pony tail high on the crown of your child’s head. Make sure that the hair tie is secure.
Step 3: Place foam donut bun on head
Pull the ponytail through the center of the foam bun.
Step 4: Fan out hair
Fan out the ponytail so that the hair covers the entire foam donut.
Step 5: Tuck in hair ends
Tuck in the ends of the hair around the donut. Keep the hair in place by sticking in bobby pins. Make sure that the bun is secure and will stay in place with the bobby pins.
Ideally, you don’t want the bobby pins to show. However: 1) I was in a rush; 2) I was taking pictures one-handed; and 3) It’s Crazy Hair Day so…
Step 6: Place twigs and leaves in hair
You can push flowers, leaves, etc. throughout the hair. Make sure you stick a long twig in the middle of the bun for a comedic look.
Step 7: Don’t forget the pumpkin
Oops…I almost forgot that this is supposed to be a Fall Crazy Hair Day Style. I also have to justify this random decorative pumpkin purchase from the craft store 😉 Remember I used these in the Easy DIY Fall Centerpiece?
Take a pumpkin and pierce it with a wire twig.
Then, push the pumpkin in through the base of the bun. I went for the top of the bun in the hopes that the pumpkin would stay in longer.
Looks like I have a happy customer!
