Hey there, crafty queens of creativity! Today, we're diving headfirst into a fun and trendy polymer clay project that's not only stylish but also functional. Ever wished you could add a touch of artistry to your hair buns? Well, you're in luck! In this step-by-step guide, we're going to show you how to make a fabulous polymer clay hair bun cover that's sure to turn heads.

**What You'll Need:**

- Polymer clay in your favorite colors
- Rolling pin or pasta machine
- Craft knife or clay blade
- Texture sheets or stamps
- Hairpin 
- Oven for baking clay
- Hair slide cutter
- Varnish or glaze (optional)

**Step 1: Choose Your Colors**

Start by selecting your polymer clay colors-  pick your favorites to match your style or outfit. Remember, the key to a stunning bun cover is creativity!

**Step 2: Roll Out the Clay**

Roll out your chosen clay colors into thin, even sheets using a rolling pin. You can mix colors or use solid sheets – it's all about expressing your unique style.

**Step 3: Add Texture**

Here's where you can get really creative. Use texture sheets or stamps from CreateAlong's amazing collection to give your clay a captivating texture. From intricate patterns to whimsical designs, the choice is yours.

**Step 4: Cut the Clay**

Now, take your hair slide cutter in the shape of your choice. We have several, with the holes all lined up for your hairpin!

**Step 5: Shape and Mold**

Gently drape the clay circle over your hand or a rounded object to give it a curved shape, similar to the curve of your bun. This ensures a snug fit over your hair.

**Step 6: Bake to Perfection**

Preheat your oven to the temperature specified on your polymer clay packaging. Place your bun cover on a baking sheet or foil and bake according to the instructions (usually around 15-30 minutes). Don't forget to let it cool completely before handling.

**Optional Step 7: Smooth and Shine**

If you desire a super smooth and shiny finish, you can sand your bun cover lightly with fine-grit sandpaper. Then, apply a coat of varnish or glaze for that extra sparkle.

**Step 8: Attach Your Bun Cover**

Slide a hairpin or hair comb through the back of your bun cover. This will allow you to easily secure it in your hair.

**Step 9: Rock Your Bun Cover**

Now comes the fun part – flaunt your gorgeous polymer clay hair bun cover! Whether you're headed to a special event or just want to add some pizzazz to your everyday style, your hair slide will be the talk of the town.

Voilà! You've created a stunning polymer clay hair bun cover that's as unique as you are. Thanks to CreateAlong's incredible range of polymer clay tools, your creative journey is bound to be a blast.
