a new twist..


to the classic scarf! we've tried everything, from tying it to the side from wearing it with a scarf ring, to turning it into a headband. here's a fabulous new way to wear it, as a fabric necklace!! After seeing her scarf at garance dore, we decided to play diy at home with a favorite scarf! tres simple yet so cute, you take the scarf and here's a step by step to what you do:

1. Place the scarf flat on the floor, and take two corners and fold them into the middle of the square.


2. fold the two sides in again and again until the scarf looks like one narrow folded piece.



3. create knots by placing your hand where you want the knot to form, make a loop, and simply pull in the longer side of the scarf in the loop and secure a knot. place your hand a few inches away from the first knot and form a second knot. Keep forming knots until there is only 2 strands on each side of the necklace scarf for you to be able to tie it around your neck.


4. look fabulous!!

I like! friends did this with different coloured scarves and sold the scarves at a charity fair a few years ago - they were a big hit!
