Repurposed Your Old Scarf With 7 Simple DIY To Do
Take out some of your older, unused scarves or go thrifting for some fun printed ones! Then, take one of these projects and get creative! Which one of these 7 ways to use scarves around the house has you wanting to redo?
1. Party Banner Scarf
Gather round your cutest vintage pieces and create a banner. Use it at your next house party, dinner get-together, or just to spruce up the kitchen or dining area. Or, better yet, create this piece and use it as garland to jazz up your stair banister and make it a more stylish part of your home!
2. Wall Headboard
Use your favorite scarf as a headboard. All you need to do is tack it to the wall (evenly of course) and show it off. Use fun colors and patterns to really make it a focal point and tie the room together. You may even want to frame several of your favorites and create a collage of scarves instead.
3. Decorate Your Chairs
Add a little extra pizazz to some of your chairs by simply adorning it with a light scarf. Tie it like a sash, throw it over one shoulder or make a pretty bow. It’s all up to you!
4. Scarves Into Quilts
Okay, if you’re really great with the sewing machine or you have a lot of scarves to use. Create a colorful and playful quilt! It’ll be a beautiful centerpiece to any bedroom and definitely cozy enough to cuddle with at night.
5. Beautiful Drapes
Whether you want an eclectic room partition or fun, tied-up curtains, sew or knot your scarves together to create some type of beautiful drapery. It’ll be whimsical and light and perfect for any room.
6. Apron Scarf
You can turn those scarves into wonderful aprons and the best part is, there’s no sewing required. You iron in some fusible webbing and iron on a ribbon to tie the apron on. That’s it. You could make several of these depending on how many scarves you have available.
7. Scarf Frame Art
If you still want to do something with all of those old scarves, why not just frame them and use them for home décor? A silk scarf in a frame is gorgeous and depending on how many you have on hand, you could create an entire gallery wall of art. Use different colors and designs to get a really nice quilt look on the wall.
