Frizzy, Limp, and Just plain glim...But that's okay I Got a Scarf Look #3

So sometimes we want to do something a little different with our scarves, and one of our favorite classic looks is the classic neck scarf. The thing is for some of us that scarf tied around your neck is sooo uncomfortable you'd just rather skip it. So here's another solution for you dolls.

The Scarf Necklace:

All you need is this:

 -Necklace preferably a collar style. (I used a gold plated one brought from a vender at a jewelry show)
-Scarf, preferably a neck size scarf which is large enough to wrap around your neck or head with a little tail left.
 


 
 
STEP ONE:
- Tie a knot around the end of the necklace as close to the end as you can get it. However leave yourself some room incase the scarf slides around when you wear the finished product. 


 
 
STEP TWO:
- Loosely wrap the scarf around your collar necklace.
- It's important not to do this to tight you should have wiggle room so that you can make adjustments and tuck in messy edges.
- Continue wrapping until you reach the other end of the necklace. 
 
 
STEP THREE:
- This depends on how long your scarf was to begin with.
- If you have room remaining end of the scarf around the necklace and tuck it into the folds of the scarf. 
- If you can't tie the scarf wrap the remaining end around to the underside of the necklace and tuck it into the folds out of site.
- Be sure to tuck the ends in on the other side of the necklace too.  
 
 
YOUR FINISHED PRODUCT LOOKS LIKE THIS
 

 

 

Tips:
-this is a great way to get versatility out of you scarves and jewelry.
- be creative use multiple scarves, different prints, etc... the possibilities are endless
- When everyone asks where you got your cool necklace be sure to tell them where you learned how to do it.
