I really enjoy sitting down in the afternoon and going through magazines. Yesterday as I was reading the November issue of Martha Stewart Living, I came across a really neat article: Speedy Scarves Makeovers. I’m sure you’ll enjoy these ideas as much as I did!
DIY Scarves – How to embellish scarves
This is the photo that drew me in:
Aren’t the scarves beautiful? At first I thought they were made like that, until I read the title of the article.
I was so excited when it was in fact a tutorial on how to embellish them ourselves. I was so excited! With supplies like craft paint, glitter, ribbon, thread, etc… you can easily update a scarf to give it a new look.
This scarf was transformed with sequin trim! So pretty!
Do you have ribbon laying around somewhere? Just stitch it onto a scarf for a fun look.
With the help of a foam pouncer, give your scarf a polka dot look with craft paint.
Sew on some fabric onto your scarf to give a two-tone look!
Use glitter and fabric-to-fabric découpage finish to add some shimmer to your scarf! Love the sparkly look!Photos by Burcu Avsar. Courtesy of Martha Stewart Living. Copyright © 2013.

Aren’t these ideas great? I don’t own very my scarves, but these ideas have inspired me… so I’m going to go buy a couple and embellish them. I think they would make FABULOUS gifts for the Holidays, don’t you agree? Of course I’ll make one for myself too!
Have a fabulous day!!
