DIY Constellations Scarf

Beautiful DIY Constellations ScarfOne trend we are crushing on around here is star sign and constellation inspired prints! This week Katie stamped and embroidered a beautiful scarf. I love the delicate pattern and hand stitched details. Here's how she did it:DIY Constellations ScarfSupplies: craft foam, fabric paint, scissors, white colored pencil, super glue, scarf, embroidery floss & needle, embroidery hoop (optional), disappearing ink pen. 1. Draw a star on a piece of paper and cut it out. Trace the star image onto a piece of craft foam using a white pencil. Cut the star from the foam. 2. Use glue (super glue is fast!) to adhere your foam to a piece of cardboard to create your stamp. 3. Begin stamping out your constellations (I googled a constellations map). Draw the lines between the stars with a disappearing pen and embroider the lines. 4. Continue until your scarf is full!

  • nice! I have plain navy scarf that I want to recycle. I thought the stars were also embroidered, not just the lines between them! Because I want mine to be just embroidery, not print.

  • Why did I not see this earlier? I’m definitely trying this coming winter.

  • Good job! Where did you get the idea from?

    I love the stars in particular!

  • Definitely pinning for my to-craft list. Love it. And I love that you can customize it to your favorite constellations. 🙂

  • Thats so cute! love it, Katie!

  • I have those shoes! Back to the subject, adorable scarf! I am a scarf addict, so this is a must do! You are so creative and have some awesome posts. 🙂

  • Could you let us know where you got the fabulous scarf? It’s perfectly light and airy but still nice and long ! thanks!!

  • LOVE this scarf! Such a great DIY!

  • I am such a scarf girl and this is wonderful! I can’t wait to add some flare to a boring old scarf! (Also, I love the photographs. So cheery and inspiring.)

  • I can’t wait to make this for my niece Stella (which means star!). Stella is only 4 months old, but when she gets a little older she is going to get tons of star gifts from me, and this scarf is perfect!

  • Completely fell in a love with your blog – It’s so pretty and creative.. Wouah 🙂
    Happy weekend xx

    In fact, I will have a go! 🙂

  • This is an adorable gift idea! Thanks! I’ve been wanting to do the constellations on navy fabric with white thread to hang on my walls.

    What I love about embroidery is that perfection is overrated. It’s homemade and natural when the stitches are slightly “off” size.

    I recently embroidered my friend’s Yorkie on a tea towel for her 30th birthday. Check it out and let me know what you think!

  • wow1 this scarf is beautiful! I’m ill now and I don’t have to go to work and it looks like a nice project to do in my free time!

    Thank you!

  • Oh I am so in love with this idea. It is fabulous. I love constellations… Time to go find a scarf to embroider! Thank you!!!

  • I just had major inspiration overload with this and a plain scarf I have…instead, I’ll ink on an old picture of a kraken with the stars above…


  • Love new embroidery ideas! Thanks for the easy DIY!

  • I really, really love this one! This would make an awesome gift, too.

  • Beautiful scarf !!
    New post up (featuring my first video !):

  • The stars have always inspired me so much; this is gorgeous and I just might have to try making one!!

  • This looks so easy and adorable! I’m not very awesome at sewing (yet! hoping to get better) so this would be perfect. Love it!

  • I am itching to do DIY projects such as this, it looks like so much fun and plenty of room for personalization. =)
    This is one of my favorite places for DIY inspiration, thank you for sharing!

  • wow this is really nice! I am totally in love with scarves, and I have an embarrassingly large collection. I might have to try this out!

  • I love this! I was wondering what the constellations were on when I saw the video the other day, this is great! I may have to transfer this idea onto a skirt… 🙂

  • O MY GOODNESS! that is sooooo cute! I have to make one, I LOVE constellations!


  • amazing! i was just looking through the planetarium google chrome app last night, what a coincidence.

    i LOVE the night sky!

  • Such a good idea! Pretty much all my scarves are knit and I definitely need some that aren’t.

  • the constellation pattern is so pretty and inspiring.. reminds me to go star-gazing 🙂 also makes me think of the wall paintings from the old old RV shop decor “science genius”!

  • That is so fun. I love it. Makes me motivated to do my own prints.
