I still have lots of fun DIY projects and yummy treats coming your way this week-I was so so excited to see what Jenni would come up with and I was super impressed by this beautiful necklace she created. How fun!
Hi Hi! It's Jenni from I Spy DIY. Congrats to Elsie and thanks for having me on the site! I spied this beyond cute necklace and just so happened to have a scarf in the same color that did not get much wear. So with a few cuts and folds, a new neck piece was born!
Supplies: Scarf, scissors, iron and a needle.
Step 1: Cut the scarf into 5 strips, each 2 inches wide.
Step 2: Start folding the material back and forth like an accordion, ironing each fold so the material is pleated. Repeat on 4 of the strips.
Step 3: Cut tops to even off.
Step 4: Using the last strip and a large needle, thread each pleated strip.
Step 5: Trim bottom to create your desired shape.
Tie around your neck over a little white dress to create the perfect summer look!
thats great. i will have to try it!
I love this and I tried yesterday with a piece of fabric I thought was thin enough but when I started to thread it, it wouldn’t go through and I was using a large needle. It took me a while to make the hole larger with the biggest knitting needle I own but finally got it through. I know I can do better with a thinner scarf. will try again but thanks for the inspiration. I want to give as gift.
what a fantastic idea, a great money saving tip too
I really LOVE this idea..thank you for the tute.

When someone starts making something exceptional you will see not everyone is appreciating you. But I believe what you have done is unique and looking good. Please keep trying.
I’m totally in love with this! In fact, I’m going to make my own version right now before I leave for work. Nothing like fast DIY’s to complete an outfit!
