Necklace Scarves


Boring title right!

Well don't worry about that because I have the coolest scarves that anyone can make.

How and how rude no greeting, so G'day.

I saw these on sale for $30, I wondered how much I could make one for, worked out at around $6 each, score!







These are so easy, you'll want to make heaps. Perfect last minute Christmas gift.

So here we go

Suppiles:


  • Scarf
  • Necklace Bail
  • Necklace Beads (Bail and Beads can be found on etsy, ebay or you might get them in craft stores, I haven't seen them in my local)
  • Beads & Findings


1. The hardest bit, shove the scarf through the bail and slide it to the middle.


2. Add the beads either side.


3. Pick your bling/beads, I used split rings because they're easy to work with - no tools! I chose a locket to be all sentimental and stuff.


Include a pic of your most favorite child here - it's empty because they all annoy me are loved equally


TA-DA your done.



Make another and have your teenage son model it for you because you can not figure out how to take one of yourself (Okay I lie, I'm behind on laundry and discovered all my bras are either in the wash, hamper or on the line. Not the day to be modelling scarves!)



DIY Delight or Disaster? Delight, the pics are a bit of a disappointment, they're actually really cool. Plus depending on how you do it, you can swap the bails and have different kinds of bling. I was really happy with this so Delight.

So what's the verdict other than I am the worst housewife in the world?  Which by the way, I'm okay with, I love being a Mum, I hate being a housekeeper.

Thanks for reading, off to do the flippin' laundry,

Mel xo

  3. I change my vote...your son's room needs the remodel. How sweet of him to volunteer to model your fabulous scarf necklace. You've trained him early on to comply with women :)

  13. Very pretty, Mel! You could have totally modeled them, though- you just have to drape the scarf in strategic ways. :)

  17. Amazing idea to turn a scarf into a necklace, the buckles used to notch the scarf are too ethnic, and give the scarf a new look.
    Just Loved your idea.

  21. Great idea. Have to fine a non-bulky scarf, as my body needs no added bulk. Napkin rings for the slidy parts? Or use the memory wire ring stuff and pretty beads? Thank you for sharing.

  22. What a great idea to combine scarves with necklaces. I have some old scarves I haven't worn in years but somehow can't seem to part with, might have to try couple of them for this. Nothing to lose right? Love how yours look. so pretty. Does the scarf have to be long like yours? Can hardly wait to go scrounging in old scarves. Glad you shared this idea what a smart gal you are and obviously talented. Happy Week/weekend

    1. I think you could do shorter scarves even a cowl scarf would look great, nothing to lose, I'd recommend split rings and you could swap out your jewellery. Thanks so much for your lovely comment.

  23. Okay- these are SO cute, Mel! I love them. They're chunky, but still soft and feminine! Great job!

  24. Mel you are adorable (with or without your bra). Love scarf necklace..or wait, your necklace scarf. I think your model steals the show :)

  25. Definitely delight. I have been wanting to make some of these, but haven't found the necklace beads locally. Thanks for sharing. I love your crafts.
