Scarf Holder

So, I’ve come to the stunning conclusion that, while completely functional, my Pinterest crafts never turn out quite as visually appealing as the original pins. First example I’ll use is my shoebox charging station, which is completely functional, but goofy looking. Today’s blog is another shining example.

Behold, a scarf holder!
More than a little tacky, right? The important thing is that my scarves arent a wadded up mess in a drawer or bin.
The supplies you’ll need for this one are:
•1 hanger
•11 shower curtain rings (that’s how many I used)
•electrical tape
•ribbon (this is optional. Mine doesn’t have this yet, but I will be adding it later)
First step is to lay out your supplies like so:

Tape your shower curtain rings closed. Then you just tape them to each other in a configuration, much like this:

I went a little electrical tape happy!
Then you attach this to your hanger, like so:

This is the part where the ribbon would come in. Wind the ribbon around the rings and hanger, disguising the tackiness!
The original pin has been blocked, so I can’t reference the original blogger, but here is their finished product:

Much prettier, yes? Maybe when I add the ribbon…….

Scarf tying

Scarf tying

This was a lot of fun. I have a small collection of scarves, but most of them are your regular winter scarves. I’ve got a Harry Potter Gryffindor scarf (yes I’m a nerd!) and a 9′ long hippy-ish winter scarf. Recently I’ve acquired a thin, summery scarf from Longaberger. It’s great to wear as a regular scarf, or it unrolls to become a thin shawl. Great for travel!
I’ve been kind of playing around with different ways to tie the scarves and was very excited about this pin. 40 ways to tie a scarf! Some of them are pretty goofy looking, but I went ahead and did 6 of them for my photo. My husband was picking on me a little, but I had fun with it!
The braid is really complicated, looks cool, but I don’t know if I could wear it out and about. The wrap and tie was pretty basic, but a nice change from the usual wrap and go I do. The girly windsor and knot row I didn’t really care for. The neck tie knot was kind of cool and I see myself doing that one. I love the four-in-hand and I will definitely be doing this in the future!
The site it nice because it gives step-by-step directions. If you want step-by-step, I will recommend this site, because it would be a really, super long blog if I did all the directions for these six styles.
Happy knotting!
