16 ways...Scarf Tutorial #1...Upcycled Necklace

16 Ways to Style a (vintage!) Scarf: Tutorial #1

Upcycled Necklace

Looking for a fun way to wear a vintage scarf? Try this out!

Materials needed:

1) One vintage scarf (the featured scarf is from Hope's Outlet on Glade St. in Muskegon, Michigan!)

2) Old string of beads of any size (though I used large, Mardi Gras style which I think worked nicely--and smaller is more work. You also might need to thin your fabric a bit the smaller you go.)

3) Scissors to trim beads
4) Needle and thread (whatever color you prefer, though color matching is nice!)

I trimmed my beads so that the length was where I wanted it to appear on my chest!
You could do whatever length you like!

I centered the bead strip in my vintage scarf, and folded it in!

Then I took a needle and thread, and starting just before the first bead, I inserted the thread, and tied a loop around the fabric. After the first loop, I inserted the needle in and slid it under the fabric to the next gap between beads (so that the thread wouldn't show over the top of the beaded area). I then tied a loop and continued this process until I came all the way to the end of the bead segment!

Once the beads were all covered and the ends were tied, I simply used the loose ends as the "tie" for my necklace, fixing it around the neck with a simple bow. The entire process took about twenty minutes, and I love the result; funky, vintage and not even permanent, as you could easily snip the threads and "reclaim" your vintage scarf once more for another styling!
