DIY Monday: Tassel Scarf

DIY Monday is now brought to you by Thursday, and the letter L.

I recently lost my favorite scarf (sadness) so I’ve been searching for a replacement.  Nothing has really caught my eye, so I decided that DIY was the way to go~  With that in mind, I bought some lovely white fabric, with a thin metallic stripe which looked perfect for scarf-makin’.

For this project you will need: 1 yard of fabric, pinking shears, a small cardboard rectangle, embroidery thread and a large gauge needle.


Cut your scarf.  Mine is square, and about 36 inches on each side.  Cutting with pinking shears gives you a nice ragged edge which is resistant to ravelling.  Next, wash your fabric, then trim any thread ends which may have formed.

And now for some tassels~

Wrap your embroidery thread around the cardboard square 6-10 times, depending on the desired thickness of your tassel (no that’s what she said jokes, please, I hear them enough at work)


Snip at the bottom, then tie a longer thread around the middle.  Tie another thread around the entire bundle, about 1/2 an inch down.  Knot, and trim ends to match.


Now use your large gauge needs to attach to the corners of your scarf, and voila!  DIY Scarf of brilliance~
