I found this cute scarf on pintrest
and thought, "hey I can do that!"
Am I the only one who does that when I find something on pintrest?
So, I followed the tutorial at http://www.simplysalvage.com/t-shirt-ruffle-scarf-tutorial/.
My first attempt was a bust! I used a paper plate and it's just simply too small, so I used a regular plate the 2nd time and it worked like a charm! I bought a 2XL T-shirt from Wally's for under $6.
Step 1: Draw 4-5 Circles on it (use a regular plate, yes you can use a sharpie or chalk).
Step 2: Cut into spirals (cut smaller than this, about 1.5")
Step 3: Gather Strips with a felt flower.
Now, if you've never made these....they are easy peesy lemon squeezey!
Plus, they are super-dee-dooper cheap so if your
my daughter loses them at pre-school you aren't worried about her losing an expensive bow (or even a $1 bow).
I used a glade candle to trace, you can use a baby food jar lid or something similar in size. I use a sheet of felt (.29cents at Wally's). I trace 6ish circles.
You'll also need a pony tail holder too.
Fold the circles in half.
Then into 1/4's. Put a little hot glue (in the center) to hold the fold. Then, hot glue down onto the base circle (which I cut a bit smaller so you don't see it).
|Take a look at the pretty bracelet my wonderful hubby bought me for Christmas.|
You just glue 4 of these onto the base. Then, 2 more onto the top to make it look fuller. Then hot glue a pony tail holder onto the back. I glue a small oval of felt over the pony tail holder to secure it. I made 2 black scarves and a red & purple flower.
