* DIY Scarf Restyle *

I have become a fan of the infinity scarf, which allows you to easily wear a scarf without it flying away in the wind, or slapping you in the face accidentally. Instead of going out and buying a bunch of new scarves, I decided to revamp an old scarf to function like the infinity scarf.


For this Do-It-Yourself you'll need: scarf, buttons, scissors, needle & thread.


1. Sew the buttons on one end of the scarf spaced out evenly.


2. On the opposite end of the scarf, cut button holes with scissors. Make sure you line them up correctly so the buttons fit in easily.


3. Wrap the scarf around your neck, and button the end.

Now your scarf won't fly away, and you'll have a unique looking scarf!

Hi! This is great (I love big buttons and on scarves!) Question: what is the material of your scarf? If a hole is cut for the buttons, will it fray?

thanks!

Hi there! This particular scarf was made of a microfiber, which made it easier to cut without fraying. Depending on the material, you might need to stitch around the button holes to keep it from fraying. Thanks for your comment :]

Hello I was wondering the length of the scarf you used. I am using micro fleece and going to start with a piece of material and I not sure the length to cut it.

I just tried making the scarf. For some reason, mine doesn't look anything like yours. When I button the buttons, the scarf doesn't lay right. Is there a trick to the length or something?

So sorry for the delay in commenting. This scarf I used is a little short, about 47 inches long. My buttons didn't lay exactly flat either. I think the key is to measure as closely as you can to make the button holes. It's ok if they bunch up slightly, you can cover that up by the way you lay it around your neck. Hope that helps!

How many times was the scarf wrapped? Seems like it would be too long to only wrap once w/o a snug fit. Just wondering if you have another phot if the scarf apart from mannequin.
