I have a lot of scarves!!! The picture above just show you a small sample of my scarves collection. I wear them very often, even during summer time. As I can only wear one at the time, I was wondering if there was an other fun way to enjoy them. And I come up with the idea of displaying them as wall art.
It’s a very simple DIY to make, and it will not damage your scarves. It’s also a great way to add a pop of color on the wall. It allows you to change decor as many time as you like, perfect if you like to create seasonal decor. Once your are tired seeing your scarf hanging on the wall, just take if off and wear it around your neck again.
DIY Wall Art with a Scarf
Material you will need to make this wall decor:
- a piece of wooden dowel
- a wooden ring
- some rope,
- a few beads
- a hand saw
- a pair of scissors,
- some glue
- a nice scarf
Place the scarf on a flat surface a cut the dowel 2 inches longer than the scarf width. Sand it.
You will use the wooden ring to hang your scarf display on the wall. Make a loop around the ring to attach the rope and add a few beads if you like too.
Make a knot with the rope at each end of the dowel, and add a dot of glue to prevent the rope from sliding away. The rope length has to be the same on each side if you want the dowel to be horizontal once hanged on the wall.
Iron the scarf and fold it around the dowel. Add a few pin to hold the fabric in place.
And done, hang it on the wall and enjoy your new colorful wall art!
I give a try with different scarves…and I don’t know witch one I like the most.
A few tips I learn:
- It’s easier to place the scarf when the dowel is hanged on the wall.
- Don’t hesitate to try different way to fold your scarf to have an interesting pattern hanged on the wall.
- Once you are satisfied with the scarf folding, iron it to keep the folds flat and in shape.
It’s a very fun craft to make, and as I like to change decor quite often it’s perfect! It will save me to make an other zillion nails holes on the walls…;) So tell me, what’s your favorite? Would you give this idea a try?
