How To Tie a Square Blanket Scarf

I always love when something that is comfy is fashionable… tennis shoes, leggings, tunic sweaters, and chunky scarves. Yes please! Since picking this scarf up at Forever 21 (in stores), I have gotten a number of questions about how I tie it. Here’s how…

How To Tie A Blanket Square Scarf

  1. Unfold your scarf.
  2. Fold it across evenly to create a triangle.
  3. Grab the two far ends of the triangle, one in either hand.
  4. Cross the two ends behind your head.
  5. Pull them around to the front.
  6. Tuck the two ends slightly under the rest of the scarf and fluff it out until the desired look is achieved.

Voila! You have a cute way to wear the tricky but cozy square blanket scarves.

How To: Fabric-Covered Corkboard Jewelry Organizer

Jewelry2

Materials: Corkboard (Goodwill, $2.50) Spray Adhesive, Fabric, Tacks (Hobby Lobby)

I originally created this fabric-covered corkboard as an inspiration board for my office. Since moving to a new apartment and changing the decor of my living area, I felt that this board could be best used for displaying jewelry in my bedroom. I have a perfectly fine jewelry box, but if I can’t see my jewelry, I won’t wear it. All of the materials together cost about $15 and the project took about an hour.

Here’s how to create your own DIY jewelry organizer:

  1. Start by ironing your fabric to get all of the wrinkles out.
  2. Spray the corkboard with spray adhesive and lay the fabric over it. Make sure to smooth out any air bubbles.
  3. Spray the excess fabric with spray adhesive and fold it over the back of the corkboard as if you were wrapping a present.
  4. Following the line of the frame, stick flat head tacks into the board to create the faux nailhead look. My thumbs started hurting during this part so I used a hammer.
  5. Stick larger tacks into the body of the board however you would like your jewelry arranged. I just lined mine about three inches from the top of the board and about two inches apart.

Voila! You have your very own customized jewelry display!
