No Sew Winter Scarves

It's officially scarf weather!! So I decided to write a blog on how to make your own scarves for the winter...  

First is the infinity scarf....

Here is what you will need..
1. A plain T-shirt (The bigger the shirt the bigger the scarf)
2. Fabric paint
3. Tape
4. Scissors
5. Foam Pouncer

Lay your t-shirt flat, taping down the edges. Cut a line straight across just above the bottom hem and just below the sleeves or the armpit. This will form the actual scarf so try and make the cut edges as smooth as possible.

 Dip your pouncer in the paint color of your choice and start dotting.

Stamp your first row spaced however you’d like, then make the next row alternate from the first. Repeat this until one whole side of the scarf is patterned.

Now you have super cute infinity scarf for the winter!!

The next one is one of my favorites to make it's a double scarf

Here is what you will need.

1. Tape
2. Scissors
3. Two t-shirts

Tape down the corners of the shirt start cutting right above the hem line and stop right below the armpitt do this to both of the shirts. Now you just tie the shirts together in a knot or a braid however you want to tie them together will work...

The last scarf is the Loop scarf...

Here is what you will need.

1. A few t-shirts (Depending on how many colors you want to use or for size)
2. Scissors

Start by cutting off the hem line but make sure you save it cause we will be using it later.. Take your tees and cut them horizontally Right about 3/4 of a inch wide.. Each shirt should take about 8 or so depending on the size of shirt you are using..

When you are done cutting take the loops one by one and stretch it then wrap it around your hand...
Now cut the hem lines into 5 inch pieces. Now take the loops and tie them together with the hem lines. I can't wait to try this it is so cute!!

Now you have three super cute and super easy scarves to keep you warm in the winter!!

DIY Fashion Bobby Pins

So you know when you go to the store and you see those really cute fashion barrettes and how they are like $4 or $5 and all you get is $4.. Well I found a easy way to take your bobby pins and make them look as good or even better!!!

Here is what you will need.
*Bobby pins
*Hot glue or super glue (Hot glue would work the best but if you don't have any super glue would work)
*Scrapbook embellishments

Take your bobby pins and your embellishment and hot glue (or super glue) them onto the top of the bobby pin and now you got super cute and super easy bobby pins!!! 

CD Embellished Shirt

Do you have some old Cd's you know you never are going to listen to or use? Or have a collared shirt you want to spice up? Well this is the perfect DIY for you!!

Here is what you'll need
1. Cd's
2. Scissors
3. Super Glue
4. Collared shirt

First what you will need to do is boil the Cd's for a few minutes. Cut the CD straight down the middle then you are going to wanna take the shiny clear part off the CD (You will be using the solid part of the CD's). Next you are going to cut the CD into triangles and super glue them to your collar. Now you have a super cute spiced up collared shirt and you used up some of your old Cd's..
