DIY T-shirt Scarf

It’s getting colder and I’m unhappy about it. In lovely Pennsylvania, it stays cold from about Sep-Mar, give or take a month. That means you have to layer up if you want to be comfortable.

Personally, I like scarves and probably have too many of them. But they’re great for fall and winter weather so I stock up. Recently, I started make some of my own. However, I’m not a big fan of sewing, as most of you know, so I like the no-sew method.

Want to make one? It’s SUPER easy. Keep reading.

T-shirt scarf supplies

  • scissors
  • soft t-shirt

Use an old t-shirt or check out Goodwill for cheap options. I recommend size Larger or bigger. I chose Large for this one. You should also consider a neutral color so that scarf matches more of your clothing. White, black, brown, gray and beige are all good options.

Step 1: flatten your tshirt

Lay the tshirt flat on a table or flat surface.

Don’t worry about ironing. The scarf looks better without it.

Step 2: cut out the bottom of the shirt

Cut across the shirt right below the arms.

Then, cut off the bottom section of the shirt above the hem.

Now, you’ll have a scarf that’s ready to wear! I like to keep the sewn sections at the back of my neck and bottom of the scarf.

There’s also an option to make two of these t-shirt scarves and link them together for  nice infinity scarf, but that’s a tutorial for another day.

I’d love to hear your thoughts. Leave them in the comments.

Happy crafting!

 

DIY Farmhouse Wood Sign

As some of you might know, my husband and I are now homeowners, so I’ve been more compelled to decorate. There’s no one to tell me I can’t put holes in my walls or paint them fun colors. Why not, then?

One of my latest projects is this cute farmhouse style home sign. This is a multi-season one. Every spring, fall, winter and summer I can swap out the bow for a different one, making it just as festive as the previous season. I like those kinds of decorations because I don’t have to find storage space for them.

Want to make your own? Follow the tutorial below.

I also got the small home wood piece at Michael’s but couldn’t find the link for it. You can find it in the wood section.

Step 1: paint wooden home piece

Choose a multi-seasonal color, like yellow, and paint your wooden home piece.

Yellow is great because it works with spring, summer and fall. I might have to stretch it a bit for winter but I’m sure I can make it work.

Step 2: glue home onto your sign

Now, hot glue home onto the palette sign.

Step 2: tie the bow

I tied four bows and glued them together to make the bow in the picture above. I also used two different colors of ribbon to spice it up a bit.

Choose a corner and hot glue your ribbon onto your sign.

DIY Table Top Fire Bowl

It has been waaaay too long. I apologize for my absence. It’s been an interesting few months, but I’ll spare you the details. I’m getting back into my crafting and I have a schedule ready to go! You’ll be hearing from me a lot more often.

First up, this lovely table top fire bowl. I happen to live in the borough of my neighborhood and the rule is that you can’t have a fire unless it’s contained. My workaround is a table top option since I can’t have a fire pit.

You don’t need much to make one and, depending on the size of bowl you get, you’ll likely spend less that $25 to make your own.

  • Long-Stemmed lighter

Step 2: Add the burning gel

Make space in the middle for the Sterno burning gel and fill in the space around it with pea gravel.

Light the gel when ready! Be sure to use a long stemmed match or lighter. Enjoy the outdoors a little more this fall with the warmth from your new fire bowl.

Tip: get the food safe Sterno gel and make s’mores!
