Old Winter Scaves Into Bows

I seen this in an antique mall in Lancaster PA several years ago and I made some and thought I would share. I wanted to do more photos of how to do this but it is so easy. Find an used winter scarf of your liking and cut it in half lengthwise. Make 2 bunny ears, cross one ear over the other and back thru the crossover hole. Tighten the knot and adjusting the size of the bow. It is so simple but I sometimes can't explain it to well, if you don't understand let me know and I will give a better explanation with photos.
I like the wones that are wool-like, You can then hot glue or wire it to your project.

Even though Christmas is over you can still add these to warm your home! Maybe that Chirstmas wreath could use a new look for the winter, so take off the Christmas bow and add one of these.

One of my Old Coat Bears has a matching scarf with a button from the coat added to it.

He likes his plain white bow too!


  1. I LOVE it!!! And I'm wearing one right now. LOL It's not in a bow - but it might be by the time I get back home!!!

    The wreath is ADORABLE and the bear looks sooooooo warm and cozy!!!

  2. Love that -- I have thought about using them to cover a foam wreath -- wrap the scarves around the wreath. Might need more than one scarf, but that would be cute, too.

    Glad you liked the sweater frame idea!! I am already making some for next year. They were a best seller!

  3. Love it! What a great idea. I'm sure I have some scarves around. Can't wait to try!
