DIY Triangle Print Infinity Scarf

DIY Triangle Print Infinity Scarf

Every so often, I get a print stuck in my head, and I keep wearing and making it until I get sick of it. These days, that print is triangles. I love the geometric print on everything — pants, shirts, jewelry, and of course, scarves. :)

Lately I’ve been seeing triangles everywhere — bags, prints, the runway — so I wanted to make a triangle print scarf of my own. It’s super simple, and you only need a bit of time!

Supplies you need:

DIY Triangle Print Infinity Scarf

  • Paint (Soft Fabric Paint is best)
  • Scarf (Any scarf will do. For a scarf similar to mine, I like this and this, too.)
  • Sponge
  • Water to dilute the paint
  • Paper/plastic to put under the scarf so it doesn’t bleed

Directions:

DIY Triangle Print Infinity ScarfIt’s quite simple to add a print to your scarf! You can use this for any technique:

  • First, I put the paint on a plate in different amounts and swirled them all together.
  • After that, I added a little bit of water to dilute the paint and make it easier to stamp all over the scarf.
  • Then, I got my sponge a bit wet and started stamping!
  • After one side of the infinity scarf was done, I let it dry and then stamped the other side.

After the scarf was done drying, I wanted to experiment a bit with how to tie an infinity scarf. The thing I love about scarves is that they make an outfit look effortless, but put together, too.

With our arsenal of 37 Ways to Tie a Scarf (plus more and more ways), the Scarves Dot Net girls are pretty savvy when it comes to scarf knots. So when we find a new knot that we’ve never seen, we get excited — like noisemaker, confetti, and balloons excited.

The other week as I was catching up on my favorite bloggers, I ran across Kayley from Sidewalk Ready looking chic (as always) with a super fancy-looking scarf knot around her neck. Stacie and I got to the bottom of this and dubbed the scarf “fancy braid.” Sometimes life calls for a fancy scarf, so we made this little video to help you get get the look too:

Easy peasey, right? The zebra print scarf in the video is the perfect length and width for the fancy braid.

Here’s Kayley looking very pretty in her fancy braided scarf:

  • White plates
  • Gold spray paint (We used “Krylon Metallic Gold.”)
  • Painter’s tape
  • Plastic shopping bag

How-To:

tape plate

Step One: Wipe down the plate to remove any dust or dirt.

Step Two: Use the plastic shopping bag to cover the area you wish to keep white. Then tape it down using the painter’s tape. (We suggest leaving about ⅓ of the plate showing.)

paint plate

Step Three: Spray paint the uncovered section of the plate.

Step Four: Let it dry overnight.

Step Five: Repeat steps three and four as many times as neede for complete coverage. (This step is optional. :) Maybe yours will be covered to your liking after the first coat.)

drying plate

Step Six: Remove tape carefully to reveal your now gold-dipped plate.
