DIY Printed Scarf

Like the other gals of, I am obsessed with Pinterest! I can’t tell you how many recipes I’ve whipped up, crafts I’ve made, and pictures of cats I’ve pinned. So when I saw this DIY scarf tutorial, I knew I had to do it!

the inspiration


Gather your supplies:

  • light-colored scarf — this one would work well.
  • fabric marker
  • cardboard to place the scarf on. No messes here!
  • quotes!

I got a list of my favorite Andy Warhol quotes and began. I started writing (in my best Julia Warhola script) around the edges of the scarf and worked my way in.

The scarf I used was on the crinkly side, which made it a little harder to write on, but not impossible. I didn’t sketch out my letters or anything fancy, I just got to writing!

A few hours later (it took a little longer than I expected, I blame the crinkles.) I was finished, and my scarf was ready to wear!


I even took it out and about on the town:


I’m so happy with how it turned out! My text isn’t as big as the text in the inspiration, but I got to fit in more quotes. I’ll definitely be sure to wear this next time I’m at The Warhol in Pittsburgh.

  1. I am going to make a prayer scarf/wrap for my daughter before she goes off to college next year! What a neat way to wrap yourself in his word!

    • Hi Alexis! I think it would work with a darker-hued scarf, as long as you chose a lighter-hued fabric marker. I would text a corner to see if it shows up okay!

  2. I had fun with this!! Thank you!! Sharpie makes chunkier markers for wider prints to ultra fine and colors to play with also!!!

  3. Thanks for posting about how you made this. I saw the post on pinterest and looks fun to do. I like the tip a fabric pen. Great idea. One could really personalize it with names and events shared.
