From halter tops to galaxy scarves, the SDN gals can’t get enough of crafty, creative, and innovative ways to use (and reuse) our favorite accessory. That’s why we’re beyond thrilled to bring you our latest series: The Scarves Dot Net DIY Challenge.


Needless to say, we’re fawning over this head scarf knot from Stephanie of Henry Happened — so simple and yet so completely adorable! Try it out in your own hair by following the steps below.
