DIY: Add Fringe to Your Scarf


Some of us can’t just accept things as they are; instead, we see the greater potential. Whether we want to fix up an old house, a boyfriend or an accessory, we can’t wait to get to work. So if you find yourself unsatisfied with a scarf of yours, why not snazz it up and make it an original by adding some fringe?

  1. Choose a cotton or silk scarf. These will be easier to unravel.
  2. Decide how long you’d like your fringe to be and measure it out on the scarf, marking it with tailor’s chalk. Do this at both ends of the scarf.
  3. Make a tiny cut at the bottom corner of the scarf and grab the thread that runs across the scarf, not up and down the scarf.
  4. Pull this thread to remove it from the scarf, unraveling the threads running in the opposite direction.
  5. Continue this process until you reach the mark you made.
  6. Group the fringe into small sections and tie them into knots.
  7. Don’t forget to tie to last piece of excess thread in a knot so the scarf doesn’t continue to unravel.
  8. Wrap it around your neck and you’re ready to go.
