I am on a Thrifty Kick today.... DIY Scarf with Removable Pom-Pom Brooch
Dollar Store buying mailing supplies and perusing the aisle. I find scarfs - they must be stocking up on their winter gear since the 90 degree last week means it is winter. That is besides the point.
There was a cute mustard yellow, fuchsia, navy, and gray. I choose the mustard but to my dismay the scarf was really thin and looked incomplete. I had an idea in my head and bought two of them. I sewed both of them together. I tied knots at the end and cut off the excess tassels. I then made a pom-pom out of the extras and placed a brooch pin on the back so I could wear with the scarf or wear the scarf alone.
It is REALLY cute - to prove to you my awesome crafty-ness I have to show a picture -
How adorable is that? Seriously... I am on a thrifty kick so all you awkward bargain items out there better run and hide because I am going to make something seriously fun and totally wearable out of you!
What do you think? Would you like a tutorial on them?
