How to Tie a Scarf into a Vest

Have a beautiful scarf? See how to tie a scarf into a vest so you can wear it for any occasion!

Do you have a favorite scarf but sometimes it’s just not scarf weather? I have been running in to that problem all the time right now with this killer heat wave we’re in! I don’t wear necklaces anymore because squirt thinks it’s so fun to pull them and I’m not a pattern person typically, so what does that leave me with but boring, plain t-shirts? Until I discovered that you can take your awesome scarves and still wear them in this heat. So let me take a few moments here and show you how to turn a scarf into a vest that is perfect for any occasion. All you need is a scarf and a few conveniently placed knots and that’s it! Sorry, but infinity scarves won’t cut it for this one.

This is also my contribution to another fabulous day of DIY scarf inspiration. Check out everyone else’s posts at the bottom of this.
