More Scarf Talk: A Personal Message

She wasn't just my mom. She was my best friend and biggest cheerleader. It'll be five years this February since my mother lost her battle with breast cancer.

A woman battling breast cancer reached out to Sue Wilson, co-host of the Wynn and Wilson morning show, to request a possible tutorial on how to create a an"after chemo no hair on my head" scarf. 

My reply: Of course!

Take Two: Scarf Season

My scarf obsession continues...

Last week, I shared some DIY tips related to scarves. This week, I'm taking it a little further and bringing you a couple of unique ideas. 

Don't think of your scarf as just a piece of material to keep you cozy during the winter months. You would be surprised as to what you can use a scarf for in your everyday life. 

1. Use it as a strap for your camera. 



2. Use it to create a simple handbag.

DIY: Scarf Season

If you're like me -- you can't get enough of scarves. The fall season is simply the best time of the year to start incorporating it into your wardrobe. Below are a few ways you can create a scarf using your very own materials at home.

1. Double-braided scarf:

2. DIY - Sweater/T-Shirt Scarf 

How can you feed your scarf addiction without having to spend money? Reuse your old sweaters or t-shirts by turning them into a scarf. Simply cut off the top of your shirt -- leaving only the bottom square portion.

3. Scarf Vest 

You don't always have to wear your scarf around your neck. Try something different. Take a large scarf, fold it in half, and tie the two ends together. That's it! Try it!
