How To Make A DIY Scarf Pillow

Alright you all! This is one EASY project that I am sharing today! My favorite projects are the ones that come from things that are already around the house, cost nothing to make and take about ten minutes! So today I have joined sweet Ashley from Modern Glam to share some awesome DIY projects using flannel, plaid or sweaters. I improvised a little bit with that idea and used a fall scarf that I had in my closet.

DIY Scarf Pillow

For this simple project you will need:

  • A needle or sewing machine
  • Thread
  • Scissors
  • Lumber sized pillow
  • A longer scarf

And here is how you will make this pillow…

Lay your scarf out lengthwise. Start with your pillow towards the end and begin to wrap.

You may need to rearrange it a couple times until you get it to the place or folded around the way you want.

Once you get to the last wrap around you can decide if you want the front to be flat or have a fold over like I did.

I wanted the front to have some interesting fringe, so I folded the edge a top.

Make sure the ends are all lined up evenly.

Now you will sew the ends together. I just tied a simple knot and used large stitches across by hand sewing. If you want this to be more permanent you could use a sewing machine. Hand sewing allows you to pull this out eventually in case you want to wear your scarf again ;).

And when I said easy, I meant easy! This took a total of ten minutes to put together which is always a good thing!

This could be done with a variety of patterns, scarves and textures!
