Hot Glue a Winter Scarf!

Pin It
 Cozy Up with a Winter Scarf!

With a few simple tattered roses made from old tees you can jazz up a plain scarf in just a few minutes.  I used hot glue to make the roses and to attach them, of course you could also use a hand stitch.  To see other tattered rose projects visit this link.

In celebration of my next book (101 Tees - Lark Books - 08/2011) I am doing a years worth projects with T-shirts.



 Begin with a 3 fall colored tees.  

Begin to cut the the tees into strips.

You will 1 strip per rose.  They can be anywhere from 1" to 4" wide.  The narrower the strip, the small the rose.  The length can vary in size too.  19" long is plenty.  You can piece strips together to make a long one.  The longer the strip the wider the rose.


Add a drop of hot to the corner of the strip.


 Fold the strip over.

 Fold the end into a triangle shape.


Fold the and turn the strip in the center to form the center of the rose. Hot glue to secure.

 Bring the strip to the back and glue to secure.


Keep folding, rolling and gluing.  

Secure the end of the strip to the backside with a drop of glue.

Make 3 different colored roses in 3 different sizes.

Hot glue the roses to the end of a scarf.

 Gather some buttons or cover your own with fabric.

Hot glue the buttons in the center of the flowers.

Wear It With Pride!
