Looking at our wardrobe we often get caught up in the moment wondering about our old faded scarves. Thinking of throwing them out? You might want to give it a thought there!

Scarves have given you a lifetime of their services by glorifying your look and making it even classier. But now that they have lost their sheen and new scarves have replaced them, it’s time to put old scarves to use. A moment where your ‘best out of waste’ skills learnt in school come to your rescue.

The number of ways of putting your old scarves to use tends to infinity. We’ll discuss a few to kick-off the creative processes of your brain after which you could try inventing some of your own old scarves craft ideas.

Girls’ accessories include bracelets, necklaces, belts, headbands and the list goes on and on. Well, the remarkable thing is that a scarf could serve you all in one. Take a scarf and knot it around your waist and you have a new belt. Take another one and wrap it around your lose hair. The scarf is your headband now! Ever thought of cutting the scarf into pieces to make little bracelets? Just take a little piece, twist it around to make it compact and tie it around your wrist. The necklace requires the same procedure; it’s just a matter of creativity.

What’s lovelier than presenting a gift to a friend wrapped in a soft and velvety scarf instead of paper? A scarf wrapped gift saves the trouble of neat and careful packaging, giving a funkier look. All one has to do is softly fold the scarf over the gift and add a ribbon over the top.

Imagine someday you’re wearing your scarf, and it’s not around your neck, waist, wrist or head. It’s your pretty frilly skirt! All you need to do is find a tailor and you’re good to go. Likewise, a lot of garments could be made out of a scarf, especially from the sheer stuff. With their already beautiful patterns, the old scarves make you look chirpy.

It’s unbelievable to think of a simple scarf being used for home decor. A variety of coloured scarves could be actually stitched together and turned into a beautiful rainbow bedsheet or a sofa cover.

Fold your rectangular scarves into triangles and tie them together in knots through the ends. Your beautiful festival hangings are ready to glorify your home sweet home. One canliterally never get enough from old scarves. They could possibly prove to be the most versatile home decor items one could use.
