SO…. My friend Alex Evjen from AVE Styles, you know…. is a fashion stylist. Check out some designs I did for her HERE. She came over to my house the other day to get somethings together to style a recent photoshoot I was in. We were going for a boho/hippy/survivor look with lots of layers and colors. She had this brilliant idea to combine my scarfs for a chunky looking neck wrap (which I think was BRILLIANT) I have worn this scarf many other times since that photoshoot. She rocks. I think this idea is awesome if you want to add a whimsical extra layer to your outfit. This is a PERFECT accessory for easing your way into the fall months. Check out how to make your own below.

1. Get 3 scarfs you like and make a knot with one of them around the others.

2. Start Braiding a simple loose braid.

3. Tie the end off with the same scarf that you knotted to begin with.

4. Wrap it around your neck or drape it over your shoulders. I think this has to be the EASIEST DIY by far.

I made another one with my more chunky scarves. I wind this one around my neck and wear it as a loose necklace. If you make one… post it with a photo here in the comment section. It’s so fun to see what other people do. EEE so excited. Photos of me by Maile Wilson.
