Scarf Styling: How to turn your scarf into a Vintage Bow!

May 2nd, 2015 § 0 comments

In this post we are going to talk you through the step by step process of turning your scarf into a vintage bow, also known as a vintage flower. Once you’ve created your bow you can wear it in your hair, as a belt or simply around your neck. It’s such a great versatile way to wear your favourite scarf!
Firstly you will need a square scarf. The fabric shouldn’t be too thick so a silk twill or synthetic scarf is ideal but anything that helps it to have some structure will work fine!

Lay your scarf upside down on a flat surface. Take two corners at opposite ends of the scarf and tie them together in a small double knot.

You can ajust your flower by making it bigger or smaller depending on how tight you pulls the ends through. We prefer a bigger flower ourselves so we tend not to pull it too tight.
