Who needs a scarf tying lesson? ME!

Ohhhhh, do I have a treat for you today. Stacie from Scarves.net is such a sweetheart, and she emailed me and asked about doing a guest post, and I happily accepted! 
Yeah, I'll admit it. I buy scarves, and have NO idea how to tie them. I still do the "wrap it around, put one tail down the back and one down the front" thing. Ya know, like an airplane pilot, or how an 8 year old would do it. 

Hello! My name is Stacie Grissom and I am a new writer over at Scarves.net. I am so excited to be writing for Jen today-- she is such a creative crafty lady and she makes the cutest birthday treats ever. :) A bit about me-- I live in Indiana. When I am not coming up with scarf ideas, I love to sew and work on crafty things to put on my personal DIY blog. I also have an awesome three-legged dog named Bridget. She is so cool that she actually has her own Facebook page. Hehe. :)
 
As a writer for Scarves.net, I get to think and write about scarves all day, so I've got some pretty fun ideas on how to wear them.

Where to get these lovelies:
 
I am sure most of you know the usual ways to wear scarves, but I am going to show you a few of my favorite ways that are a bit more creative.
 
1. The Scarf Braid

To braid a scarf, it is a lot easier than it looks. Seriously. And it looks so fancy after you are done! I have found that this works best for longer scarves and it does noWt matter if the scarf is thick or thin. Need a visual? See it on Youtube.
 
2. Rosette Neck Wrap

I love this rosette scarf tutorial because you can also tie a scarf rosette around your head as well as a headband. This style is also easy to do but looks really sophisticated and fun. Youtube video here
 
3. Scarf Bow

To tie a scarf bow around your neck, you probably need a longer scarf so that the bow looks proportional. Pair this tying style with a simple shirt and you can make any outfit unique and feminine. Check out the video on Youtube
 
Hopefully these tips will help you gather some scarfspiration for the coming cold months! If you want more ideas on how to tie a scarf, head over to Scarves.net and check out out 37 Ways to Tie a Scarf. I want to thank Jen again for allowing me to post on her awesome blog! Happy tying. :)


If you're looking for a new scarf, there are a ton of adorable ones at Affordable Scarves. My favorite is the Ashlynn Leopard scarf in black. I can't wait to rock it.

Scarves always look stupid on me, but I wear them anyway because I think one day I'll "get it" and make them look good, ha ha! Great post! :)
