How to Turn a Vintage Scarf Into a Necklace

Looking for a unique necklace? Make your own with a scarf in a colour or pattern you love, plus an old newspaper.

Upcycle an old favourite scarf — or go hunting for one in charity and vintage shops. All you need is an old newspaper to turn it into a colourful string necklace. Perfect to offset a simple T-shirt or denim dress.

You will need:

  • Newspaper
  • Old scarf
  • Scissors
  • Sewing cotton or embroidery threads

To Make:

  1. Tear up the newspaper – you will need roughly half a page per 'bead'. Obviously, the smaller the bead, the less paper you will need. Soak the newspaper sheets in water for about a minute until they are really wet, then scrunch them up and roll into tight balls, squeezing out as much water as you can. Leave the 'beads' until dry.
  2. Cut your scarf into two long strips (or more, if your scarf is very big).
  3. Fold the long ends of the scarf together and place a newspaper bead in the centre of the strip of fabric, making sure that you leave enough fabric at either end to tie it around your neck. Fold the fabric over the bead to cover it, then tie a piece of cotton thread tightly around the scarf on either side to create a fabric bead.
  4. Repeat with the other beads, working your way along the lengthof the scarf.
  5. If the cut scarf ends look like they may fray, neaten them with a small hem.
