DIY: Anthropologie Inspired Knotted Scarf Necklace

A while ago LoveK dropped off a bunch of her old scarves that she no longer loved. They sat in my closet for months until I saw the Strung Silk Necklace from Anthropologie and I loved it... Except I didn't want to spend $150 on it. So I made my own version out of LoveK's old scarves!

Here are the steps:

1. Gather some fabric.

2. Cut it in various widths, make sure that the length is long enough for your ideal necklace length.

3. Knot a few knots on each strand. Vary the length of the strands so you can layer the necklace.

4. Gather the end and hot glue it together. Wrap a piece of fabric to the end and knot it like below.

And you have your own super duper layered fabric necklace! Capiche?


  1. this is so nice
    great idea
    thanks for sharing

  2. Love this, it's kind of a cross between a necklace & scarf!

  5. This is a great idea! I never think of doing things like this - fantastic inspiration!

  6. julie, your necklace is another example of clever, creative, pretty, & funny girl you. i feel the need to incorporate the word capiche into my vocabulary.

  7. that's a great idea, you are so creative and talented:)

  8. This is beautiful!
    Thank you for sharing the how-to.

  12. This will be perfect for fall. I love the combination of colors and textures you chose for the necklace and like it so much better than the inspiration. I can see doing this with the right kinds of fabric also. I posted this on my blog - the top photo with a link back to your blog of course. Hope this is OK.

  13. What a cool DIY! I've seen similar knotted scarf/necklace ideas before, but I like the way yours incorporates different fabrics. Great idea!
