Recycled Scarf Pillows

Give your old throw pillows a new look using old scarves. You can do this in less than five minutes and there's no sewing required. If you don't own any scarves, shop at yard sales or secondhand stores for pretty scarves under a dollar.


Approximate Time: less than 5 minutes


  • assorted fashion scarves
  • 14-16 inch throw pillows


  1. Lay scarf on table or floor, print side down.
  2. Position the pillow so that its corners lie in between the corners of the scarf. When properly aligned, the pillow should form a diamond shape on the scarf.
  3. Take two opposite corners of the scarf, tie around the pillow and knot. Take the remaining two corners of the scarf and do the same to form a second knot. Simple, yet elegant.

An oldie but a goody. Did a bit of sewing to make one using a handkerchief from my Grandmother's funeral, a hanky from my wedding, and sewed down the garter from my wedding as part of the design on the front, nice lacy Victorian effect, and with added sentimental value.
