Welcome to Day 2 of SCARF WEEK!!! The biggest, baddest week in all of the blogosphere! Today’s Scarf Week tutorials revolve around all things dyed, painted, or stamped and this Graffiti Bicycle Scarf fits in FINtastically.
In case you have no idea what I’m talking about, last year I teamed up with Lauren from The Thinking Closet to host a week of scarf inspiration to coincide with Discovery Channel’s Shark Week (check out all of last year’s projects here) and we’re back with even more killer projects! The 2nd Annual Scarf Week will be packed to the gills with crafty scarf fun and terrible shark puns. I promise it’s going to be JAWesome! (I warned you about those puns)

Dye It, Paint It, Stamp It
This scarf is so easy to make that with the right supplies you’ll be FINished within minutes! You’ll need a scarf (I used a thrifted white one), a stencil (check out my bicycle stencil tutorial), and Tulip Color Shot. There are other spray fabric paints, but I love how light the Tulip Color Shot goes on. So important when you’re working with light scarf materials! (Not sponsored, just really love this fabric paint!)
I made my bike stencil seen in this tutorial, but really you can use any stencil you like! Here’s another bike stencil that looks totally similar to mine if that’s the look you want. The only thing you need to keep in mind when working with the Tulip Color Shot is that just like regular spray paint, there will be a good amount of overspray everywhere. Make sure you block off the sections of your scarf that you’re not stenciling well!
Ready to Wear
Once you’ve sprayed the pattern on your scarf, allow the paint to dry completely, and you’re done! I love my Graffiti Bicycle Scarf ten times more than I did as just a plain white scarf. Just think of all the fun stencils out there that will look snappy on those inexpensive plain scarves you can always find at thrift stores!
