DIY Anthropologie francis scarf

[leather jacket: ChloƩ]
I love the retro glam feel of this Anthropologie scarf!  I had this amazing abstract face print satin that I reclaimed from a thrifted jacket.  I knew would be a great match with the cream faux fur. The scarf is really easy to sew and it will come in handy when temperatures drop in a few short weeks!
  • Faux fur (22 inches long and 12 inches wide)
  • Satin (1/2 yard)

DIY Anthropologie betim cuff

Anthropologie is one of my favorite places to search for DIY inspiration because many of their items are relatively easy and inexpensive to re-create. This cuff bracelet retails for $198 but I was able to make a similar one for $3 (price of the cuff- I had the fabric and glue already)

  • Cuff bracelet
  • Glue
  • Assorted strips of fabric
  • Metallic gold cord
