DIY Color-Blocked Infinity Scarf

Nothing beats the versatility of a classic white cotton t-shirt. You can pair with jeans on the weekend, a high-waisted black pencil skirt for the office or toss an oversized tee over a swimsuit for a day at the beach. But you know what else is great about a t-shirt? It makes a great DIY material! For this project, in partnership with Brit + Co., we decided to turn two white cotton t-shirts into two totally different scarves. Check out the video above to see each of these pieces come to life, and follow along for the in-depth tutorial.

What you need


What you need

  • White Cotton T-Shirt
  • Tumble Dye Spray Dye
  • Scissors
  • Painter's Tape

Let's Get Started

Step 1

This materials list is easy as pie! You can get a white cotton t-shirt just about anywhere, maybe even in your dresser? For dye, we opted for Tumble Dye spray dye; it’s easy to use and doesn't involve boiling water, toxic fumes or any extra bells or whistles.

Step 2

Take a large t-shirt and cut it in half, directly under the armpits of the sleeves. You should end up with a tube – AKA – an infinity scarf!

Step 3

Use painter’s tape to create a design of your choosing.

Step 4

Step 5

Slip the tube of cotton over a piece of cardboard and you’re ready to add dye.

Step 6

We used coral and purple spray dyes. We let the spray go a little past the tape on either side to create a cool gradient effect.

Step 7

Let dry.

Step 8

Peel off tape.

The infinity scarf is a perfect piece for bringing a light airy tone to your fall fashion.
