DIY Scallop Headscarf

DIY Scallop Headscarf


Headscarves are a great way to make your hair look incredible, even when you've only spent 5 minutes getting ready before running out the door. We used our new Stencil1 scallop pattern to make a stunning, one-of-a-kind headscarf that you’ll want to wear all the time!

For this project, you’ll need: American Apparel headscarf, Stencil1 Scallop Stencil, FolkArt Multi-Purpose Paint and stencil brushes.

Step 1: Place the stencil on one end of the headband. You can spray a low-tack adhesive to the back of the stencil to help secure it to the headscarf.


Step 2: Use the brush to paint in the stencil. Make sure to use a dry brush technique, this means that you’ll use less paint and apply several layers. Paint with an up-and-down dabbing motion to avoid the paint from leaking underneath the stencil.


Step 3: Lift the stencil slowly. Once it’s completely dry, move it over and continue to stencil the rest of the headscarf. Align the stencil to your painted pattern to continue stenciling.


Step 4: Repeat step 2 and 3 until your headscarf is completely stenciled. Heat-seal your design by ironing the headscarf.
