Retro Home Decor: Tip of the day – No Tangle Scarves


If you’re one of those people with a few dozen silk and satin scarves, you might find that keeping track of them and not getting them tangled together can be a pain if you hang them up.

If you fold them and put the in a drawer, have fun folding them again as you look though the pile for one.

Here’s a simple and  cute way to add a bit of Retro Home Decor to your abode. Find the prettiest satin ribbon you have, preferable 1/2″ (1.27cm) in width or less, the length you cut will depend on your scarf length and size, but it’s generally safe to say that 18″ (45.7 cm)  works for silk or satin scarves between 2′ and 2.5′ (61cm and 76.2cm) with a width of no more than 12″ (30.5cm).

Now wrap the scarf around your fist, remove it still holding it tightly in your hand, wrap the ribbon around and back, and tie  it in a bow.

Stick about 5-10 of these in a small basket or glass bowl. Voila! Simple, easy an cute!
