$5 Friday: Skirt to Scarf

We're back with another easy $5 {or less} project for you to tackle this weekend! You know how much I love a good deal, right? Well, a few weeks ago I was shopping with girlfriends and we found this gorgeous purple IKAT skirt at the Gap... only $2.97!! It was too big for any of us to wear, but I saw the potential so I snatched it up. {Sorry McKenzie!}


In about 15 minutes, I turned that too-big skirt into a fabulous fall accessory:
 

Find out how...


I simply cut off the waistband of the skirt {since it was gathered, that let out all the fabric and gave me a nice even piece.} It was already sewn together in a big loop so I just trimmed it a little to make it the width I wanted for my scarf:

 
Then I just sewed up the raw edge of the fabric, and voila! I have a brand new scarf in one of my favorite colors :)

Do you have any old skirts laying around that you can upcycle this weekend? Or maybe some old sweaters? Check out our DIY boot socks made for under $5 too! Happy Friday!
