I am not sure what the temperature is like where you are, but this winter here in Atlanta has been weird. One day it’s 60 degrees, and then the next day drops to 30 degrees. Crazy right?! I am so anxious for spring but until then I still need to make sure I have accessories to keep warm. One of my favorite winter accessories are scarves. In case you are looking for a way to design you own scarf this winter, you should try out Plaid’s Simply Screen DIY Kit. With this kit you can create a screen print in minutes. The scarf above was made by Jacinda, over on Prudent Baby. To see how she made this design click here. The Simply Screen DIY Kit is available at Hobby Lobby, and Plaid Online.
