Instructions

You can use a store bought scarf or if you want you can use a length of fabric that you have hemmed to create a thin scarf suitable for this project.

Start by taking your dangle earrings and attaching a length of wire to them, you will need to remove the ear hook and just use the loop. Once your wire is attached, thread your coordinating beads onto the wire lengths in your desired style.

Next take your scarf and tie a knot at either end. Then thread your wire into the knot, depeding on your scarf you should be able to push the wire through the scarf fabric to make it very secure. Bring the wire end back down and twist back onto itself to create a tight secure hold.

Using embroidery thread cover up the twisted wire top and secure with knots.

You need to do this for both sides.
