This DIY faux fur scarf is a project that we made to match our adorable knit hat with the attachable fur pom on top. We’re feeling cozier just looking at the photos, let alone wearing this fabulous scarf in the freezing weather! Customize this project with your favorite faux fur and you are ready to make a winter fashion statement that reflects your individual style.

There are lots of types of faux fur, and we found ours at our local fabric shop. We decided to use a fur with a shorter pile (the pile is the length of the fur) for a more elegant look, but you can choose something with a longer pile for a fun alternative. Bolts of fur come in a few different sizes, so decide how long and wide you want to make your scarf before buying your fabric. You can find some of our measurements in the printable instructions below. After picking out your fur, make sure to read our tips and tricks for sewing with faux fur. It took us less than an hour to bring this DIY faux fur scarf to life – well worth it for some winter warmth!
